Cabin fever

Having some decent weather at last gave me the opportunity to take a quick run down to Colac to visit Steve and then head home via Beech Forest and Turton's track. I didn't take too many pics, but here's a few.

This is a close up of the display behind my Honda in the avatar picture for this blog.

Today's run was a spur of the moment thing, but I'm really  looking forward to tomorrow's New Years Eve run to the 12 Apostles with the West Coast Procrastinators. The forecast temp is 38C for Friday. Some summer at last!


  1. Nice plasma-cut steel images Jules. The NZ Dept of Conservation uses the same technique for signage in the Far North.

    Wishing you and the family a superb 2011!

  2. Geoff - thanks and all the best for 2011 for you and the family. Do you have any rides planned?

    We've had a very cool and wet start to summer unfortunately. The weather forecast is just starting to look up now.

    Cheers Jules.

  3. Apart from the normal ad hoc rides, I'll be going to the international classic racebike meeting in Auckland in early February, followed a few weeks later by a long weekend ride with the lads up to the Far North. One of my riding partners hasn't been able to ride for a year following treatment for an illness and now he's fully recovered, it's a wonderful way to celebrate with him!
