Geelong Revival 2013

The two day Geelong Revival  (formerly known as the Speed Trials) was held in perfect weather over the weekend. Check the official website for more info and results HERE.

The Geelong waterfront area looked spectacular.

This is a terrific event to just wander around and get up close to all sorts of classic cars and motorcycles – plus a few invited newer motorcycles.  As I arrived the Kawasaki stunt rider was in full swing.

First thing I did was head down to the static motorcycle display. Below are a few favorites – being mainly 1970’s superbikes and the magnificent reproduction Vincents.

From here I headed to the pits, where $10 got me full access. Again, a few faves pictured below.

A lovely Elfin Clubman.

1964 model EH Holden. I had an 11 year old one of these as my first car.

A 1954 model Corvette.

This Norton Atlas was pretty quick.

John Kaiser had his Kawasaki Z1000 drag bike out of mothballs – and it was fast! This ‘fella is the ‘go to’guy for Kawasaki’s in Geelong (JK Motorcycles).

Jack Findlay won the 1975 FIM International Formula 750 title (beating Barry Sheen) on this Yamaha TZ750.

Some of the promotional Revival girls – evoking the wartime era with their outfits.

Sunday was another great day, so Marty and I took to the hills for the day, travelling inland to the Timboon distillery for lunch then back to Lavers Hill via the 12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road, then headed inland through the bush to Forrest via Turtons Track. All up, around 350 kms in perfect riding weather.

This little fella tried to take a piece out of Marty’s arm!

Yet another gratuitous ZX14R pic below!
