    Some of those place names are familiar. Certainly went to Musselroe Bay. Spent most of the time on dirt - some of it open gravel roads but also a fair bit of tougher stuff.

    Based out of Branxholme for several days, also Bicheno and Miena.

    Spent quite a few evenings here at the Imperial Hotel in Branxholm. New publican (Bill bought the place 5 days before we arrived) is bike friendly and a thoroughly nice guy

    Great but very muddy (got to change those tyres) run along Captains Creek Road and a loop around Pauls Lane Dixon’s Creek. 67F47B3D-C57E-4095-B280-398CB805A814.jpeg

    Captains Creek is notorious for that...and after all the rain we've had out east last night, no surprise. Might've seen some water at Wombelano Falls then!
    How was that hill on Pauls Ln.? Still remember ploughing down that thing sideways on the Strom with a mounting pile of mud building ahead of me :lol:

    “How was that hill on Paul’s Ln.?”

    If you’re talking about the hill on PFF Track, dang that thing is steep and slippery! I’ve got Mitas E07 back and front and the front is way past it’s wear limits - I seriously struggled through that section

    Loved the run up the Old Toolangi-Dixon’s Creek Road 82335C46-F004-456E-BD7E-E2FADCF06D59.jpeg

    That's a nice corner there with good views across the Yarra Valley.
    Not the PFF, just the little hill near the Toolangi Vineyards. It had the "no-thru" signs on it for years and coming from the north the climb was a bit rocky but fine, the drop on the other side had about 2-3" of loose, powdery earth on top which had gotten saturated with rain and turned into a sloppy snot you could barely stand up in. One of the times the bike took me for a ride. :-)

    There were a lot of signs that said ‘No Through Road’ or 4WD Only. I just ignored them and went exploring E5AD2AB3-5915-4D06-99B0-77EEBEDAF886.jpeg

    Couple of days ride in the south west and west of Melbourne. Brisbane Ranges, Lerderderg forest and others. Happy to share GPX.

    Imho there are very few replacements of the Terra currently available. The Husqy 701 is too expensive and teh standard tank is too small. The AJP and CCM are also a lot more expensive than the Terra was. The Himalayan is a lot less powerfull. The 790Adv isn't available yet, nor is the Yamaha T7.
    The only thing that comes close in my opinion is the SWM Superdual.

    i agree, but if new KTM 790 adventure weight is going down 200kg will be a nice option.

    oh man, i miss the hills and the bush so much. Ducked out for a few days into the Texas hill country which was nice. Found a place (Enchanted rock) that looked a bit like there just doesn't smell right and all dirt roads seem to be private property. The few public ones were still impassable from the massive flooding a few weeks earlier. 44872057_2277053785700187_8411431670959308800_n.jpg 44964378_1970128333068735_6116204893188390912_n.jpg 45061026_1027149710826223_3758954643019792384_n.jpg

    Hi lads....Just a quick note to share with people who understand (pointless otherwise)...Just fell in love with my bike again. Hadn't ridden off road for a while . Just returned from a thought investing solo trip to Flinders Ranges in Sth Oz.
    Loaded to the gills ... water (have a survival straw but then again you need to find water to use it!!) ,extra fuel , food etc. Mitas EO-9 on rear and Continental enduro front.
    The only issue is the 500km tar to get there .
    Even loaded up had no issues ,power aplenty, grip to cry for given the circumstances.

    Intentions next trip...Take my usual pillow (dont care about weight for that idea!!!:D)
    May invest in upgraded suspension,at least rear
    Lighter tent and lighter air mattress (yeah ,I know I am)
    Dont forget coffee, beanie, and thongs (flip flops for US types)..
    Water proof my accessory lights (rained for whole 500km outbound)
    Get smaller gas burner
    More fuel

    But otherwise as you will all agree ..theres something that develops inside oneself and so worth the aching muscles.
    BTW thanks to all with ongoing helpful hints on this site.
