It's quite a nice ride huh...it'd be great with a few more
Be prepared, the next step up is +50km worth of awesomenessness!

Yeah, cool!
This weekend is a scorcher, the road melts a bit on a few corners at Reefton, so not advisable.
Maybe next Sunday?
Put your hands up ladies and gents. Give me your approximate location and I'll tee-up a meeting point.
Here's my two ride proposals:
1. Emerald-Gembrook-Warburton-Reefton - ZX6r2013AU can confirm it's a pretty sweet ride. About 90kms one way. Approx 9am start.
2. Emerald-Gembrook-Warburton-Reefton-Marysville-Eildon-Jamieson
A more adventurous ride with the best road I have ridden between Eildon & Jamieson. Approx 230kms one way. I'd push for 7am or 8am start.

Let me know what you all think.
Cheers,
corkoli.

depending on the weather corkoli im down for sunday week. most likely option 1, or we could do the whole loop and go Emerald-Gembrook-Warburton-Reefton-Marysville-Healsville-back to Launching Place-Gembrook AGAIN!

Hi ymad,
The road has been resurfaced for a big section between the Cumberland Junction and the Lake Mountain turn-off. It's pretty loose stuff & tricky going. The Black Spur to Healsville is loaded with traffic and Police on sundays, not the best option. I was thinking Reefton Spur, up and down twice then back to Warburton-Gembrook-Emerald.
Just hope the weather plays along

I'll keep an eye on this but chances are I'll be going to Broady to test out my new track hack.

Yer you need to watch the mile markers on the road cos the cops time you for the distance.. Last time I was on the reefton run we stopped for a drink and 2 dirt bike cops came out of the bushes and done a rego check and a quick look at the bikes.. Reefton super run is better than the black spur.. I will keep an eye on hear and I should be able to make it...

Heading out this Sunday if anyone's interested.
Emerlad-Warburton-Reefton-Eildon-Jamieson.
It's a biggy, but the road between Eildon & Jamieson can't be beat.
Leaving Emerald around 9:30am.
PM if you're keen.

Yes my dawgs - Reefton-Eildon-Jamieson this Wednesday.
As mentioned previously, it's a big and fast ride; full-gear, no mohawks.
A couple of racer friends coming-along, one with his new Panigale 899 (which I hope to school )
PM me if you are interested.
