Great report Stjepan. Good to see you guys got home without problems. Pity you didn't take the Mansfield road, it was a great ride. I also went down from Alexandra to Healesvile through the Black Spur. The bushfire damage is quite considerable but the road itself is pretty much perfect. You get quite a different perspective though as without the foliage you can now see right through to areas you couldn't before. With the Kinglake roads now being reopened too, we should organise a local ride out there in the next few weeks or so.
I couldn't send you a private message as website requires me to have more than 8 posts prior to be able to send messages. (I had 7
I am very keen to go out and do some short trips before starts raining. I hope we still have about one and a half months before bad weather.
I also believe there are people in Melbourne area here wishing to do the same, so everyone is welcomed.
Great weekend,good location.good ride out to the dam and the tower,Dave led three of us back on a more adventuresses track,wet and grinning we arrived back at base.
Thanks Dave and all,already looking forward to next year.
Jan and I had a fantastic time, flew to Melbourne and rode to Barnsdale then up the Omeo Highway to Mitta Mitta, dirt road was pretty good, except when we passed the logging truck which reduced visabilty to nill, beautifull country so different to Qld. Met some great people listened to some awe inspiring stories as well. Thanks to Ken who gave us a great tour back to Melbourne via Beechworth, where we had lunch at the famous bakery, then on to Brown Bros. winery where Jan tasted and then promply bought a case of what she just had. (something about being not sure, and would need to drink a case before she new if it was any good.) (and I got a serve for having 2 pies at the bakery !) Ken then took us thru the fire ravaged areas, it was raining and cold at the time so it felt a little odd. Now to top off the great weekend we had the pleasure of Kens hospitality when he offered us a bed for the night, a big Thanks Mate and thank you to everybody else for there kindness.
Well im back in Brisbane and this is a bit late entering but I can say that Im so glad some of that LIQUID SUNSHINE we have be having in Queensland followed me to Mitta Mitta ,as It was very needed down there. My tent auctually had a new branch of the mitta mitta river devellop under and through it on saturday night. what a shame Dave canoe guy stuffed his knee during a wild romp with female friend and forgot-found too hard to bring some canoes as we could have made history and been the first to ride the pub rapids,Being the first person to arrive this year ,I must admit I did feel a bit of a dill, being two days early and all.But after meeting the publican and staff at the mitta pub and a chat I soon felt that these are my kind of people. genuine no bullshit just really likeable people. Just put ya tent up behind the pub anywhere you like.And it was awsome back there , nice stream running, press button BBQs under cover ,lights,Gazzebo, Mitta Mitta has it all for this kind of meeting .Then I proceded to wear the chicken strips off the XJR1300 big time around the general area and up to falls creek froorn the next cuppla days. I want to come back here one day early winter on the KLR with heated grips and ride this stuff and check out the kosoiusko huts
I FOUND A PAIR OF SPECTACLES ON THE GROUND AT THE BACK OF THE PUB,THEY ARE IN A CASE AND LOOK EXPENSIVE, SO PM ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO POST THEM ON
oh yeah if you want stubbie holders i ended up with leftovers i can post them as well
