Yep she’s back and after a couple of rides I can say she’s fixed. Running like a dream. I’d forgotten how pleasant she is to ride – linear, easy power delivery, manoeuvrable, comfortable – a great long-distance tourer.
Went for a 200 kay run through central Vic. Up through Kynteon and on to the old Calder Highway at Malmsbury. This is nice ride, now that the freeway is completed, with little traffic and no plods. At Harcourt we turned off for Maldon and stopped for a coffee.
Then on to Newstead and taking the road to Campbeltown, but turning off and coming into Yandoit from the back. A lot of old goldmines, abandoned churches and buildings through here. From Yandoit up the slopes of Mt Franklin, an extinct volcano, and onto Daylesford. Through the forest and a stop at the Redbeard Bakery in Trentham for a bun and apple juice.
Jane gave her Ducati a workout on our secret fanging strip. Sweet.
