Alright jokers, enough looking at bikes, time to RIDE!
Saturday 25th 9am - meet at Reds cafe for a quick coffee and breakfast for anyone who didn’t have their 10 weetbix.
^If you live in Perth, you know where this is in Leederville. We shake the foundations and scare the little children at 9:30am on our way to meet the southern crew in Mandurah at the car park after the bridge off Mary St
Google maps says it’ll take 1hr 15mins so if we leave Reds at 9:30am, we’ll be at Mandurah at 10:30am :)
We’ll make our way from Mandurah to Dwellingup for lunch and then head our seperate ways.
Should be fun, bring your camera’s and GoPro’s.

Some pics from Sunday’s Perth Cafe Run #2.
We stopped for lunch at Dwellingup so I whipped my camera out and took a couple of shots before the rain came down. A lot of bikes out on Sunday…

Count the “up”s
Perth Cafe Racer Run - Nanga Forest 25th Sept.
Most people have an alarm clock to wake them up. I have a 2 year old boy who loves nothing better than to creep up on me while I’m fast asleep and shout “DAAAADYYYYY”
A great way to wake up on a sunday morning eh!
I look outside and it’s sunny, which is a pleasant surprise as the weather hottie said showers are to be expected. I jump on the Kwaka and head to the first meeting point to fill the tank with go go juice. Brad rocks up on his blingitty bling cruiser and then we head south to meet the rest of the crew at Mandurah.
Sunglasses Welding Helmet is essential when looking at this bad boy!
Pleasantries are exchanged and we head off with Boof on his Bonny leading the way to Waroona for another top up of the magic liquid. When we stopped, there was a group of Zed’s out for a dawdle.
They asked us which way we were heading and then took off in the opposite direction!
Tanks were filled, ego’s were pumped and Nanga Road was calling for us. Boof said “Ride at your own pace” and promptly P#$%@d off.
The clouds were looking ominous so we gave chase along Nanga Road (definitely one of the best playgrounds in WA). A couple of Bonnevilles and a W650 Street Tracker led the way with the Thunderbird and the Warrior scaring wildlife and logging trucks off the roads behind us.
We rounded a bend to see three learners racing to be the first one to die. They came onto the wrong side of the road and into the path of the Warrior. Some good riding by Brad and an accident was averted.
An outstretched foot to the helmet of an oncoming moron is not an accident.
After 50kms of twisties, I could hear my stomach rumbling…oh wait…WHAT….THE….FFFF…
Not my stomach after all, just the Thunderbird roaring past to get to the steak sandwiches before the rest of us.
Dwellingup greeted us warmly with the pub occupants coming out to see what all the noise was…
Is that guy front right chowing down on the girls head?
When the Harley riders saw the badass Cafe Racer crew roll into town, they jumped on their tractors and rumbled on out. It was time for a lemon lime and bitters…and some photos.
My favourtie vehicle of the day was of the 4 wheeled variety. Am I fired?
Saab Monte Carlo V4
Clouds were getting darker so we headed off to Dandalup were we filled our tanks and bid the Southerners goodbye before heading north back to Perth. Then the clouds delivered on it’s promise and soaked us to the bone.
Nothing was going to wipe the smiles off our faces. No bike troubles, no accidents, no police and when I got home, I open the roller door to my boy shouting DAAAADYYYYYY!
A good day was had by all.
