A little further and later, at the Western Explorer Road turnoff. Will we, or won't we? Nah, not this little duck.

In the right conditions, YOU wouldn't have an issue with the ST on the WE....but 90k's of Tassie's WestCoast can throw up a LOT of surprises at any time. Weather-blitzes are the worst....fog and rain and cold within a couple of minutes of popping out of the sunshine.
Seen a guy on a ZX9 near the intersection in the pics, came from Strahan, packed dacks and all on his super-grippy Superbike-Pirelli-slicks...he couldn't get out of there quick enough while trying not to soil his Dainese clown-suit. :)
If it all comes together it's a walk in the park though....still no mobile-signal at all for about 60k's.

Well if the truth be told, it was probably more Phil pushing back on the WE, he doesn't take the Harley outfit (it is pretty) on gravel.

Next stop was the Edge of the World ...

Whilst we were playing tourist, taking pics, walking boardwalks, two more ST's rolled in, Denis & Diane (maroon ST1100) and Neil & Val (silver ST1300)

And just to prove Pete correct, this quartet had just come up the WE - not bad for a coupla mid 70's pair on road bikes. But very seasoned motorcycle tourers, so easy peasy for them.

And of course a group pic with the VIC OzSTOC flag.

And a pic I prepared earlier at Couta Rocks
