Open Road Tourers to Harrow.
 
This was a great weekender. Leaving Tullamarine at 9 am for Harrow (via the Grampians) in Western Victoria.

Zoom Zoom, first stop Malmsbury. And as you can see, there was a terrible drought! Until Saturday morning.

The bikes waiting patiently for the rain to abate.

The further west we travelled the sunnier it was.

Quick stop in Balmoral before heading into Harrow.

Made it. Big Rob making the place look like it was built for Hobbits.

A cosy little place actually!

And if you ever heard an 1190 EBR with a straight exhaust, then you'd understand completely this T shirt.

So after a hearty dinner, we set off to explore the tiny Township.

Only 1 horsepower, pretty bloody useless really!

Well it's not a Bills horse trough, old enough though!

Everything was closed.

I think this cart is still waiting for passengers.

I thoughtfully started to mix my drinks. Seemed ok at the time!

A quick tour of the breakfast dining area.

Then it was lights out for me.

We went home via the Grampians, no pics though as we were travelling at the speed limit and only stopped for food and fuel.

Morning Tea at Stawell.

Proposed Lunch at Talbot, but the cafe was shut!

Then on to Woodend for a feast, before heading home.

Thanks to Colin from the Open Road Tourers for leading the ride. :clap:

Been to harrow once, was on L plates riding a H100 Honda two stroke.
Don't think it has changed at all.
