Pacific Ocean to Indian Ocean Motorcycle Journey: The Portland Toy Run

Continuing the journey along Australia’s Great Ocean Road, I took a couple day breather in Portland, Victoria. Having previously met David Upton at the Horizons Unlimited event in Cavendish in 2013, it was nice to know friends were waiting. 

David started the Portland Toy Run in the 90’s, and after 21 years it’s going strong. It was a pleasure to join the hundred other motorcycles and scooters donating toys for kids and families in need for Christmas, 2015, and for a ride around town. It was also a reminder of people’s generosity, and as one reader said, that “people are people”, everywhere you go. And in my experience, most people are good people.
