My thanks too Rex for organising the day. When I looked around at the guys there I realised it could have just as easily been me. I was in the conscription ballot back then and was lucky enough to not have my number drawn out.
The wind was a bit "challenging" on the way home but a good day.

Yeah, good onya Rex. It was a good one. Thirteen riders braved the elements.
I think we were all impressed with the solemn service and appreciated the warming cuppa afterwards.
We thought the wind was crook on the way down... bloody hell, it was nothing compared to the return trip along the freeway.
But it was a good day because we got to ride our bikes. Thanks for the company.

Thanks for organising this one Rex , I almost got home without getting wet but because I had to stop at Repco to buy a motorbike globe then I did get wet. a very moving solemn service to be sure, got a new V.V badge for my jacket too!! The wind on the freeway tested my bike handling skills,,,!!
