The forecast was for a warm day but with a cool start it made riding my bike more appealing in anticipation of a great day spent touring with friends. I arrived at Watson, filling up my bike to enable me to ride without refuelling.
I was greeted by two other members also riding Triumphs and we settled into our discussions on the destination and possible route to be taken on our ride. We didn’t want to travel too far so we decided to travel via Bungendore to the Albion Café in Braidwood for a coffee.
We headed off with Michael leading the ride, Mick the corner marker leaving Mike to be elected Tail End Charley. We kept within the correct speed limit to reduce concerns of going too fast while maintaining a constant balance to create a harmonious ride. The traffic was heavy for a mid-week ride on the Kings Highway with people heading to the beach ahead of expected high temperatures over the weekend.
