  Save Our Sol Ride

 Once again it was up to
the Tongue of Fire B.C.
to save the Earth and the
Solar System itself. 
 With our Sun fading into
a premature heat-death
it was decided that 
someone had better do
something about it.
 Pagan peddling rites and
general burning of stuff
seemed the only option
to re-invigorate our 
failing Sun.

 Such rites included the
offering of a shiny new
freak-bike to the spirits
of the highest mountain...

        El Grapadura laughs at the laws of Physics*.

 ...and the donning of Magic
Druidical Pagan dress...

        Elvis Boozely may require de-lousing.

 ...and also this.

        Can anyone spot the Tonguer?

 With the Sun failing before
our eyes, the weather was
bleak. But not so much as to
put off the dedicated freakers.

         Hairy Poppins?

  We were fortunate enough to
have international guest**
"Andre die Deutscher" who flew
down from warmer climes just
to aid us in our quest. We were
unfortunate enough to let him
get lost just a little way into the
Up/Down-hill section of the ride.
We set about looking for him.... all places.

          "O.K. Now cough". *

 Eventually he was found and
the downhill section completed.
It looked something like this:
 ( Warning! Loud wind noise! )

    For sale: Honourary Tonguer Wanga's handle bars.
             ( Seems he no longer needs them.)

 Then it was a race against time
across the plains to the 

        Note: The Cosmic Warrior German
       can be seen here on the left of the picture.
       (Take a good look 'cos he gets lost again) order to set fire
to our Tony Abbott styled
Wicker Man before the setting
of the Sun....

        A splitting image. at precisely Sunset, 
(give or take an hour or two)
firey brands were applied to
the Wicked Man, but just like 
our leader it proved a bit wet.
 A couple of drops from Wanga's
hip-flask of accelerant soon got
him going....

         Burn Motherfucker!!!!!!!

...which is when things
started to get Real Freaky!!!

         Mate or fight?...They seem unsure.
 Happy Winter Solstice All!!
( Except for you know who.)
        *With this truely
        beautiful machine.
       **Andre was a nice guy
       and probably not lost
       up anyones Bum.

     Cargo Bike Ride

 After an early meeting at Belair
 it was a pleasant Scream down
 to the 'burbs for a coast to the
 city for a hand-full of bleary
 eyed Tonguers. Noise making
 being the theme, El Grapadura*
 once again proved his mechanical
 prowess with his "I'm bangin' that"
 rear drum set-up....

....while The Supreme Underling
Goooglox** was content to raid the
Music Room & Cable-tie Drawer for
anything that could be strapped on
and hit with a stick.

 Others however were content with
 Sunday morning moans & groans....

 ....while some simply proved that
style and functionality can work out
their differences and get along with
each other just fine.

  At the event, everyone's Christmas's
came at once when Bad Santa arrived
with the fully stocked KegKumbent....

 ....and went on to win the day and 
the "Toughest Bike" award, complete
with trophy! He was all smiles too!

No award was given for knowing 
where the thirsty Tonguers
could be found.

 Thanks go to Bad Santa for the beer,
and to Peewee for giving us something 
to do with our FREAK ON!!!
