Ist Anniversary Run a great success

Yesterday’s Run was a great day we got mixed weather, a reasonable turn-out & we met the CEO of Victory Motorcycles in Australia Peter Harvey. Peter is dead keen on Indian’s & expressed a lot of enthusiasm upon seeing our range at the lunch stop in Bunnyong, he was interested in the IIRA events & rallies & even joined our Association. The good thing is he wants our input, & we look forward to have him attend our various events in the future. The rest of the run went well Stevie’s raffle was one by Peter Kime, Ian Rook, & the Association donated prize  won by Rod Leaman. The Crown Hotel where we had lunch, had been advertising us for 2 weeks & half of Bunnyong & Ballarat was there to meet us when we rode in, unfortunately the only bike that used the trailer was Peter Kime’s 1936 as in sheared the dynamo drive sprocket rivets, seems funny that Peter’s new trailer that was used by Chrissy on the back-up vehicle had his own Indian on it! The ride back was fine rain getting cold & at 5-00pm also starting to get cold, on the way back at Anakie we were met by Guy Allen on his 2003 Chief Vintage, the ride through the back-way to Baccus Marsh was fast & furious with your webmaster on the 1944 outfit really nailing it to get home before dark. Many thanks to all those involved especially Steve & his partner Chrissy
