We're off to the Victorian high country next March but some of the lads were over there last week & one of the big hills is Billy Goats Track

Derek the 73yr old on the TTR got up using 1st & 2nd, it looks like one hell of a hill.

None of these videos are any of us !!!!  but a TTR has been up there

 

Two up on Billy Goats

Wow - that is some hill!  I think the camera also did not really do justice to how steep it is in places - demonstrated by the guys bike sliding backwards with front wheel locked when he stopped to catch his breath......

Bet it would be interesting in the wet wink

Puts the location into perspective doesn't it?

 Sure does & Derek our 73yr old mate rode up there last week on a TTR, standard gearing, 1 & 2nd all the way up the hill & then they rode back down.

New tyres were fitted for the trip & we were talking about our planned trip over there next year, my TTR has lower gearing which could be an advantage.

 Guys including several of my riding mates were over there last week, very hot ( mid to high 30's ) 3 of them are with us in March, unknown what the weather will be like...could be hot or raining perhaps both.

Our Derek was on a TTR
