Default Glitch and K1W1 head off together armed only with cameras.

Two middle aged blokes
Two marginally unsuitable bikes
A couple of hundred km of Victoria's best dusty January roads
A kiwi with attitude
Camping at a pub surrounded by Harley owners
A brand new camera
What could possibly go wrong?

You will have to wait an see but as they say in the fairy tales all good stories start at a Service Station

Hope you nursed the Tiger home without checking the scenery close-up on that flat rear.

The crop of pics is turning out ok after the first skim-through.
Some neat shots in that lot.


As for getting those 10kg of dust+rocks outta the seata- ma-pants
(and assorted body-cavities)....

The first issue was after coffee in Noojee (where two highly inconsiderate KTM two stroke owners had taken the only available outdoor shade and were not prepared to give it up for older and eminently wiser ADV riders). We got to a fork in Loch Valley Road. Glitch wanted to go right but I wanted to go go right so we agreed to disagree and go right. It turned on that right was the right choice so at least I know I was right.

So where were we.

Okay. Here is Glitch not displaying true ADV spirit and taking the concrete bridge option



when as you can see there is a perfectly suitable ADV style bridge immediately to his right



Charlie and Ewan would have had their film crew get them across that why didn't Glitch try?

I'll let Glitch tell you about this location but here is the photo I went back to take



This is what we saw when we did not make it to the Mt Toorongo Fire Tower (yes I know wimps but I think Glitch demonstrated that on the previous bridge)



Heading towards Woods Point just after we passed a couple going the other way two up on a GS. Turns out the couple were Austrian and the GS was a rental and shortly after we passed them the rear tyre was ripped apart and guess what. No way to fix it. I believe that they got a ride to Marysville or Warburton in a 4WD



Here is Glitch about to not get to the MaAdams Gap Hotel because the gate was locked shut



The view generally north and east from the top of the hill at Matlock



and a road heading in the general direction of Walhalla that we were not allowed to ride down



after not getting food at The Commercial at Woods Point "you are one hour and five minutes late for lunch!" Glitch got to explain a thin Strom to a V-strom owner and his son.



Arty black and white using the new Acros film simulation after I stopped to discover my hydration pack would not hold water any longer



Glitch riding through the gap near the A1 mine site where the road was not sealed. Shot 10 of an 11 frame burst and still in focus.



Checking into the Kevington Hilton with the chef who did not know what was was going to be on the menu in about 90 minutes



where we could not get a riverside spot because of some inconsiderate Cruiser types (who turned out to be a fantastic bunch but as they say what goes on on the deck of the Kevington Hilton after closing stays on the deck of the Kevington Hilton so you will never know).



I did not have a tent



but as we checked in Glitch said something to the effect of "this is what Doug would do" and purchased some emergency pre dinner supplies so we did not go thirsty



What till tomorrow....
