No more bad guy in this picture, he just made his great escape

Just got back recently from two weeks off work and a 5,000km road trip from Sydney to Adelaide via the Snowies to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road and back to Sydney. I'd just like to go on record as saying that the Great Ocean Road IS ONE OF THE BEST MOTORCYCLING ROADS IN THE WORLD. Not that I've travelled many (any) of them but for 24 hours solid motorcycling through constant 45-55km/h corners in the middle of some of Australia's best scenery... Well, the very memory is sending shivers up and down my spine. Look closely at the middle photo, you can just barely make out the signposted road snaking around the cliffs. You're lucky I stopped to take these photos. Working a bike around these curves is as big a rush as surfing a big break.

Get down here and ride this road, please.
