A foggy climb into the Dandenongs.



Once on top, the sun broke through.



A few slips n slides for everyone chasing the first dirt of the day.



Good thing Williamson had decided not to join us, most embarrassing to have to turn back…



Waiting, waiting….



Arty.



Ahhh, the serenity.



Taken from here.



And of course, there’s always one who doesn’t want to walk…



Waiting for the dust to settle.



I led Fearless on a merry chase along the skyline road to lunch.



Hmmm, so the boss is buying a BMW….



Fantastic spot for picnic lunch. Was brilliant watching the wedge tail eagles soar.



Post Boone Doon, we cut back towards Alexandra.



Glitch located another fantastic cut through.



Which led us to this.



Fuzzy in da lead.



Final stop at Yea, where we ran into a couple of Triumph buddies.

Trip distance. 420km for me

Nice shots there, guys


A few more from this corner.

Still on the Acheron Way....love it when there isn't another soul (or 4WD) around.




Tim and the fat-cheeked DR finding their dirt feet again after a long break.




Getting dizzy at the sight of that





Backroads to Marysville...Fuzz and the Katoom that didn't scuttle any bits today.





More tall trees for the hustling Huskies.
















Doug on the lookout for random Katoom bits.
"Naw, mate...haven't seen a swingarm"





A chance-meet at Eildon Dam...love the colour of that Trump.





Eildon Pondage, before the twisties to Mt. Pininger





"Going to Bonnie Doon"....the nice way




L to R: Hats off to Mt. Sterling and Mt. Buller





Someone pinched the sign from "Dannys Pinch", the fabulous lookout above Peppin Point....but they couldn't take the vistas.








Eivind + Aaron, the "Gravel-Travel-Barristas" brewing up superb, fresh Espressos on top of Dannys Pinch...BEAT THAT, SUCKA!!












Some of Goodie's pics


One of each marque and colour...




Eildon Dam















(Make up your own caption for the final shot!!)

Great to have had you guys coming along and even better to see you've enjoyed the day.
Good cruizin out there ...with that sensational weather right from the start.
The Espresso up on the lookout was the dot-on-the-i

As a bonus there were yet another few little roads and places new to me... gotta go again for some more we zipped past.

See you all on the next one.
