XS650 CLUB OF AUSTRALIA – 2011 AGM LAIDLEY QUEENSLAND
The Class of 2011 – Perry’s dog didn’t get to vote
Some of the XS 650’s on display. Perry’s brother Cam and friend provided live music.
Best XS at the
meet was a tie between the Red specials
of Brendan Woodberry and Michael
Gardiner. Michael generously declined
the prize that went to Brendan.
mention goes to Steen Jensen who has
owned his XS1 from new and brought it to
Australia with him from Denmark when he
contingent has arrived.
They came by
2, 3 or 4 wheels. Showing the diversity
of our membership bikes from Honda,
Kawasaki, Triumph, Moto Guzzi, Harley
Davidson and Can Am attended.
The bikes won the shed for the night
boys reverted to the bunkhouse. Some
very strange noises emanated during the
night. Perry now has enough sawn
firewood to last for the next 2 winters.
A couple of
Perry’s project cars made way for the
AGM report by Tony Gray and also a huge thank you to Perry Sargent for his generosity for providing the venue again this year.
President - Geoff Bamford
Secretary/Treasurer - David Rayner
Web person - Terry Gliddon.
Unfortunately Dave Rayner didn't make it to the AGM this year because of bad luck but he managed to get all the club business transferred via email to Perry's place so it could be read and tabled at the meeting.
Dave only made it as far as Tamworth on his journey north before he was beset by bad luck, after several hours of carby cleaning on Friday he set off confident in the bike's ability to make it to Queensland only to be thwarted at Tamworth when he pulled in for petrol only to discover his bag containing several things including his e-tag keys and several items of clothing had fallen off the rear rack on his bike
There was nothing for it but to give up and catch a train home after staying with friends overnight, and then catching a train back to pick up the bike after finding the spare keys. I'm sure this was a gut wrenching episode for Dave who truly loves the AGM's and looks forward to them every year. Better luck next year Dave.
