The Easter weekend each year was a bit of an annual bike trip for a lot of the boys living in and around Cohuna. For a small town in country Victoria a lot of locals around my generation for whatever reason ended up riding motorcycles. Most of these guys are still riding today even though some of them don't live in Cohuna any more, but they still stay in touch with the one's that do.
So when the Easter weekend would come round we would head off to Bathurst in New South Wales for the motorcycle racing that was held at the Mount Panorama circuit. Cohuna to Bathurst was about 760km.
This trip in 1980 was my first as the year before I wrote my first Z1R off about a month before the Easter weekend. The Z1R in the photo was it's replacement.
