I took another Wednesday off work to ride another of my favourite drives when I had my cage. Having done Baw Baw, and South Gippsland earlier this month, today I decided to go to Walhalla for lunch. This is by far one of my favourite day trips from Melbourne, and anyone who has not done this ride before, I highly recommend it. Forecast for today: 29 overcast, perfect! I'm not a fan of the sun, much prefer an overcast day, not too warm, not too cold. Here's todays route: http://goo.gl/maps/BBuuC Stringing together some of Victoria's best motorcycling roads, source: AMA Yarra Junction to Noojee Twisties: Med - Fast Surface: Logging trucks means few potholes here and there, but can be spotted easily Scenery: Boring forest Noojee to Willowgrove Turnoff Twisties: Med Surface: Excellent and grippy Scenery: Climbing forest, no views Willowgrove Road Twisties: Slow - Med Surface: Few potholes from logging trucks but tarmac is relatively new, narrowness of road and no centre line means oncoming trucks are a concern Scenery: Scenic forest Moe Then into Moe for fuel, and cash from ATM. There is 91 and 98 available from the Shell coming in from Willowgrove Road on the edge of town. Moe to Erica Twisties: Med - Fast Surface: Excellent Scenery: Boring forest Thomsom Dam Twisties: Slow - Med Surface: Excellent, if not for the leaves flying around everywhere, on a leave-less day this is a premium twisty section, VERY wide lanes, and no traffic Scenery: The Dam offers amazing views Beware of: The dam flies, bugs and crap at the dam, which swarm all over your helmet, hide inside, and pop up on the inside of your visor in front of your eye when your in the middle of an awesome bend and scares the shit out of you. Interesting fact: Thomsom Dam supplies almost all of Melbourne's water, and is linked to the Upper Yarra Reservoir at Reefton by a long long tunnel under Mt Baw Baw!
