Niverville Parade Report

Attending from AMCM were a total of nine bikes, including Chas, Flo, Wally & Joyce and myself from the south, and Ken & Don Charleton, Joe and Sarah from Winnipeg. Greg O’Kane with wife Marie and (I think) grandson from Niverville led the group displaying the AMCM banner. (Hope I haven’t missed anyone.)
This was the first time I participated in a parade, and I found it most interesting. I also discovered that one needs a liquid cooled engine with a fan to be in a parade, because my bike overheated for the first time ever to the extent that the engine sounds changed, and also the fairing of my bike now has a break near the exhaust caused by the heat.


Chas and Tom had anxiously watched the weather networks all week. Forecasts differed but all predicting rain at 80% and some warning of afternoon storms as high as 90% with torrential rain! Plan B was called for and the picnic benches were moved into Chas’ covered “breezeway” and two 10 X 10 tents erected.

An opportunity to try out our newly-arrived AMCM tent, which went up very easily for the erectors following the instruction booklet. As predicted the rain started at about 9am and continued all morning and unfortunately dampened the spirits (literally!) of the less determined, and only about half of the normal Perimeteritis number turned out, mostly on four wheels.

Not so Sarah and Joe! Completely undeterred by the pelting rain; both with no windshields, and in the true sense of “conquering perimeteritis” they arrived, soaking wet but happy and smiling! But even before Sarah and Joe, Wally was the first to arrive all the way from Westbourne. Even Larry Wooly, famous for having ridden his Ural to every meeting for one year, summer and winter, came on four wheels! The terrible affliction known as “Perimeteritis” truly conquered by these brave souls!

Barry Smith and Judy have attended every Perimiteritis for all 8 times and we have relied on Barry, who claims to have great influence, to organize good weather for us and he has come through every time! This time though we feared the worst. His influence must surly have diminished or even been lost altogether! How could the many weather forecasts all be wrong and the predicted late afternoon thunderstorm warnings be incorrect!!? Barry and Judy arrived at about 4pm and as they walked in the skies cleared and the SUN CAME OUT! I kid you not! The guys looked at their phones and the prediction was – – no more rain until the next afternoon! Morden not only had a thunderstorm the next afternoon, they had HAIL!

Thanks once again for another successful “Plan B” Perimeteritis and for all those who braved the weather and came out, plus the many helpers and family who step up year after year.

I am still looking for any other input from members with their projects….even some anonymous teaser pictures would be good. I know of at least one Indian in the works stage.

What better way to get warmed up for the upcoming bike season than a look back through a member’s recollection of attending a great day of motorcycle racing.
