  1. My wife and I are planing on coming to Melbourne in 6 weeks time. Off the top of my head I think we will leave Adelaide on the 15th Sept for a 5-6day tour on the Goldwing. There will be plenty of photos because she take photos on the move from the back of the wing. We have picked out our route and when I get back home I can give you all the details. I will spend Saturday with UG and crew, so we are look forward to catching up with some of you guys.

  9. Just a question. The M8, is that a toll and do bike pay?
  10. bikes have to pay on all vic tollways, but you can get day passes via citylink online
  11. Our fisrst day on the road is done and dusted. We expected a little bit of rain and a cold day and that is what we got. Leaving home at 0830 and having our first stop at Murray Bridge for acoffee and to let a rain band clear away. Riding from Murray Bridge through Karoonda where someone I know took the wrong road. And there I was riding along thinking..............I can't remember this. After the extra kms we stopped at Pinaroo for lunch. Back on the road to Waliup for a butt break where we deciede Swan Hill would be far enough. That made a 580 km day.
    Today we will ride to Jamieson, see you all tonight.

  13. That would have been great if we could have stayed, but..................my daughter is flying into Adelaide from China on Monday for just the one day. So we need to be home by midday to get things ready for a family dinner that night.
    Today was still a cool ride but without the rain. I love how green everthing is. Don't tell any of those Victorians, that they have some great riding roads. And they would be better tackled with my 250. It was still alot of fun on the Goldwing.

  15. A short ride to Jamieson yesterday and we caught up with our friends. And today we got to ride the Jamieson to Eldon rd. again. There was a lot of crap on the road but still fun to ride. And loved the ride from there into Melbourne. The weather was just great, the ride was great. It is hard being me.
