When I arrive in Melbourne, I wake up alone in the bus with the bus driver pushing me outside. One of this moment of loneliness...
But as soon as I've got my first cup of coffee and my brain starting again: I went to Internet to organize my stay and my trip on the great ocean road: I found a rental shop and I get my bike a 600cc HZ6 Yamaha around 12 PM, I ve asked for a smaller bike but they did not have any smaller and finally they gave me this one for the same price than a smaller one....so
At the beginning I was not really sure to drive it at it was a long time that I did not drive a big moto like that but after few meters, I fell really comfortable and that was the start of my Great Ocean Road adventure.
It was quite nice to get the feeling of carving with the bike in the turn over the ocean. I even did not want to go too quick as the scenery was just awesome terrific.
I even met a Koalas who was crossing the road in front of me: I think that he was as surprise as I of this encounter.
At the end of the day and as It was darker and darker I decided to come back. When I arrived to Apollo Bay, I was frozen: the humidity and the speed of the bike give me some hypothermia: I found a guest house with a real hot shower and some warm coffee and I could start to think again.
In the night: I meet some Germans and Thai and we did a card drinking game
