Our annual Ride 2014 - Cooyar Show!.
The annual Cooyar show ride was on again! Great company & entertainment, and plenty of cold beers!
So we headed out to Cooyar for our annual overnighter.
Was a bit over cast as we were leaving the shop but was great riding weather. Nice and cool and no hot sun. There was about 14 bikes as we headed out there, then a couple left us when we got to the harlem pub as they were just coming for a little blast. Then we kept on to Cooyar. 5kms from town Rob ran out of fuel so we got him a couple of litres to get there. When we got there Karen the publican's son had a bunch of mates down from Hervey Bay for his birthday. They were a cool crew and were up for a good time. As the night went on we fired up the BBQ and had a good feed then back to the bar!! After games of darts and a few sambuca shots there was Karaoke and singing at the bar to country music, Kaz was up on the bar dancing away!! We got to meet Gary MCCoy one of Australias best GP riders in his time and his mate Ben who used to race for Ducati, Buell and Morgan and Wacker. Great blokes!
Then Chris encouraged Rob to fire his bike up and attempt to ride it through the bar. With little encouragement needed Rob was on his bike and heading for the door. Unfortanetly his bars didn’t fit through the door way, so we decided next time we better take the dyno ramp so we can ride straight through the main front door. That'll work!!!!
So after a few more shots and beers it was time to hit the bed. Adam slept in his swag next to the bikes so he could sleep knowing they were safe and the rest of the crew had a bed at the pub. We woke up to a Bacon and Egg breakky and the highway patrol sitting across the road pulling everyone over as there was a show on in town the night before so they were trying to get all of the cowboys that may have partied too hard. So we fueled up and headed for home. Was another good day for riding.
As always was a great weekend out there at Cooyar, plenty of entertainment with the annual show and demolition derby. It’s a place we would like to ride too more often. So if anyone ever wants to come for a good ride, food, good pub and a bit of fun come out!!
You don't want to miss the next one!
