It was a chilly and some what damp Sunday morning when a dozen or so brave souls braved the elements to go for a ride into the hills up Yea way.

 

Wez stepped forward to go backward and be the tail end Charlie and he managed to keep the group nice and tidy thus reducing the need to employ too many corner markers.

 

For something different we headed out towards Whittlesea to use the roads less travelled where we stopped for the much-needed coffee fix and the odd gasper.

 

The back road from Whittlesea up through Flowerdale to Yea is great fun and the skilled riders managed to keep off the green moss growing between the tyre tracks and arrived safely at the lunch destination The Grand Central Hotel.

 

The publican gave us a warm welcome and even had an open fire crackling away in the lounge. Even so we preferred to take over the outdoor beer garden and made our camp out there.

 

After a couple of drinks our meals started to come out with the roast of the day a popular choice. The chef even brought out a separate plate with extra crackling. Everyone agreed they really enjoyed lunch and I’m sure we will get back there again perhaps in the better weather.

 

Jon Flynn surprised us as he popped his head in to say Hi to the gang as he was traveling back from Mansfield. Soon it was time to head home and the group dispersed off into the drizzle. It was great to see Ken out on that beast of a Fatboy he rides getting amongst the wet weather riding.

 

Any day out on a Harley with DanHOG is great fun and this was no exception.

 

Can’t wait to the next one.

 

See you on the road
