Every Sunday, the BMW Motorcycle Club of WA meets for morning coffee at Catalano’s cafe in Vic Park to talk about motorcycles and life. Around 8:30am, a group will form up behind the leader and head out for a nice ride to lunch in the countryside, doing a few hundred kilometres and away for several hours. It’s almost always a top ride and today was no exception.
Up to Lesmurdie and through the hills then down to the plain and a stint on the freeway to Kwinana then Rockingham. We’re now riding along the beach front, the ocean flat and calm with little wind to disturb. It was beautiful, a magic sunny winter’s day.
Next, past Point Peron and along a bit we come to Warnbro Sound, a magnificent wide bay with a line of reef in the distance and, we were told, dozens of shipwrecks below. From the lookout the view was beautiful and we stopped for ten minutes to take it all in. We even got a wave from a Harley rider.
Then off to lunch in suburban Mandurah at the bakery for steak and kidney pie.
I leave to come home from here and the rest of the group take off for Pinjarra and a stint in the lower foothills.
A good day out.
