Part 1 - Morwell to Phillip Island
Part 1 - Phillip Island to Melbourne
A quick ride down to Yarragon from Morwell to meet up with Pompy for what was to be one of the best riding days we had. Pompy took us on some of the nicest riding roads, tight corners, long corners, short stretches, fast corners, technical sections, it was truly wonderous... And the scenery was fantastic!
It was then on to Phillip Island to meet up with jonnymac and his family along with chillibutton & PSYKC. Also got to meet marczx7 who is JM's garage partner. Phillip Island is awesome. I'm not into doing track days myself but watching jonnymac and co race around, well it's so great in real life!
The man himself!
After Phillip IslandPompy led us on anther section around and up towards Melbourne. It did start to rain a bit heavily so some of our gear got a bit wet but the ride into Melbourne itself was pretty good. Drivers were very considerate when hornet's battery died and when I stalled the XSR in the middle of a busy intersection. We made it to the hotel eventually (thanks to Spiritech and cjvfr for helping hornet with his battery issues) and an extra thanks to cjvfr for taking us to and from the Tuesday Night Dinner.
