Seems that you are coming over Hotham to Bairnsdale. Can't speak of Nth of Omeo as I haven't been up there of late, but have been to Omeo. If not already, be aware that the road section from Ensay to Bruthen is now mostly (hmmm, about 2/3 distance), signposted at 80kph. It's a bit like up in the Snowy, that's ok in some sections, but there are plenty of straighter sections where faster speed is easily attainable. Beware of what might be lurking. Most of the Bonang is reported to have been done the same way as has some between Omeo and Dinner Plain.
After having suffered my pain from an episode late last year, I've lost my nerve a bit and am more apprehensive these days. On my recent ride back from Omeo I had a white Pajero come up behind and pass me; what a disgrace! Am wondering why I bother anymore.
