GS OZ Day 101 Metung 245km 3:30hr

Falwell to the Fuller clan and then south to Gipsland. I organized to stay at My mate Franks farm near Metung. Suz had driven up from Melbourne with a friend Anna.

Franks farm is like a multi building Manland. Firstly theres the house complete with Ducati in the lounge and verandas overlooking the property. Then there's a party shed with bar, fire bins, facility for kegs inc taps etc. Next the toy shed with Franks collection of motor bikes(5) and a wwII jeep. Finally the workshop shed including a smattering of quad Bikes. This is Heaven

it was the Quad bikes that Frank suggested we try first. what fun Frank rode one with Suz clinging for dear life on the back and Anna ridding the other with me on the back. the property is basically a fun park for these bikes we bush bashed thrashed them in circles pushed some steeps and generally invested their carbon footprint wisely.

Next up it was on to the motor bikes. Frank on his Beemer with Side car (wheel chair fits nicely in the side car) Suz on the back, me on my Beemer, Anna on franks Beemer GS and Brian on the Ducati. The ride was beautiful following the Tambo river to the Bruthen Brewery for a cleanser and a squirt back home via Metung to pick up BBQ supplies. The BBQ that evening was a great chance to meet some Franks rather extended family.

What Fun
