Great Ocean Road


Had the opportunity last week to ride a long stretch of the Great Ocean Road, from Torquay to Laver’s Hill. My riding companion was Marco, on an Aprilia Pegaso Trail, with road tyres and stiffer suspnsion than mine. I’m proud to say that even with my D606 nobbies, the KLR kept pace very nicely through all the corners and on the infrequent straight bits.

It was a fantastic ride, save for the bumper to bumper traffic on the way back. The bike was great, and the Earmolds were superb. The Wolfman Beta hung over the back of the bike very nicely, too!

If you’re ever looking for a place to stay on the Great Ocean Road, I can highly recommend Muxy’s Place in Johanna. It’s a log cabin that can sleep about 10 in comfort. We had five adults and two kids, and it was a top spot to relax.
