Default Re: Suzuki-Aus...2019 Licola Overnighter

A couple of quick maps:


Woods Point area.
Johnson Hill Track includes 2 crossings of the Goulburn River. Coming from Woods Point, the first one is the longer and deeper one with a steep-ish ~10m clay/ loam exit. https://isn.page.link/DNK2


Bruntons Bridge track comes off the Walhalla-Cowwarr Rd. and is a backway into Walhalla.
https://isn.page.link/r5gG
Nearly lost one of the DR-guys going over the edge here.
The partially restored (for pedestrians) girder-bridge across the Thomson River can be used (discreetly) by motorbikes which fit through the opening. The Strom just made it (no panniers).

Or ford the river. The crossing itself is ok, the exit on the northern bank short and steep which makes for some deep troughs dug up by 4WDs... only 6ft from "dry land".
Bruntons Bridge picnic area/ swimming holes etc can be reached from Walhalla via a carefully driven 2WD.

Goulburn crossing #2 on the Johnson Hill Track








Mt. Selma wasn't the must fun, the views blanketed out by the grey skies and much of it rocky and rutted, the bush bone-dry.

Dipping down South Rd. towards Jamieson-Licola Rd.







Where's the bloody road in all this dust...?







See ya in Licola..




Dancing-the-twisties towards a cold beer













Arghh!! Mr. Whoopee-Cushion lost some air!






Great place, this Licola Wilderness Village

Awesome job, Chief!!

Some of the Suzuki Australia crew stewing over the Sunday ahead.





Fording the Thomson at Bruntons Bridge (see map/ info above).
So far, so good....




A split-second away from the dive...






More caution here...









Bruntons Bridge....what a cracker of a spot!





Little Jimny going for a dip...








...and the Boss going for a splash.
Not just selling bikes, but can damn well ride 'em, too.









With one DRZ waterlogged and doggedly refusing-to-play, a DR to fix and straighten out after an over-the-edge tumble on the descent to the crossing and lunch waiting in Walhalla before a long way home ahead for most, the rest decided to take the bridge instead.

Maybe time for all to sprout their new jackets

Bruntons Bridge Rd. into Walhalla























The single most positive aspect of the entire weekend simply HAD to be the near total lack of mobile phone-coverage, REGARDLESS of carrier !!
Just imagine...!!!




....and on the ball to the last minute, the Suzuki crew dug into their emergency fuel reserves to make sure no one runs dry on the way home.







To wrap it up short and sweet it's back to the start and the best 100bux I've spent in a long time:





That was 100%, Suzuki Australia....and then some

This little video of Licola weekend posted by Suzki Aust on facebook. The dishrack and pilot make several appearances.
