Gippsland riders.

I see threads from riders in other areas setting up threads to contact local area riders. Just wondering if any other Gippsland riders are keen on the idea. might help each other getting out more or just sharing local info.
Cheers.

G'day,

I'm in Langwarrin and work shift work so not always available on the weekends.
Enjoy overnight rides but limited in experience on hard stuff. However in saying that I am heading off tomorrow (Thur 1 Mar) for an overnight ride. Just doing my mapping, Possibly just up to Mount Howitt and home via Wahalla. Still working this out. Ride a 1200 GSA. Gippsland is only around the corner and down the road.
PM me for further.

Maffra

Hi,

I'm in Maffra; I'm definitely one of the least experienced riders in these here parts, but trying to get myself competent slowly. Sounds like a good idea to get this thread going.

Cheers
Stuart

Jingellic this weekend?

There is a group of about 8 of us leaving on Friday morning from Trafalgar to go up to the Jingellic weekend.

If any one is interested in joining us PM me.

Route up is GS friendly and via the Freestone Creek road to Dargo then across to Omeo and we are staying Friday night at the camp grounds near the Blue Duck. Cabins can also be booked at the Blue Duck.

Marcus

G'day!
I'm in Mirboo North. This is a good idea. Well done. I work away on dodgy rosters, which is a bit of a bummer, but has it's good bits. Always worth contacting for the possibility of a ride....
Bloody! I was planning on slipping down to Trafalgar for a bit of good tucker this weekend, too..and maybe finally meet up with Marcus, and talk Beemerrs an Guzzi's. It'll happen.

From Traralgon area and very keen for more long distance adv stuff.

Just in the process of picking up a set up DR650. Other rides are Gas Gas EC 450 and Wee Strom. So should have all important bases covered now.

Super keen to start exploring Eastern Victoria...ie, Mckillops Bridge, Errinundra, Corajingalong Nat Park, etc etc.

Anyhoooo Keep safe everybody.
