What a beautiful country Australia is. Like someone said on the reply above, no reason or excuse to get out of the scooter when you have such nice view and roads. It makes you want to keep riding for days. Thanks for sharing.

Steelbytes,

Thank you for those stunning photos.

I am sitting here looking out the window at a Minnesota Winter
with snow falling and wind that chills you. Your stuff keeps
me uplifted for Spring and back on the scooter trail.

Just stunning, and beautifully photographed.

The shot of the logging truck has captured the terror of being born down upon by a behemoth on a narrow little road, it's incredible.

Are you able to caption the phots with their locations?

I took a video of one of the trucks (was a convoy of 4 doubles). It's on my Instagram.

Here's a map of the route. Do you have a particular photo you're curious about? Or just all in general? (Hey jess, any chance of adding previews of attached pics when editing?)

Thank you for the route map. You really went far and away up into the hills, it must have been lovely.

In particular I was wondering where the bridge is, and the which dirt road the truck was on, maybe somewhere near Jingellic?

the bridge was crossing the Goulburn River between Alexandra and Acheron https://www.google.com/maps/@-37.2391757,145.7088833,15z

the trucks were on the road to Olsens Lookout https://www.google.com/maps/@-36.360259,148.2238511,15z

although the grey is really good at hiding a little dirt, this is a common look after a day trip

A few minutes from today's ride.

(Sorry about the picture quality, my crap old clone of a gopro has shite image stabilisation that can't cope with the wobble from being on the end of the ram ball mount. And then uploading to youtube made it worse. f.)

Steelbytes,

Thanks, I enjoyed your great video. It is interesting to see the different
foliage and trees on the side of the road in your region.

Everywhere has the same green, but this is not Kansas Dorthy.

How's the Vespa, and you? Hope you're both uninjured.

I'll have a close look tomorrow but didn't notice anything apart from obviously having to reposition my mirror and clear an engine light which was just the abs complaining.

And me? Didn't even swear. If you listen in the video you can hear me say "bound to happen" right before i lift the bike. But i am upset that i forgot to take a photo
