Apollo Bay & beyond

Team Tarsnakes took a run from Geelong to Apollo Bay via Forrest (coffee stop), then coastal on the GOR  to Laver's Hill, then home via the outskirts of Colac. At  307 Ks this is the longest run that Mrs Tarsnakes has done as a passenger in a very, very long time, and 60% was very twisty. We even managed to comprehensively hose off a young guy on a Harley through the leg from Ferguson to Gellibrand.

This was Mrs T's first time out in her brand new Alpinestars jacket, purchased from RevZilla online, USA. Dealing with RevZilla was easy and their service was excellent. The only downside for us is that they have a minimum order of $299 for transactions with Australia, which limits my purchases of some other items from them. This women's jacket  is a quality item that fits her beautifully and even with postage was $200 cheaper than we could purchase it here!

Geared up and ready to roll.
It was a glorious day in Apollo Bay

The harbour looked perfect on a day like this.
We had a lovely late lunch at Lavers Hill and chatted with a young couple from Bolonga, Italy who were heading for the 12 Apostles.

Although it was quite hot inland (around 32C) for the last hour of riding, this was a magnificent day out that we both really enjoyed.
