Default 2016 Feb Frolic - Corryong

After 12 years since the last Openroader visit to Corryong, Colin felt it may just be safe to go back....

A small group departed from Healesville.




A clean ride through a largely empty Black Spur.

Turning onto Break O Day Road to sneak into Alexandra.



Alexandra.

Up the hill and onto Skyline Road.




Not much water left.



Colin likes to plan his rides and upload to the GPS on his Fireblade.

When he got to a fork in the road, anyone wanna guess which way he chose?




Yep.








Back on the bitumen.







Similar to the Black Spur, we were treated to a clean a largely traffic free run down to Whitfield.

Into Myrtle to grab a bite and collect some more Frolic-ers.

Famous Rog, Uncle Rod, Aprilia Bob, The Fugitive....



....and this fella who I will call the Bright Saboteur.





Famous Rog and some of the Myrtle crew had been teasing him about not being able to keep up with me as he is quite the competitive chap.

Now I have no proof but c'mon what are the chances 1km out of town...

Puncture fixt. And it was time to catch up with the group for the run into Corryong.




Happy Valley. Red River Rd. Lockharts Gap. Then main road into Corryong.

Settling in to the Courhouse Court Yard.




The Fugitive seems to have had a good day.




Aaah the yoof of today, never far from their mobile devices...

A few beers. Some great food and a night of laughs. Comfy beds in big en-suite rooms.

Next thing it was Sunday.










We followed the river to Walwa then a run over the Granya Gap.


Not to worry, it's a Ducati....you call that (gear shift issues)....character....




In Tallangatta, the Fugitive puts on a panto for Big Rob explaining how the rear sub frame of the 1200GS broke on the ride to Texas....
