Tire break in

I took a shortish run today for the purpose of breaking in my new front tire. It was quite cool and very overcast when I left but slowly and surely the weather improved over the course of the day.

My route was from Geelong to Forrest, then along Turton's Track to Beech Forest, down to Gellibrand  and continue on to Colac to visit to Steve, then back home via the Highway 1.

Treaded tire seems to be the newest thing!

An expensive way to protect grape vines from birds
I came across the interesting plaque below

Steve's been working on the resto of this Norton 500cc twin cylinder 'Dominator'
The motor is fully reconditioned. It started easily and sat idling beautifully once Steve re-installed the carby.
