LOTS of colour and bloom in the bush above Noojee.
Mt.Tooronga Firetower Track






West Gippsland....from above.







This was an overnight photo-ride.... photos first.... riding second!

Or third, or fourth...or if the beers or Harley-boyz or breathtaking views, snakes or 200k's of corrugations and rocks wouldn't get in the way.






And who would've thought that this....






would start its life (~250km upstream) as THAT:











Yeah, it took some digging to find the start of the Yarra River.


Thanks MEFO Explorer front hoop to not land me on my arse in the attempt.





Yo, it was quiet up there...




It was even quieter at the McAdams Gap Hideaway (pub/ accom) which I dearly wanted to check out, leaving a couple of messages through the week at the phone numbers shown here:

The steep, washed-out track finished with this...





Hmmm....shortly after a 2-up BM800GS? cruised past the other way.....





"You'll have a look at Mt. Matlock firetower...and I'll wait for you in Matlock, at the site of the Old Town, ok?"

Sure!

Must've missed out on that deliciously loose and spongy climb on freshly graded + uprooted "rockery" then.

Same fire warden by the looks of that ute though...

More boots ?...under that coat of dust?










Surprise: some quite lengthy sealed sections north of Woods Point and along Gaffneys Creek/ A1 Mine/ 10Mile....and all sealed to the Kevington Pub from Jamieson.
Which accounted for a group of "Crusaders MCC" Hogleys.

And boy, did they cop a serve from some Kiwi....
before "hitting back".
The "ding-dong" and laughs went into the night....

Without letting too much out of the deck conversation I have to say that if that guys sister had not been to tall for me it might have been all on.
