Spaghetti Rally

Ran the Stone up to Edi in the King Valley for the Moto Guzzi Club of Victoria’s annual Spaghetti Rally.  Took the Hume Freeway to Benalla, then cut in to Moyhu via Greta.  The place was lush following the recent heavy spring rains.  (Ned Kelly lived in Greta – Glenrowan, the site of the siege is just up the road a bit.  I passed the the site where he and his gang murdered three policemen, near Mansfield, on the return trip.)

Greta after spring rains.

I reached Edi early afternoon to find a dozen or so campers already there.  Had to cross a creek to get into the river flat – it was pretty muddy.  A lass was later to drop her Harley trying to get in.   Bikes were still arriving well into the night.  The Guzzi club organisers rolled up and I gave a hand setting up tents for the bar, cooking gear for for the spaghetti on Saturday night, and benches and so on.

The rally site at Edi in the King Valley.But I couldn’t stay for that, so after a night of drinking and talking bullshit, I set out for home.  Back along the valley to Whitfield then up over the range to Mansfield.  This is a great road but you need to keep an eye out for bikes and cars running wide on the bends.  And rock falls.  Stopped at Mansfield for a coffee and again at Yea for fuel.  The Cali running like a dream.  Two days on the bike – fantastic.
