My mate & his missus and me and mine decided to do a bit of a mystery tour around South Gippland yesterday. It was a bright sunny day, but the wind and the additional gusts were going to prove tiresome. Mate is on a GTR1400 and me on a VFR800, both pretty heavy faired bikes, so thought the wind would be OK. It never pushed either of us more than a metre sideways. We headed down to the Sth Gippland Hwy, through Cranbourne down to the Bass Hwy and to the Phillip Island turnoff where we went left and had our first leg stretch and a coke at Kilcunda. We cruised to Wonthaggi with the view of the big waves and the wind turbines off to the right. At Wonthaggi we headed out to Cape Patterson. The coast road from Cape Patterson to Inverloch is a beautiful stretch of open twisties for about 12 Km (Yellow advisory signs 65kmh down to 30kmh) almost no traffic too. We had lunch at Inverloch watching the ape hangers and other assorted Harleys roaring up and down the street, then saddled up and on to Leongatha. Some great stretches of straight road to open up on if you're so inclined along the Bass Hwy there. From Leongatha we rejoined the Sth Gippland Hwy for the return. There is some beautiful scenery in this neck of the woods and the road is as a country highway used to be... ups and downs and alot of bends not like the sanitised freeway alternatives. Speaking of which after just 50 km we reached Lang Lang and the two lane highway, back through Cranbourne for a fuel top up and the final ride home for a well earned espresso. @300Km What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon with friends.
