Bungendore Pie Shop
(via AutoItalia)

Sunday, 17 April 2011

Back in 2005 this was my first run on my L plates on my CB250 and it is a sentimental favourite.

This year it coincided with Auto Italia so most of us stopped there for an hour or so before heading on to Bungendore. We lost a couple of members who stayed on to display their Italian machinery. Some other riders went to Bungendore first for their pie instead, then back to Auto Italia for a leisurely peruse of the vast array of bikes/scooters and cars.

These days the run travels to Sutton Road, then Norton Rd and onto Bungendore Rd which is a great mix of winding roads through the country side. Craig's Rudge behaved itself and took to the roads with gusto and my RD350 just loves those roads and zipped up and down the hills with the obligatory 2 stroke puff of smoke trailing behind.

The pie shop is always accommodating with a plethora of pies, sausage rolls and other yummies and refreshing coffee, and it wasn't long before the streets of Bungendore were inundated with our troops, feasting on pastries.

When Craig and I decided to go, the Rudge decided that it didn't want to just yet. Despite repeated kicking (the kick starter, not the bike) and cajoling and threatening with the back up trailer, it didn't want to play. Tools were sought and magneto checked, spark plug inspected and found to be clean and dry. There was spark and fuel and compression but even the addition of aerostart failed to get a bang.

Just when we thought Craig would be off to Queanbeyan on my RD to pick up our trailer, one more decent tickle of the carbie and an almighty boot on the kick starter brought the beast to life and off we went. Another great run on a great day. Thanks to Dave Bryant for back up duties.
Til next time,
Cheers,
Lisa Mill.
