Roaring Twenties Run to Nannup – May 2013

Roaring Twenties Ride 4/5 May 2013 Ken Vincent’s name is spoken in hushed tones of respect from Mt Clarence to Phillip Island but it is not his prowess on the race track which endears adherents of our glorious sport to this particular event. By registering early, one escapes the possibility of relegation to Nannup Hotel’s (in)famous Pink House, a ramshackle, turn of the (nineteenth) century with a motley assortment of rooms. The last nine to enter are booked into this place which contains a number of double beds in pokey rooms. For the 2013 event, the buxom barmaid, Priscilla, convinced those people to put a row of pillows down the middle of each bed and dream earnestly of Elle McPherson. A determined deputation stormed the front desk and a couple of the troops were assimilated into the “upper storey” hotel rooms, more about these later. It all started off at the quirky, rural transport museum in Boyanup, where local impresarios Murray and Sharon had gotten into the museum early on the Saturday morning, so all the Perthites (and Bunburites/Albanites) could park their vehicles in the back, secure carpark of the museum. Meantime, Ken and Dave Weeks, the nominated back up driver set up the Club’s Gazebo and starting boards on the exit road towards the South West Highway. Colin Brazil, whose vintage Indian’s magneto packed up on the eve of the departure, along with wife Delys, gallantly offered to stand in as reserve back up drivers in place of Lyn, who was unable to make it. So, by 9.30, a very respectable line-up of 28 pre 31 bikes were parked in a dazzling array along the old railway line. Furthermore, Murray and Sharon were dressed up in contemporary clothing, including tartan dress, stockings, top and tails, trilby for Murray and the de rigeur Mike Hawthorn racing bowtie. Andrew Barleet, also dressed up, in tweed and bulging “plus fours”. No deerstalker suits though, and clay pipes, something for next year maybe? The usual criminals were lined up on the start, Terry Mckie and Elliott Montagu on ’27 Triumph flat tankers (the ex Phil Skinner Triumph was in there somewhere too), Bill Cowlin and Rex Edmondson on the ubiquitous Slopers (Weeksy looked on forlornly, knowing that his own Sloper is already breathing Liverpudlian sea air). Kevin Badby was there on his glistening straight 4 Henderson, Spencer and Joyce on their veteran, tan…

Roaring Twenties Run – 19 May 2012

The Pre 31 Section introduced a new two day event for the 2012 club calendar. This run is designed to encourage members with the older machines to dust them off and give them a nice slow pace run back on country roads in our South West. The run started in Boyanup on the morning of Saturday the 19th of May, stayed overnight in Nannup and went back to Boyanup next day for lunch. [gallery link="file" columns="1"]
