For all the RE5 owners in Aus, well Victoria at least, most would have heard of the the Reefton Spur. It is a great and challengening ride, even for new sports bikes, out of Melbourne through Warbarton, Reefton, Reefton Spur, Marysville, Black Spur and back down to Healesville.
Thought I would contibute a few pics of my ride through Reefton.

Cumberland Junction, at the top of Reefton Spur.
Healesville, at the bottom of The Black Spur.
Diamond in the rough, amoungst all the Harleys at Beachworth Bakery, Healesville. There were about 30 Harleys there, and a few Sports bikes, the old RE5 got the most attention!
Thanks for the great photos, I bet the harley people just wanted to go down to the local suzuki dealer and trade up, shame demand has out striped supply. Maybe we should petition the suzuki factory as a group.
Nice. Great to see an RE actually out and about. I'm a N S Welshman but have ridden the Healesville area and spent 8 days based in Bright doing day rides earlier this year. You guys have got some top riding in your state (well, the eastern part of it at least).
Good to see.
