Interstate travel is a guessing game at the moment but judging from all the workshop chatter, our collective wanderlust clearly can’t be extinguished and the need for more summer adventures is palpable- we’re all hungry for the open road.
Our plan to scratch the travel itch is a 4 day journey from Melbourne to the mountains via wine country on the return leg. Just shy of a 1000km round trip. We’ve got Ross to thank for the plan. This legend spun the blueprint for our trip in less time than it takes to sink a cold Panhead on a hot day on the tools. Here’s (kind of) how it went down:
“Look around you, my brothers and sisters” proclaimed Ross in a very bold, Gandalf-like manner, while the rest of us sweated over a Tassie alternative. “Follow me into the heart of Victoria’s epic alpine country”, pointing to the east like a prophet, “there, we shall satisfy our insatiable desire for moto exploration and the rejuvenating promise of the open road”. Yes, we thought, here’s a man who knows his way around and yes, we are your willing disciples. Lead the way, we said, lead us on an odyssey to Mount Baw Baw, Mount Buffalo and other dramatic sounding Mounts…
So there you have it, a Vic High Country trip with a roof over our head each night, cosy pubs after a long day in the saddle, family cook-ups, a support vehicle to carry gear and capture our escapade and not a single border crossing to stress over. Who’s keen?

Join our mindful moto movement
Here we are, Kommune Konnections officially fired up. Our mindful moto movement funded by the good folks at the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride and Movember as part of their Social Connections Challenge, aimed at improving the mental wellbeing and social connectedness of our community.
We’d love it if you register below and become an offical participant, apart from instant good karma (brace yourself, life’s about to get real rad real quick), your registration is super important to the future of Konnections. Plus, you’ll be the first to get invites to events with limited capacity, which means not MotoFomo. It’s just one simple form below. Easy as.
You don’t need to be a Kommune member to register and you don’t need to register to attend our events.
Being an official participant means you’ll be able to deliver feedback to our assessors who need to know that our events and gatherings are actually helping to improve your sense of wellbeing- they don’t just take our word for it!
Like we said, everyone is welcome to come hang at Konnections gatherings but registered participants have the ability to shape what Konnections is now and what it could be in the future. Your say counts.
