We had a busy day on Sunday. Started off with our usual delicious breakfast at the Earthwater Cafe, then motored through to Railton to see a bike show. We went in the car because I don't like leaving our very expensive riding gear sitting on the bike while we wander around the show, too many sticky fingers around, even in Tasmania.

There was an impressive selection of bikes on show, including 3 immaculate Kawasaki Z900's, and a rare Suzuki 125 Stinger, a bike I can remember lusting after when I was still a school boy. I can't believe how people can keep an old bike looking so good, you could never actually ride it, so what's the point, it's for display only, and I find that sad.

Then we motored through to Deloraine to meet a fellow Rhodesian bikie from Bulawayo called Bert Furmston, who is working on a wind power generating farm up at Wadamana in the central highlands. Bert saw my posts on FB and looked me up. We met and had a delightful "whenwe" session over a meal and coffee. It was great to meet some one who can relate to your experiences.

There was another bike show in Ulverstone this weekend, so we took a drive down with a friend from Mole Creek, to reminisce over our old bikes, and very enjoyable it was too. On the way, we managed to show the friend, who is a local, some roads and scenery that he had never seen before.

It's been a busy weekend. On Saturday we had a morning market at the Mole Creek public hall, and an agricultural show at the village of Chudleigh, a few Km down the road. Today, we had our usual breakfast at the Earthwater Cafe, in glorious sunshine, then rode to Deloraine to see the annual car show.

Once again, there was an astonishing number of high quality, and high value, machines on display. I was only able to photograph a small percentage of them. Thankfully, it was a relatively cool day, +20C, but it was still hot work wandering around in full leathers looking at cars, I soon lost interest.
