I am fortunate to be a member of the local car and bike club, the Good Ole Boys, based at Edenhope in the West Wimmera. Every month the members can join the morning tea run, organised by a couple of the gang, to visit various locations around the Wimmera and South East SA. This month I was able to go along on a brilliant, bright, late-winter day in my 1980 Chrysler Scorpion, and enjoyed coffee and cake at a local cafe before heading across the street to a vintage motorcycle shop where the owners have divided the space in halves, with one side showcasing the vintage motorcycles and associated tools, magazines, parts and more, while the other side features collectables.

I got to go out on my car club’s monthly morning tea run, which was to Coleraine to visit a vintage motorcycle restorer and collector. On the way home I took a detour down Giant Rock Road, between Coleraine and Balmoral.
