The Gippsland rally kicked off the riding season with Jim Micha and Neville Christie putting on an excellent rally yet again in Gippsland. It was perfect riding weather, with great roads and beautiful scenery.

The Beechworth rally had an excellent turn out with 54 Indians being ridden over the weekend. The weather held out for us on Saturday, we copped a storm Sunday morning before lunch, however it didn’t dampen anybody’s enthusiasm and hey its only rain and nobody came off their bike. There were quite a few new faces I haven’t seen before at Beechworth which was great and some new member’s first ride. We had quite a few interstate people attending as well.

The bus was a hit following the group around and will defiantly be considered for future rallies.

Daryl Jenkins Power Plus celebrates its 100 year birthday this year and he bought it out on Saturday morning to lead the pack out down to the main street.

Thanks to everyone for making the first all Indian swap meet on Friday afternoon at Beechworth a success we will continue to run the swap meet biannually in conjunction with the International rally in the future. Maurice and I would like to thank everyone for a great weekend.

The IMCA Christmas party is on Saturday 7th Dec at Alan & Geraldine Fagan’s see address details in the magazine. If you intend on coming please let Geraldine know for catering purposes, it is a great day/night to catch up before the silly season starts.

The Breakfast run will be the first run of the year and will once again be run by Daniel McAliece on Sun 19th January with a 7am start at Lilydale train station.

The Rubicon Rally this year is being held on the Australia Day long weekend in January at camp Jungai. Camp Jungai is a school camp located in the Rubicon Valley in close proximity to Thornton, Lake Eildon and Alexandra. An excellent low budget weekend with a great atmosphere with modern school camp facilities, where we all pitch in and cook our evening meals.

Check out the ride calendar there are day rides in Sydney, Wodonga, Yarrawonga, Melbourne and Gippsland’s. If you would like to organise a day ride in your area give me a call and we can get the word out so we can get our Indians out on the road.

Keep them ridden not hidden.
