And the weather WAS good - I reckon I saw almost every motorcyclist in Australia out today!. Managed to do FTG to Healesville, Reefton Spur, Black Spur, across to yea, along the Glbrn valley hwy (great bit of road with flowing curves and dips and rises) to Seymour, back to yea, across to Flowerdale and Whittlesea, back to Yea, back to Seymour, back to yea and then home, 678 klms in 5 1/2 hrs, with stops for fuel, lunch, and fiddling with the ipod. Only saw one cop car, who flashed his lights at me as I went in the opposite direction (at a naughty speed). Didnt do a Uey, so just continued on. Am totally impressed with the Metz tyres, corners signposted at 70kmh swallowed up at 125kmh, and there was plenty in reserve. The left hand side of the rear is now worn to the tread edge, but not the right side. (yet). Totally magical day for a ride, mission complete!. Hoping everyone else managed to do the same!
