Here's a quick wrap up of my 2 day mini-epic Left Mooroolbark at 9am Thu and rode to Noojee, down through Fumina Sth, Toongabbie, Perry Bridge, Bairnsdale, Lakes Entrance, Orbost, Cann River, Delegate (NSW), back over the Vic border to the start of the Bonang Hwy. About 650km found me facing a sunset and it was time to set up camp. Lights out at 7pm, alarm set for 6am. The idea was to break camp by 7am and get home mid-avo. My body had its own agenda, though. I woke at bright-eyed and bushy-tailed just after 3am and thought; 'What the feck! Let's try to beat the storms' Broke camp by 4.30 and acquainted myself with this challenging road with the assist of my magnificent high beams. Thank you, Suzuki! I quite like this road. It's a sort of three-in-one deal. Fairly tight and technical on the Nth end, then that decent dirt, onto the beautiful fast sweepers on the Sth End. I allowed myself a fairly loose relationship with the speed limit in some parts, as there was no traffic at all. Beauty! Hit Orbost around 6am, just in time to capture a magnificent sunrise and a servo opening. Then home, in time for lunch. Only caught a couple of quick showers near Traralgon and pushed on. The 'ahem' new panniers worked well. Nothing fell off the bike, including me. Need to sort out a screen before the next road trip, as my neck is a bit sore from the wind blast. Boo-Hoo! Just over 1,100 km travelled and only 2 refuelling stops. Really lovin' the big tank.
