    Gday all.Weather has been hot down here. Around 45 degree c so i couldnt find any partners for this little ride so grabbed 4l of water fueled up and set off around 7am.The plan was to head up into the Otways from Geelong as its always around 8 degrees c cooler. For those who dont know the Otways its basically the high country the runs the full length behind The Great Ocean Road. Its literally littered with tracks waiting for the 950 to stir up some dust.Did around 450 ks for the day and had a blast. Thats it for my dribble hope you enjoy some of my pics.Hope yas like orange and blue:huh :poser:lol3
