Marg and Darren treated Sarah and I to a full day of activities in and around Mt. Gambier. This included a meat-pie lunch, a tour of several local theaters, and an attempted tour of the newly founded jazz school.
The first order of business, however, was the maiden voyage of Dave’s work-in-progress motorbike. Dave’s been building a bike from scratch (like, really from scratch! Machining his own parts, etc.) in the shed out back. After a couple quick laps, Dave came back and said it was very powerful yet. Seemed to be going heaps fast to us!
The whole Trotter family is deeply involved in the Mt. Gambier Motor Cycle Club, the only club in the Southern hemisphere, we were told, that owns its own track. They do everything from coaching, to scheduling, to racing, to track maintenance.
