I took a mid week run from Geelong along the GOR to Lorne, then headed inland to Forrest via Dean’s Marsh. My plan to ride Turton’s Track and the Otways was thwarted when it started to rain. At least it wasn’t smokey up there.The air quality in Geelong and Melbourne has been the worst for years due to smoke haze from the bushfires.
Straight after the ride I took the ZX14 to JK Motorcycles for its 6,000Km service. JK was telling me that Cameron Donald (a recent IOM winner) was spotted in the Otways after the historic meeting at Phillip Island. He apparently introduced himself to one Geelong motorcyclist who had no clue who he was!
