After a very busy 4 weeks having our first child I managed to sneak out for a ride. I thought of a smallish route through some twisties to one of my favourite bakeries. I decided to take the missus bike (1992 Honda CB250 Nighthawk) for a descent spin as I’ve just finished fixing a few things and wanted to see how much oil it’s using. I packed a few tools and some oil into my touring tailbag which looked a little ridiculous on the back of the little CB250 but it did the job. I left home early and wound my way through the Adelaide Hills to Amberlight Café in Lobethal. A great bike friendly café. After a quick stop I was off to one of my favourite bakeries, is it to only have a single favourite bakery? I pointed the little CB250 north through Chain of Ponds, through Kersbrook and Williamstown, some great sweeping corners. I was having way too much fun on a little ‘commuter’ styled bike, unfortunately I ran out of corners and arrived at the Lyndoch bakery. Decisions decisions, I ended up with a peppersteak pie, highly recommend! Still no word from the missus, back on the bike. While I was out north I decided to keep going. Topped off the tank in Gawler and headed to Port Wakefield via Mallala. I stopped at the entrance to the Australian Government Proof and Experimental Establishment just south of Port Wakefield for this picture. This is a 155mm Long Tom M1 gun on a M1 Carriage which came into service circa 1943. This type of Carriage is still used as a firing platform today. Some specs for military weapons enthusiasts: Weight: 12,564kg Muzzle Velocity: 853m/sec Maximum Range: 23,221 metres Projectile weight: 43.1kg Projectile length: 67.8cm Straight through Port Wakefield then turned south to cruise down the Yorke Peninsula. Luckily there wasn’t much wind as we were now on the highways humming along at 100km/hr. Before I knew it I was at Ardrossan.
