A nice pair!

1981 RS's. 17 engine numbers apart.
The bridge is Mckillops, in Victoria Aus.
This past weekend was a trip with a mate, back to where our riding adventures really began.

Thanks Rob!

Do you know how many times I confused the bikes over those three days? (long weekend)
To the point of a few times me looking at something on my bike and thinking Doh! wrong bike, looking at the other bike and thinking Double Doh! :mrgreen:

Mckillops bridge is 256 metres long and about 90-100 ft above the Snowy River.
The Snowy River was once a mighty drain from the snow covered alps. But most of the water was dammed and diverted through tunnels to the other side of the alps in the 1950's, to irrigate the parched inland.


I caught a nice trout that became crispy skinned bbq'd trout. Mama mia.

I love "Highlight/Right-click/Search Google for 'Mckillops bridge'"! (et al)

https://www.google.com/search?q=Mckillo ... 3&ie=UTF-8

edit: I was just admiring the area on Street View. What a delightful little corner of the world! I like the little park on the east end of the bridge.

edit again:

We camped in that park, as we did 33 years ago when we first went there.
There are no camping signs there now. Apparently.

What about the road to the left, just before you get on the bridge? Does it go far, or anywhere interesting/campable?

That's called Deddick track. It goes for miles and links up with other tracks. Absolutely fantastic on dirt bikes.
The track gets up quite high and affords magnificent views of the bridge down in the valley.

Funny day on that track about thirty years ago, my mate and I were riding our XL500's along the track when two emus jumped out in front of us and started running down the track in front of us.
I passed one emu which resulted in the most hilarious train! Emu, bike, emu, bike for about 100 yards till they dived of the track and into the scrub. I still remember the stones being flicked up at me by the emu's feet.

Finally, Rob posts a picture of himself and frankly, I'm disappointed. He looks so nonchalant. Rob, got any pictures of yourself where you're smiling? :)
