It wasn't until I got home..............had the bike parked outside the pub...........parked with the back wheel against the curb.............left the pub..............and immediately went left........not across the street to the far lane............LEFT!! Didn't take long for me to figure out why all the cars were coming straight at me!!

Simple Droparotter ... You were on the A1 from Victoria in the Myora National Forest Reserve.
