KLR Vs Mt Buffalo Australia

Today i decided to take the Klr for a day trip to Mt Buffalo in Victoria, Australia. From where i live it's only about 160km's but it's such a beautiful place, the road is awesome and the Klr handled it fantastically, in fact i couldn't imagine a better bike for climbing up tight winding roads like these.
There was about 2kms of very rough dirt to get to the top where there is a lookout and some very nice view's are to be had. There were a few fires around so it wasn't as clear seeing as usual but here are some pics anyway.
Hope you enjoy........

That's a very beautiful place!! I was supposed to be headed your way in a couple weeks, but I had to pass due to other obligations.. I was going to be working down around Morewell/Trararalgon area for a couple weeks..

I'm not going, but I'll pass info onto the guys that are headed that way for something to do while there.

There's always another time..

If you do make it to the States, remember that it's the same as Oz.. It's a big place, and what you see in one part will be completely different only a few hours away..

I was suprised when I got to the area Southeast of Mebourne.. I was expecting what I saw on TV, only to find a green, agricultural area that look a lot like Tennesee hills..

Driving there wasn't an issue, but it screwed me up when I got home.. I couldn't remember what side of the street to drive up after making a corner.
