Have a great one.  I've done the Great Ocean Road only once on a Road King,  would love to fang along there on the TTSE. Hope the sun shines on you. 
Always ride in control.

It is a good road, but the traffic and speed limits are annoying.  But I suppose more time to take in the views.

I have just watched Henry Cole ride it on UK TV. Looks great! Enjoy.

Hi Berber,
Its a great ride and the weather looks promising.
There's a nice quiet little pub in Wye River overlooking the ocean, did he stop there for lunch?

I can't remember. I know initially he was disappointed as a portion of the road is away from the coast and he had an image of a true coast road with sight of the sea.

He did go up in a helcopter halfway round to see it and it was spectacular. If I remember correctly, he had a sea view on the second half of the run.
