Wasn't that one of your rides? Posted on ADV/ST etc?
Seem to remember somewhere muddy around Blacksands/ Portas Rd./ Mt. Bride area.
There was a guy 2-up on a TDM850 on road-hoops hosing just about everyone else...a couple of guys dumped it in a long mud-puddle down some red-clay valley-track.
Or was that the Vic Stromers ride?

Will never forget the collective groan at the sight of that bombed-out downhill stretch of Ure Rd. towards Shepherds Creek, a dozen Stroms going everywhere dodging the scattered bush while trying to find some alternative.
And that was 3k's after that Ure Rd. mud-tub.

Glorious stuff.

No that was a Crusty ride. It may have even been for the "old people motorcycle club"
The lookout is that one beside the road at Arawata, it looks south towards Leongatha. Crusty lead us on a merry dance that day we ended up on some strange dirt roads at the back of Neerim or Neerim South or Neerim East that I have never been able to find again.
Those V-Strom rides were fun though. We scared a few people on those weekends.

The Parks Vic people locked the gates soon after that day. Wonder why?
Doug and I and I think somebody else (you?) test rode that section the week before and as soon as we got to the bottom we both had stupid big grins (Dougs may have been a grimace but he carried it off well if it was) and I decided instantly that come hell or high water the ride was going down there.
