I was up well before the sparrow farted this morning, and off on the bike, in the dark, down to Devonport, to meet the FJR guys off the ferry from the big Island. Six FJR's appeared from the bowls of the Spirit of Tasmania, and the first order of business was breakfast in the Dockside Cafe.
That done, we set off, and within minutes, we had the first oops, when a couple failed to negotiate a U-turn after our leader took a wrong turn. Fortunately, there were no injuries, and only a few scratches on the bike. From Devonport, we proceeded up my favorite race track to Deloraine, where we stopped at the "Diner" for more coffees.
Then we set off up the Western Tiers, passed the Great Lake, to the Great Lake Hotel, where I said farewell to the group, and returned to my van in Gowrie Park. On the way back down the Western Tiers, I ran my helmet cam so you can see part of what we enjoyed.
