OUR NEXT RUN WILL BE
THE CANCER RUN
With all this virus stuff happening and us in Northern NSW being put in a “bubble” we may as well make the most of as many rides we can get in, just in case of another full lock down, so SPREAD THE WORD.
A COUPLE OF REMINDERS FOR MEMBERS AND GUEST
Just a reminder to all who attend runs about Corner Markers. Because of the numbers of bikes we get on the runs it is extremely important that everybody knows about this very simplistic way of keeping everyone together so that we get to enjoy each others company at each and every stop including lunch. The corner marker is the rider on the bike which is directly behind the ride leader, so if you happen to be riding this bike and you come to a turn you MUST wait and direct all the following bikes around that corner, not leaving that corner until “tail end charley” turns up and waves you away, other people may wave to you to say thank you or hi but do not leave until tail end charley turns up . If you do not want to be a corner marker DO NOT be behind the ride leader it’s as simple as that, there will be plenty of people willing to ride behind the leader and become a corner marker. In the case of noticing that someone has not stayed on a corner please do not just keep riding, stay there and guide the rest of the run in the right direction. The “Ride Leader” and “Tail End Charley” will be pointed out to you before each ride when we are all called together for details of the run just prior to leaving the Kirra Sports Club so make sure you come in nice and close and listen to what is being said, it makes it so much easier for everyone. Also in case of a breakdown DO NOt pull in to a driveway etc unless it’s necessary for your and/or others safety as it will be easy for the back up trailer driver to miss you. Please make sure you have the club’s mobile phone number 0404423317 in your phone in case of a breakdown etc. It’s all pretty straight forward and simple right? so let’s make it work to perfection and get out and enjoy some great rides with even greater company. Thank you.
Thank you to all who attended Ricks funeral, it was a glowing tribute to a man who lived most of his life around motorcycles and who will be sadly missed by all who knew and rode with him.
RIP Rick Pittard
