Very nice Dave! I am jealous! I really would have liked to have gone down for the race this year, but just had too much going on. What a great result it was for the Aussies!

Thanks!
I'm afraid it's OK around Kinglake there, but some parts are still totally wasteland, for eg. look in the background of this photo:

It certainly is a wasteland there still. I remember driving into Melbourne along the Hume about 11 months after the fires and being horrified by how different the approach to the city looked. It is good that some areas have recovered, but some areas may never be the same again from what i have heard and by the looks of this photo. Very sad.

The Wee on the way back from Phillip Island, somewhere along the Great Ocean Road. 4,150km and didn't miss a beat, Bellingen to PI via the Barry Way and back via Port Fairy and lake Cargelligo.

Default My new panniers

Before and after pics of my new panniers. One had a bit of gravel rash from a fall (previous owner,rider fine)
I gave it a very light sand to get most of the roughness away and sprayed them lightly with some satin black
I'm one very happy Strommer

Everything is growing back perfectly just as nature intended. The only reason the "forests are destroyed forever" is because it sounds good on the evening TV news.
Even if you look at the background hills in the photo in real life you will see that the undergrowth has come back stronger than it ever was and in another 10-15 years when the saplings have grown you will no longer be able to see the tall dead trees. When they eventually rot and fall they will create even more biodiversity.
The only real destruction is the massive areas that were clear felled by the state government in an attempt to get a financial windfall from the timber within the two years from the date of the fires and before the timber became useless for resale.
