Random Ride #8 – Taralga (Jul 2016)

The July ride to Taralga hosted 15 randoms – Klaus, Lee, Anton, Paul, Greg, Ray, Kenneth, Alan, Nas, Marcelo, Marcello, Loris, Harry, Steve & Tom.

Loris arrived on a new bike, a white Yamaha V-Star 650 with lots of shiny bits (a nice upgrade from the Laro250). We were also joined by brothers Steve and Tom (introduced by Marcello) who both rode Honda CBX1100’s. Also joining us for the first time was Harry (introduced by Greg). Harry, along with a few of us, works at the IMB and he rides a Yamaha V-Star 250.
