MILK RUN RIDE Gippsland - November 18-19 at Canterbury or Bunyip

November 18, 2017 at 8:30am to November 19, 2017 at 4:30pm
ThemeMooo! This is a repeat of a 2-day weekend ride we did two years ago. We'll learn about Victoria's dairy industry as we meander through the rich rolling green hills of Gippsland which produces a quarter of the nation's milk supply. We'll look at modern milk-processing factories as well as the remains of old dairy farmer’s co-ops that have long closed. The scenery is simply stunning as we ride along rural back roads used by milk trucks that pick up fresh supplies twice daily from the various…See More

Priscilla Queen of the Desert (or is that dessert?) is about to embark on her biggest ride yet. The 50+ year old scooter is off to Brisbane and the Gold Coast on Friday to attend a couple of scooter rallies. 2,000kms up over 5 lazy days, then another 1,000-kms over 2 more hectic days on a navigation-reliablity trial for old classic scooters. She'll be meeting other Vespa Club members up there, some of whom will be riding up too. Priscilla never likes the direct route home so she’ll probably do…See More

Hello David,

Yes it has been a while since I was out with the club and life has got in the way of that. We live in the great town of Kingston on weekends making the weekend rides difficult. We are also planning to spend more time up there and in preparation for that we have sold our house and are moving to West Melbourne.
The new 150yo house does not have off street parking and is only a 20 minute walk to work. Enrico was destined for a life under a bike cover crowding out the side path and it is not what he was built for. Pams need was a great solution.
I still have my PX and LX up in Kingston. I plan to get across to the Bendigo breakfasts with the PX in the New Year. I also want to take her on the Walhalla ride in 2017
You have inspired me to take the slower path and tour on a 2 stroke so I will give that a go. Wallis will get a new clutch in the New Year and a carrier (thinking of putting that on the front to better balance the weight). Hopefully I can get a few years out of her.
She may end up sharing the Kingston garage with a Morrie ute but that discussion is for another day.

Yep I am still in and 9am is good for me.

No problems David I'll throw up a post on Facebook!

Hi David, I just checked the A line village, but it's booked. I'll do some asking around. There must be something on that weekend.

Thanks David ,,, looks like an interesting ride, sorry I missed it ,,, repeat ??

At 22:05 on May 12, 2015, Marc said…
Thanks for the tips David. I pulled apart my smallframe front end on the weekend, so hopefully the px isn't too bad. I'll shout out if I get stuck ;)

Hi David,
Thanks for the info on the rear shock and the link to Piaggio verification services. I'll be interested to get the build data on the scoots.
Regards
Clinton
