{Melbourne, AUS} Alexandra Wanderings

After a week of incredible spring weather, things held together for the weekend...

Even the "getting to the start" was a ripper!






Enjoying the Acheron Way near Warburton






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...and a Katoom that didn't scuttle any bits today.





More tall trees for the hustling Huskies.
















Sweeping the ground for KTM-droppings...
"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. rool:rool:








The "Gravel-Travel-Barristas" brewing up superb, fresh Espressos on top of Dannys Pinch...BEAT THAT!!












Lots more pics from everybody else here:

Thanks for looking in, guys.
With weather and conditions like that it was hard *not* to get a few nice pics.

Great pics guys. Did the Acheron Way myself yesterday, one of my fave roads for the exact same reason, always quiet, stop in Marysville for a cuppa before the return trip home, did consider continuing on to Jamieson but unfortunately too busy with things at home today but just the best day for riding yesterday.

Love the espresso machine, can you tell me what its called and where to get one?

Cheers,
Neil.

Nice work Glitch O!
That weather is pissing me off though! I've spent a week (and a small fortune) taking a break and doing a family wedding in sunny Queensland and Melbourne turns that on!
Save some for me will you, I'll be home on the weekend

Looks like you've saved yourself a bit of a crappy week and make it back just in time for another cracker of a weekend!

Thanks for popping in and checking out the pics.
