    Part 1 - Phillip Island to Melbourne

    A quick ride down to Yarragon from Morwell to meet up with PompyPompy for what was to be one of the best riding days we had. PompyPompy took us on some of the nicest riding roads, tight corners, long corners, short stretches, fast corners, technical sections, it was truly wonderous... And the scenery was fantastic!

    It was then on to Phillip Island to meet up with jonnymacjonnymac and his family along with chillibuttonchillibutton & PSYKCPSYKC. Also got to meet marczx7marczx7 who is JM's garage partner. Phillip Island is awesome. I'm not into doing track days myself but watching jonnymacjonnymac and co race around, well it's so great in real life!

    After Phillip Island PompyPompy led us on anther section around and up towards Melbourne. It did start to rain a bit heavily so some of our gear got a bit wet but the ride into Melbourne itself was pretty good. Drivers were very considerate when hornethornet's battery died and when I stalled the XSR in the middle of a busy intersection. We made it to the hotel eventually (thanks to SpiritechSpiritech and cjvfrcjvfr for helping hornethornet with his battery issues) and an extra thanks to cjvfrcjvfr for taking us to and from the Tuesday Night Dinner.

      Hahaha, That's because I made some smart-ass remark about your height and you were nice enough to squat down :)

    Glad you enjoyed South West Gippsland, there are many Victorian riders that have no idea those roads exist (y)
