Off to Mitta Mitta... The day before....


Here it is the day before my big ride. Tomorrow I am heading off to Mitta Mitta in Victoria. I am going to the Australian Horizons Unlimited Travellers Meeting...

Three of us are going. Lilly my youngest daughter on the back with me. This is her first big road trip. When I asked her to come with me she replied ..." yes ...Yes...YEs...YES!" Helge from Norway on a R80 G/S that he bought here. This bike has turned out to have been a real dog and he has spent most of his time here doing it up. He was last here in 2006 on his R80 G/S that he shipped over from Norway ....

We plan to head down through the Nasho. Then up Lady Mac pass. Through to the HoHum, Hume Highway. Turn off just as you get into Goulburn and travel down the east side of Lake George and past Lake Bathurst. Into Queenbeyan. Then down to the Snowies. We may camp the first night at Geehi Hut.

Thursday through to Tom Groggin, through Khancoban, Through to Corryong, Bullioh and then north up to Bethanga to stay the night with Charlie Smith (AirBear)

Friday it is south down through Omeo and to the pub at Mitta Mitta where we pitch the tent out the back. Have a great time hearing about other people rides around the world and then head for home on Sunday. Sunday will be straight up the HoHum Highway as Helge wants to be in Sydney by Monday.

I know that once on the trip time will accelerate faster than normal and it will all be soon over and back to the grind of daily life.

Last time I rode interstate was in 1999 when I rode my Virago outfit to Queensland.

Bike is all packed ready to go....





Back next week with full ride report and heaps of photos....
