When The Sun Shines On Walhalla

If you're living in a city...there could be worse places than that, eh?

Getting to the meet... to go for a ride!





Melbourne's Eastern Suburbs, as far as the eye can see.









There's nothing like a sparkling Sunday morning






New Maccas....in NOOJEE???





Near Icey Creek...told you it's a sparkler









After the slippery, wet + green BawBaw Rd., it's nice to pop into the sun on the South Face Rd.





Views into the Latrobe Valley...and hills beyond.





Nice mix of bikes, too.














The burgers from the little General Store are still as humungous as ever !!



"I wanna be a Givi when I grow up".... Rob's TinyBox on the 250 Honda.
Thanks for popping it at the Walhalla lunch, mate. Good to see your face again. :-)







Some rutted white clay on the way back.







Found it!







A huge silver apron...the Moondarra overflow

Peace and quiet on the country lanes with the bustling freeway somewhere to the south, enjoying the deep-green paddocks, Mt. BawBaw in the back, rolling hills, the laughter of a pack of Kookaburras....















Sweet as!!







Barely yet.....but a new crop is rearing its head.








Superb lighting out the back of Gembrook
















You pick what you like best....I'll just chuck 'em all on here.





















Had enough now, let's go!













Not bad, them little country lanes










Melbourne's Market Gardens country.







What a mightly, old bugger!













...and what a great lap on a glorious day!!






...and that's pretty good , too! Make that just about an even split for the KLR and the Strom.







And that makes it a Perfecta of the Trifecta...3 magnificent weekends in a row in Melbourne... 3 sweet rides in a row, YEEHAA!!
Yet another big Thanks to all who came along or met up along the way, your company makes it even more enjoyable.




More pics and bits from everyone else, here.

Thanks for popping in and having a look!
Most likely poking around "the North" next weekend.

Nice work Glitch you have a good eye for making the everyday stuff look interesting with your camera lense.
Scenery isn't just that blurry green stuff beside the road.
I'll eventually get through that part of the world one day hopefully soon.

Guess, it depends on what one WANTS to see.
"Blurred -Green" has never quite been my colour, even less so nowadays.
Thanks for looking in...and leaving a note.
