Ararat Chinese Museum Sept 17

Post by Ron Howell on Sun Sep 24, 2017 6:12 pm

Following an absolute ripper of a day yesterday, it was typical Victorian weather that we woke up to rain and chilly weather, only 6 bikes, 7 riders and 2 car travelers braved the weather, but by the departure time of 8:30 am the sun was shining and we were hopeful of a dry trip to Ararat via Sebastpol. 
At Sebastapol we were joined by Garry F. and after smoko it was back on the road to travel to Snake Valley, Beaufort, Raglan, Elmhurst and into Ararat for lunch where we were greeted by Rob Ashmore.
After lunch it was over to the Chinese Museum to be met by our own personal guide, for those that have not visited the Museum before it is very interesting and certainly a wake up to how easy we have it now a days compared to 135 years ago, everyone had a very interesting hour and a half, and thanks to the Branch for shouting our admission fees.
It was then home via the mainly straight roads from Skipton to Shelford, Phil R. called the ride finished at Inverliegh, and we all found our own way home.
The other interesting things that happened during the day was the Ride Leader dropping a baffler out of his exhaust in the Barrabool Hills, and Tail End Charley (me) got a little tired at the services station and decided to lay my bike down for a rest, lol, everything is good.
Thanks to Phil for a good ride to and from Ararat, and to the other members that joined us on the day.

Cheers,
Gentle.

I've aded a couple of your pics Ron.
