Porepunkah 2017

We had a great long weekend away with friends from the Ulysses Club last weekend, March 3-6. Others left on Friday and spent the first night in Sale and then traveled to Porepunkah via Bruthen and Mt Hotham. We rode up on Saturday and traveled from Geelong via Bacchus Marsh, Boadford, Yea, Mansfield, and then over to Whitfield and along the King Valley. Sunday we took a long loop up to the Murray River, which was a very scenic run. Some more detail to follow, just a few pics for now! Altogether Mrs Tarsnakes and I did 1400kms door to door and the ZX14R performed flawlessly. Thanks again to Ron H (AKA Gentle) for all the route planning and booking accomodation.

  1. That is some expensive fuel!
    I’m feeling home sick so surfing all the blogs from aus and nz tonight.
    Think I am overdue to go for a ride 🙂

    • Hi Warren, Happy Easter to you. Is it even a ‘thing’in Japan? I’ve been to a historic motorcycle event at Braodford over the Easter break and will post some pics soon. I can’t imagine living in a country as a foreigner as you do, especially when your appearance is so obviously different from the locals. Unfortunately, I get homesick after 6 – 8 weeks overseas, and pine for little things like my dog and motorcycle!
