21 May - South Gippsland
Our glorious autumn weather continues and is currently setting 'all time' weather records for this time of the year. Knowing that some awful weather is just around the corner provided enough motivation to fire up the VT750 and head to South Gippsland over the Strzeleckis. First stop was Yarram to stock up the freezer with some goodies from the Yarram Bakery, and a fuel stop for the bike.
Then, west along the South Gippsland Highway, past the wind generators at Toora and then on to Meeniyan before turning back into the hills and towards home via Boolarra and Morwell.
One sign of the unusually warm weather is that the bike is now totally covered in dead bugs and it looks like I'll have quite a cleaning job to do tomorrow. Can't believe we're only a week or so from the start of winter and I was actually a bit too warm in the thermals.
Total Distance 220km
