Spring has sprung in 2021, Regional Victoria is out of Lockdown and Shepparton Chapter Six took full advantage with a group ride. We set out from Shepparton in a notherly direction led by one of our trusty long time members Dave. followed by train of eager riders, some new members sporting L plates, on their first big group ride, other members remembering the freedoms of group riding into the spring countryside, followed by one of our Trusty founders, member No1 watching over the pack and all of a sudden for me, everything felt right and as it should be. We arrived in Yarrawonga, a small border town where we had a coffee and fuel up. Dave took us on a cruise past Lake Mulwala and we then headed across the rolling hills through the fields of green and yellow canola crops to view some Silo Art at Devonish and stretching our legs (pic above). Another blast onto Dookie where we met some locals, known to Dookie Bruce, at the coffee shop for our final break (pictured right), before heading back to Shepp. All in all a great day was had by all, incident free as we etch another group ride into the memory bank. For me this ride was extra special as we as a group were able to re-strengthen our bonds after a hard winter of forced separations due to covid. Until next time.....Stay upright and stay Sober!!

Omeo Anniversary update
Omeo cancelled.... Alternate Destination?
On the 28th of January, Chapter Six Australia held an Extraordinary service meeting in Bendigo. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the concerns around this years Omeo Run and the fallout from the devastating bushfires in the region in recent times. The facts as we understood them were presented to all members present, each member aired theirs thoughts on the matter and the ultimate decision was put to the vote. The Chapter Six Australia members who were present collectively reached a majority vote to CANCEL this years run to Omeo.
However it was agreed upon that an alternate destination would be sought so we could still celebrate our Groups great Anniversary.
Shepparton Chapter Six Motorcycle Groups next meeting is on Thursday the 6th of February at Scotts Church in Shepparton at 8pm. It is here that we will hopefully settle on an alternate destination and plan for the 14th-18th of Feburary Ride.
