Motorbikes and Fish & chips!

Aussie ZRX 1200 on Pier 2, originally uploaded by gavin.warren.

It was a perfect day – not a cloud in the sky and the most beautiful light breeze to keep things mild and temperate.

We took a ride down to the Williamstown waterfront for fish & chips and a stroll…..

The only place in Oz that was relatively deserted – Willy town – no idea why!

This is the ZRX 1200R that I swapped for the Triumph Thruxton – while I loved the Thruxton, I needed some cash and the opportunity to sell it came up, and so I have now gone back to the UJM – (Universal Japanese Motorcycle) style of bike. Cheaper, more reliable, more comfortable and ironically, faster…. not that I spend much of my time speeding nowadays…

Oh… BTW…. If you go to Williamstown – find another fish shop other than ‘Mussels’ the Prawns were rubbery, the chips were manky and they charged $1.50 for a thimble of Tartar sauce.

  1. Great looking bike Gav! Hope my CX650 comes up looking as nice once I have finished the resto (prob in about 5 years at the rate I am going!)
