The real motorcycle enthusiasts in the Gold Coast and Northern NSW regions braved the showers and pending thunderstorms for the Tweed Heads Motorcycle Enthusiasts Club Dinner Run held on Wednesday night, 25th March 2015.
The Run took us to Selfish Fish N Chips at Tweed Heads and was attended by 17 souls – 10 on bikes with 2 double-ups and 7 arriving like sardines in tin cans.
Our two (and only) riders from our last Dinner Run, Harry and Darren, didn’t turn up assuming they would be the only ones riding again and would need to take on the tasks of Lead, TEC and Corner Markers all on their own. A huge job for just two people.
Rumour has it that this is false and Darren had a sore toe while Harry is “away”. Thoughts ponder if Harry is “away” maybe having traded a slip of paper he received in the mail for a 2 week holiday complete with food, accommodation and a bar of soap.
Waiting at Kirra Sports Club in light rain we decided to hold out just a little and negotiate our plan of attack while those conveniently placed to home quacked off and got the wet weathers out. Those of us already a bit wet just let the evaporative cooling kick in.
Mexican stand-off. Are we doing Mexican or not?
Waiting for the heavens to clear.
Chicken wasn’t on the menu so we decided to chicken-out from our original plan to take a loop via Hogan’s Road and, instead, coasted down through Kingscliff and back up to Tweed for a taste of salt air prior to our meal. No rain in sight and we were greeted by refreshing cool air and a quiet, still night – thoroughly enjoyable.
Our alternate route proved to be the most reasonable option given that there can be some slip’ slidin’ away on the roads out back after a bit of rain.
Popeye had done a great job arranging a “Biker’s Hamburger Special” at Selfish Fish N Chips or we could choose from the menu. The “Biker’s Hamburger Special” could easily prove to be a staple for our dinner and catered Runs. The challenge goes out to Restaurants,Pubs and Clubs to provide us with the best “Biker’s Hamburger Special” you can dish up. We’ll rate them of course.

This was a great little run and an opportunity to get out for a mid-week ride and catch up with fellow Club members.
Thanks to Popeye for organising the Run and supplying the photos and to all who attended.
Our next Run is our Mini Poker Run to be held on April 12 2015. Be sure to come along and join us.
Another Dinner Run is in the planning so prep your taste buds and stay tuned.
