    Other details: I'm down to my last demerit point so won't be warp factor nine, thankfully most of this trip is fun at legal speeds. Can return via same route or I'm open to any suggestions that don't include spending too much time on the freeway.

    Probably a bit over 300kms for the day.

    Everyone welcome.

  9. What do you expect? The bike is at Peter Stevens (PoS) to be "Repaired".

    I'll be exceptionally happy when my insurance, taken out through PoS, expires so I don't have to put up with the same shit in the event of an accident.

  10. I hearby nominate Cowboy to sit out the front of this ride and set the pace. :LOL:

    I'll be quite happy to hide behind someone, if they feel like going quicker.

  11. Guys,

    Thought I'd let you know I was on the route that you have marked out today. There was roadwork in two spots:
    small amount on main street Noojee after you turn right at the intersection
    and about 2 * 1/2 km stretches near Tanjil South.
    The rest is pretty smooth.
    Enjoy. :D

  13. Just looking at that map of the route. A coupla suggestions. Before reaching Noojee, turn right and head south. A nice twisty bit of road. Comes out on the Noojee-Neerim Sth Road. Just after NS, you can turn left and head towards Walhalla. Gets you onto that road to Mt Baw-Baw from near Drouin Princes Hwy.

    Should be a good run. Weather is fine and 24 degs.

    Hey G -

    Was that you at Erica outside the pub today about 4 ish?

    I saw two blokes and a blonde fem there. I was on a red BMW. The people waved to me and I waved back. I was going towards the dam.

    How did the ride go???


    I arrived at 1pm at Walhalla, no sign of anyone. Spoke to a few riders there but they knew nix.

    Had a beer and waited till 1-45pm and then left. Saw a few bikes coming in. Was that you lot?

    I went for a spin through Haunted Hills - Thorpdale - Mirboo Nth - Boolarra - Churchill - Traralgon. Round trip 180k.

    Regards

    Brian
