17 February - Warburton and Yarra Valley

Met Zane this morning in Morwell for a ride to Warburton. The forecast was for a warm and fine day and that's how it turned out. We turned off the highway at Nilma to take the road through Neerim, Powelltown and Yarra Junction. The day attracted many other riders including some larger groups. Observing some other riders provides a great understanding of the motorcycle accident statistics. In the hills approaching Powelltown we were stuck behind a couple of slow cars and as it was double lines all the way we decided to wait to pass them. Not so with a large group of BMW riders coming up behind us who seemed quite happy to cross double lines and go around blind corners on the wrong side of the road. Fortunately, most other riders seemed to be content to take it easy and enjoy the day and the scenery. Had lunch at our usual haunt (Three Sugars - excellent again!) and then continued on to take a look at the Upper Yarra Reservoir about 25 km away. After a leg stretch and a few photos here we returned to Warburton for fuel for Zane's KLX before retracing our steps home. Another great day.

Total Distance 327 km.
