VALE Uncle Roy


Sadly we must inform you that another one of our long standing members, Roy Bull, who has been battling cancer for 7 months, finally passed away peacefully at 7.50pm on Sunday 14 February, at the age of 67 years, only a few days before his 68th birthday.

He didnt like to talk about cancer, and thought he could beat it.
He loved the club and everyone in it, and liked nothing better than to ride his trusty Triumph with all his mates.

Roy_Bull_Order_of_Service



Date: Wednesday, 24 February 2016
From: Attilio


We left on Sunday at lunchtime and called it quits at Forster at about 6.45 pm. Stayed overnight. A great meal and great company.
Left the next morning and went directly to Brian Weelands place in Wauchope for a while where we were treated very well by Brian.
At about 1 pm we all left for the church. The service started at 1.30 and was conducted by Roy's next door neighbour of many years, who is a pastor.
Lovely ceremony, simple, and a great eulogy from Roy's brother.
We then adjourned to the cemetery for the final farewell.
Roy was buried in his motorcycle gear (we are informed...there was no viewing).
After that there was a nice get together at the local club, and our group left around 5.45 and hit the road, stopping about 7.30 to seek accommodation again.
We had A great evening in the RSL club at Karuah, a good Chinese feed and a couple of bottles of red.
Home around 2.30 pm yesterday.
Despite the circumstances, this was another opportunity for friends to get together and celebrate their friendship.
Our little group consisted of Brian Chris, Shirley Wishart and me, and other TMRA members also attended.
It was testimony to the kind of bloke that Roy was, that the Church was overfull with well wishers from all parts of hid life. in fact the motorcycle contingent was relatively small in the scheme of things.

Kind regards to all,
Attilio

Vale Vince
Sadly, we report the unexpected passing of a much loved member of the club.
Vince Hayes has passed away at the age of 67 years.

On the afternoon of Sunday 26 July 2015, he was returning from a ride with a few mates,
when he suffered a cardiac arrest and lost control of his bike at a roundabout on Captain Cook Drive,
near the Cronulla Sutherland Leagues Club.
He was rushed to hospital, where he passed away at around 5pm.

Vince has been a well known and much loved member for many years,
and his charismatic style of good humour and wit will be missed by all.

Funeral Details:
Thursday, 6 August at 9.30am
South Chapel
Woronora Crematorium
121 Linden St, Sutherland NSW 2232

TMRA Canberra Group - Last ride of the Year

On Thursday 27 December, after an excellent morning tea provided by Jenny Fowler, a small band of Canberra members rode down through Cooma to the Drovers Rest Café at Bemboka, and had lunch with Bob and Judy Russell.

drovers_rest_bemboka


The Drovers Rest is a relatively new café in the main street of Bemboka and has now become the preferred ride stop because of it's excellent meals and service. (It's painted purple, so you can't miss it)
We covered approx 350kms in total.
A good day was had by all, and Trevor was back in time to watch the cricket.

Have a happy and safe New Year, and see you at Bundanoon in 2013! (15 March)

Riders were:
Attilio Sciannimanica
Evan Kemp
Peter Houghton
Steve Keough
Trevor Fowler

Neath_Hotel-500px


Neath Weekend - 16, 17 & 18th November 2012

Members from Canberra (Trevor & Jenny Fowler) Bega (Bob (aka Birrong), Ron & Don friends of Bob, and potential new members) Maitland (Jim & Debbie Peters and Jeff Skillen) Wauchope (Roy & Debbie Bull) Central Coast (Ian Christiansen & Son Carl) and Sydney (Greg (aka Red) & Marie Swords, Barry Garner and Mick Cavanagh (aka Moses) all met on Friday 16th November at the Neath Hotel for what turned out to be a great weekend.


A bit of rain along the way threatened to dampen the weekend, but Saturday and Sunday turned out to be perfect riding weather, especially for those who had ridden so far to attend, and doing another ride on Saturday.


The pub is a heritage listed hotel, and celebrates its 100th year in 2013.


Publicans, Renae and Ben Hamilton, made sure that we were well looked after. The food was excellent, the entertainment awesome, and the service great.


They had more than enough room to accommodate us all (18 in all) and even enough room for another bike group staying ( 40+ riders and families) on Saturday night, with no problems!


Jim Peters organized the ride on Saturday (186.1Km round trip) through some beautiful country side and to Wangi Workers Club for lunch (another awesome meal).


The pub was well and truly alive with music on Saturday night, and everyone had a great time listening to Phil McNight who kept us all entertained well into the night!


A decision was made by quite a few members, to re-book the pub for next year, (8, 9, 10th November) and they will have no problems us all in if all members of the register would like to go.


A special thanks goes to Jim Peters for not only finding this great venue, but making sure we were all accommodated, and not to mention putting together the great ride, and booking us in for the great lunch on Saturday.

TMRA Annual Rally Report
by Attilio


Thanks to all that attended this great little rally in Bathurst on the weekend.

35 bikes attended with several categories all judged by the entrants.

Best Triple went to Danny R's beautiful unrestored 1968 T150T, and runner up in that category was another original condition 68 T150T. Well done stitchit.

Rick L took out the Clubman of the Year trophy for his past work in organising the annual Kearsely weekends.

Good to see regular attendee Col Mc from the Aussie Triples show, as well as staunch supporter (and anal concentric engineer) svalve who again kindly made up some unofficial trophies for us to award to some very deserving people!

The longest distance travelled to get to the event went to Dennis C who came all the way from Queensland, a distance of roughly 1300 k's for him. Now that's committment!

This small annual rally is a well kept "secret" with a happy group of longstanding attendees, many bringing their wives and girlfriends, enjoying the company and some great rides around the Bathurst countryside.

Look forward to seeing you all at next years event.

Sunday 3rd July...

On a perfect day for a ride, Red, Vince (great to see Vince well and back on the road), Barry, Nigel and Sophie all met at Mossy's place, an after a lovely morning tea, cooked by Anne Moss, we set off for the Headlands pub to meet up with Jimmy and Bobby T (who is also back on the road after a long spell, and it's great to see)

The headlands pub was closed so they headed to Towradgi pub for lunch, where there was a hot rod and bike show underway. Stayed for a great lunch, a long chat, and a great day.

Until the next ride...

Red

Bobby T rides again!

The Shoalhaven groups ride this month (19 June 2011) was also Bobby T's first outing since his mishap at Bathurst last year.

The group meet at Jimmy's place at Greenwell Point and comprised Jimmy (T'Bird), Viny (R3), myself (T140) and of course the esteemed Bobby'T (Speedmaster).

Our first stop was at the Greenwell Pt markets, where Viny did well to restrain himself from purchasing a somewhat large picture of Marilyn Monroe. We then ventured forth via Terara through Nowra and along the 'coast road' to Gerringong.

At Gerringong we stopped at the pub for lunch, when we pulled up there was much cheering and applause from a group in the 'beer garden'.
We naturally thought that this was for us, however it seems that is was to do with a 50th birthday party, inspite of this we had lunch there anyway.

During lunch it was remarked that how times had changed, with a group of distinguished motorcyclists like ourselves standing in a bar drinking soft drink.

After lunch we headed back down the Princes Hwy to Berry for a parting soft drink and to watch the 'passing parade' of motorcycles, which included a very nice Indian Scout that had been tastefully 'bobbed'.

Viny then headed of back to Sydney and other three of us headed south after what had been a great day ride under perfect skies.

Ride safe,

Toby
