Early Spring Alpine ride - Photo heavy

Post  madmax on Sun 13 Sep 2015, 4:10 pm

I have a free weekend coming up this week. I was thinking of heading out Friday to Mansfield and Whitfield, maybe up to Myrtleford then heading down the Alpine Rd over the weekend.
Any body interested in tagging along?

wish I was close enough to do it as a weekender, have a great ride.

Can you keep an eye out for some cheap basic accommodation for the week between WSBKs and Grampians for mwe? I don't care how basic, I reckon the budget will be tight by the time I'm away for 2 weeks.

Should be a nice ride MM.  Any chance you could survey the Eildon - Jamieson - Mansfield road?  I know it is now all sealed.

A sitrep would be good MM. I'm packing up the camper and heading to Mansfield for a few days before going to the Island. Mansfield - Jamieson - Eildon will be the first ride.

The Jamieson pub looks good, but unfortunately i wont get too sample it rooms or fine dining. Some hot rod club had booked out the whole place. Mansfield was also slim pickings. Got a room at the Mansfield motel for $145 affraid .

Eildon -Jamieson road is worth the effort 60ks + of tight twisties and some fast sweeepers

Are you coming to the Grampians after the Superbikes?

Because we're planning on doing something similar between the weekends

What's wrong with YouTube Brian?
Bump the bit rate if you're losing quality.  Anything over 6500k should be good enough.

Are you  finalising it as an MP4? If you export as a WMF youtube has to do a heap of converting.
