I actually did it!! Fell asleep at KFC!!
I was so behind my predicted times and especially so when the awesome road's turned to gravel for an hour or two at a time.

I left at 0730 and got back home in one day for 14hrs, 1197.90km.
Too tired but My question is how can there be 3 different variants of total distances traveled, between GPS, Versys Trip Computer and Google Maps of 192km.

How far did I actually go? I only stopped for fuel and a photo.

That photo say's it all for the whole day.

Once I got going I never really stopped except for fuel and pies... still it was an awesome ride day ROAD TRACK DAY OUT!!! No traffic!! well chosen day no Police!!
Tired

I don't know how to 'pull' a still photo from a video, but, for an "exciting" moment check out the Day4 video in this thread, post #16, then go to 2 minutes 40 seconds....

Awfully close to a 'change your shorts' moment.

The section from Omeo to Tallangatta looks like lots of awesome twisties!

Awesome is correct. Some of the best riding I've ever done; it went on for hours.
