Mint and Jam, 46 High St, Yea???  https://goo.gl/maps/qKvXpqmbJa32

Bit early for us, our earliest departure is 9:30am, that puts us in Yea around 10:30am, or 9:30am on the ST's clock (I have not changed it since day-light savings), but that might not help much.

Ask Denis to take a couple of plugs leads off his ST to slow him down a bit.

If you have your mobile in the "ON" mode, I'll call around 15 minutes before Yea, you can order a couple of mugs of skinny cappuccino - Helen will pay you.

Hi all, wanted to come along just to annoy everyone. Umming and arrring for the last couple of weeks, but I am still trying to finish the project, Morry.
Anyways, need to work tomorrow as we have some pondage getting dredged, and they asked for Number 1 sweeper operator to attend, he couldn't, so it's me. Positive out of it is more bikkies for Mackay.

Enjoy all, have a great time and not too many reds........... :-((( :wht11

Hi All,
       What a fantastic weekend of riding on our Omeo RTE in glorious Victoria.
No rain, plenty of sunshine, a bit of fog, loads of twisties & sweepers, some new seal bits, some frost & ice in a couple of damp corners near the summit of Mt Buffalo, also ice on a steep incline nr the summit of Mt Hotham and snow lying in a couple of shaded areas alongside the road.
Not to mention the after ride conversations & laughter over beer, wines and great food.
Plus the regular stops for delicious cafe food & coffees along the way, would do it all again in a heartbeat. Brilliant
A special thank you to Sir Michael for making it all happen.
For those that couldn't make it this time - folks, you missed a beauty!!.
See you all next time
Cheers
Neil & Val
Nand V

Here's a few more pics from my camera roll.

Met up with Neil & Val and Denis Diane at Yea, nice little coffee stop, the Mint & Jam, better coffee than the either of the bakeries.  Then a quick sprint through Mansfield, Tolmie (gotta love them twisties) and lunch at Whitfield.



Overnight at Bright, beers and pizza at the brewery, Mount Buffalo Saturday AM and then over the top of Mount Hotham (some slippery, icy moments in the shadows of CRB Hill), and onto Omeo for a late lunch at the Bakery.

Checked into the Hilltop, the oldies and Helen had a nanna nap, I went for a walk around town.  Met up in the bar around 6:00pm, found Doggy and Lar Lah and then into the dinning room. 

Much discussion and words of advice to Lar Lah who was riding home to Traralgon (with Doggy) after dinner.  Lar Lah's unfaired, sans heated grips Honda (NTX?) would've been challenging in the sub-zero temps expected.  I suppose she made it, at least we didn't read about them in the news papers.

Some dinner pics:




Sunday AM, group bike pic outside the Golden Age:





Home via Bruthen (brief stop) and Maffra (good reliable lunch at the Latitude café in the main street), and arrived home at 6:00pm.

Thanks to all for attending, the good company, the laughs, Neil's jokes (which I can't repeat) and the overall good time.

Someone photoshop me in....Buggar I missed it,, Next one,,, Assume great time was had.. :thumb :wht11


Nigel was missed, but I did feel a spiritual presence, kept looking over my shoulder, but not until I got the pics from the photo shop did I realise this .......



Mmmmm ......... I can see a Where's Wally thread starting.

Cheers,  Williamson (AKA Michael)
