Going up to see some mates in Kalgoorlie become interesting on the way up. Bit of a rest stop with a blow in this bag, poke your tongue out and say aaahhhhhhhh, that sort of a stop.

Anyway the catch up went down well, what a fantastic night. There was a great spread and plenty of entertainment all night, it was awesome. Well done and thanks guys for the invite.

Don’t have many pics but here are some whilst on our rest stop.

2nd Annual RSPCA Ride

Posted: 15 March 2015, in Events, News

While our efforts are aimed at assisting Veterans and their families it was decided early last year to arrange an annual ride to support a great cause – the RSPCA. We’ve all heard at some point how animals are known to assist in the mental health and well-being of people, so with knowing this and knowing some Vets in need, we could not look past arranging something.

The 22 Crew (our supporter club) with some help from Veterans MC members arranged for the second annual charity ride to raise some needed money. Neville, one of the 22 Crew, along with the assistance of RSPCA Inspector – Kylie Green, arranged for an authorisation letter to allow the collection of money on their behalf.

Once ’22 Nev’ got the green light a ride was arranged from Port Beach Fremantle up the coast just past Hillarys to Whitfords Nodes. The plan being to stop here before moving onto the clubhouse for a much needed frosty (this is beer for you Jimmy). The route decided upon wasn’t standard for a large group, but given we always gravitate to the same rides out the bush and back blocks it was decided to mix it up and go somewhere with good scenery and umm, bikinis.

The start of the ride allowed for plenty of stories to be told before heading off. It went well with the only problems being sunburn and an extremely slow section through Cottesloe Beach where the art festival – Sculptures by the Sea was being displayed. This resulted in an unescapable ride with a stop of around ten minutes while those on four wheels worked out how to park their family tanks. Interestingly there wasn’t a complaint as the weather was hot and the bikinis and associated hardware were on full display and for the girls there were boardies and bare chests. At one point we thought we were going to lose half the group to this. Normally we are concerned with people going off on the corners, only this time we were concerned for people running up the arse of each other while pretending they weren’t perving. From some of the comments overheard the girls on the ride would have gladly done another fly-by given the opportunity.

Once back at the clubhouse an auction and a raffle were run utilising many of the worthy prizes kindly donated. We had the pleasure of a Comp Burn-Out Car (thanks Tom) do a quick demonstration with a new set of tyres while still on the trailer. Leaving it on the trailer was an attempt to limit any fallout from the authorities if they saw it un-sportsman like. A quick dab of the throttle and the fully blown LS1 filled the area with smoke and rubber. This was quickly followed by the auctioning of a ride in the passenger seat of the beast at the next Motor-Plex meeting. The winner of this prize, Alice Robb from Statewide Institute of Training then humbly donated the prize back to enable someone less fortunate and would further appreciate the opportunity. Between the donations, raffles and the snags sold, a total of $7100 was raised with 100% of this going directly to the RSPCA. As usual some of the money taken over the bar goes towards the running of Cypress Cottage to aid Veterans and their families.

In all it was a great day for a great cause. We would like to thank all the other clubs and free riders who attended and supported this. The following details are some simple stats on why we did what we did:
The government provides approximately 5% of the RSPCA budget. To break it down further the RSPCA receives $500,000 of which $300,000 is for the Inspectorate and the remaining $200,000 going towards animal education. The Inspectorate animals cost around $3 million dollars a year. The shelter in full, costs around $750,000 a month to run. Without straining the brain to much the gap comes from you……You can now understand why the RSPCA also needs support. You can contact them on 1300CRUELTY (13002783589).

Last but not least we would kindly like to thank the sponsors because without them this would not be a success. Support them when you next need something that they can offer, they are as follows in no particular order:

Perth HD
Complete K9 Solutions
Fur Baby Boutique & Café
Masters Mandurah

ANZAC Day wrap-up

Posted: 28 April 2014, in News

What a day ANZAC Day was this year. A big thanks to everyone who came and celebrated the day with us, it was truly a great day.

An early morning start saw the members group up and visit various Dawn Services held around the Perth area, before heading into ANZAC House to catch up with some good ole friends and veterans.

By the time we got back to the clubhouse the party there had already started. The RSL was flat strap, so it was straight into it. There was plenty going on with bands, raffles, two-up and it was exceptionally great catching up with some good mates, some that I hadn’t caught up for years.

It all ended up pretty late and we had some great entertainment, including some after dark stuff. It was a fantastic day. Next year is the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC, so the party is going to be bigger and better.

Mean time keep an eye out on our website or here on Facebook for more events and parties throughout the year.

5th Rolling Bike & Hotrod Show

Posted: 14 April 2014, in Events, News

What a great day this was. Thank you to all that came and supported the ride and to the boys that made the day go so smoothly. There was a fantastic turn out this year, over 360 bikes and over 30 cars, one of my favourites was the Fatboy with the slouch hat paint job.

Starting in Rockingham we made our way to our first stop, the Mundijong pub. The bikes and cars lined the street whilst we all headed in for a well earned bevy.

We mounted up again to start our next leg, which was back to the clubhouse. A nice cruisy ride through the northern parts of Perth before we arrived back to the clubhouse, then the party started.

DJ-G was cranking the music whilst the boys were handing our drinks and something to chew on. There was people everywhere checking out the bikes and cars having a great day.

Well done to all those that won trophies for their cars or bikes, there was some well loved machines out there.

Cypress Cottage was the winner here. The whole day was to raise money for our Emergency Accommodation Support House for Veterans who need a place to stay in times of need. Cypress Cottage has just been renovated and is ready to go again, so this much needed day was to help these people out so they can get back on their feet.

ANZAC Day in is just around the corner, so get back down to the clubhouse on the day and celebrate with us. Its a big milestone this year being the 100th anniversary of WW1.

Thanks again everyone, see you on ANZAC
