Melbourne Benalla, Wangaratta,Albury Wodonga, Holbrook, Gundagai, Jugiong, Yass & then SUTTON … here for the next 4 nights for the Royal Enfield club AGM

Sutton, meaning ‘South Settlement’ in Saxon, is a small village in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia in Yass Valley Shire. It is situated on the west bank of the Yass River, about 17 kilometres south of Gundaroo, near the Federal Highway, not far from Canberra. Wikipedia

Leaving Melbourne

We love riding but have never done so in the dark. As we were meant to cover 713kms in a day we left the house at 5am which meant getting up at 4am & we did leave at 5.11am … it was dark but the roads were clear except for some morning traffic.

From this ….

The most amazing part of this journey has been the sunrise. Now I have seen many sunrises & sunsets but never ever have I ridden into a sunrise or witnessed one while riding a motorcycle. It was spectacular to say the least. The feeling of peace and tranquillity cannot be expressed in words …

It’s a feeling of utter freedom and abandonment coupled with a sense of peace πŸ™ Gives life a whole new meaning ❀️

To this !!!!

10 hours later we arrive at our destination… longest day ride for me and loved every minute of it !!! A fair bit of exhaustion but exhilaration as well πŸπŸ’πŸ

  1. Nothing to beat a fresh morning, calm light, an empty road and the knowledge that you don’t have to work, just enjoy the view. Take it easy the next couple of days, 700+kms is nothing to sneeze at. Fingers crossed the Botanic Garden is open for you as hoped.

      1. It was lovely riding with the group yesterday and the rain held out till the evening when we were all back in our cabins. It has rained non stop since last night … we leave to head home on Tuesday so hopefully it fines up by then πŸ™
