Its mid winter in southern Australia. We should be ski ing the Victorian Alps rather than moto camping...... All that gear... not sure how or where its going to fit! We are all a bit slow after a night of beers and whiskey chases catching up on 6 months living and working. Chris is still recovering from his mega 1500km drive overnight 24 hours ago. It doesn't stop him meticulously organising his gear......... Chris bike all loaded up.....bar the extra fuel bladder totalling 20 litres between the 2 KTM's There's not much change out of midday before we're kitted up. The weak winter sunshine sees the 3 amigos head east out of town and and head into the hills.... Chris and Ben opt for Snow board jackets over body armour. We all have several layers of clothing on to keep out the biting cold. My Katarina Kato feels cumbersome and wants to fall into the corners.... We ascend quickly up to Trappers Gap saddle. There's snow on the side of the track and we haven't made the top yet. I'm happy to turn on the Oxford heater grips, but the stator struggles to keep the battery charged. I find i have to kick start the Kato if I leave them on too long, when we stop. I find the solution is to switch off the heater grips a good 10 minutes before a planned stop. We veer on to Holloway Log Rd and climb up to the snow line about 1200m ASL. Snow fell yesterday - a mere 4" .... just enough to keep us weekend warriors honest.... We reach a clear spot and stop to take in the view. Mt Bogong is now behind us to the west just above the trees. She's just under 2,000m ASL. We push on.... The track is in good order.... We descend into the Mitta Mitta Valley, and before know it we've climbed back up to the snowline. We have to ride a few kms along the Omeo Hwy to get past Mt Wills and avoid the locked seasonal gates. We come across snow on the road and stop to have a play.... We link on to the Knocker Track at a saddle with Mt Wills on our right. We Traverse the The Knocker and its snow clad track then decide to descend to Benambra via Burnside Track.
