Spring in the Otways

It has been a brilliant weekend of Spring sunshine, so Marty and I took a quick sprint though the Otway Ranges on our typical day trip route.

Here’s a few pics taken at a roadside stop near Laver’s Hill.

All up 317 kms of riding pleasure, including the inland section of the Great Ocean Road. The ZX14 is now due for its 2nd service (6K kms service), which I will be getting done this week. So far I cannot fault this motorcycle, it is everything that I hoped it would be & suits my purposes very well.

  1. Looks great mate, weather been a bit up and dopwn here so not much riding has been done on my behalf….hopefull that will all change soon. Glad you are happy with the bike, I have never heard a bad thing about them.

    • Hi Roger, typical Spring here – incredibly unpredictable! We had winter temps, rain and hail a week ago yet today it’s forecast for 29C in Melbourne.

      Some of my friends thought that I was nuts buying a ZX14 at this stage of my motorcycling life, but I’d ridden a mate’s ZX14 and found the ergos really good for me. I bounced a few emails back and forth to Geoff James and found that he’d bought his CBR1100XX at my age – so why not buy what I really wanted, rather than a ‘sensible’ bike?

      Cheers Jules.
