90 miles straight

Discussion in 'Multimedia' at netrider.net.au started by stu_h, Sep 2, 2011.

  1. Australia's 90 mile straight.

    146.6 KM of straight RD.

    Over an hour of straightness, compressed to 2 minutes.

    My pain, your pleasure.






    The road is Here

  2. Over an hour? What took you so long? :LOL:

    Seems like prime territory for taking a big +1000cc tourer to stretch its legs.

    .....unless of course the cops know that and theres a speed camera halfway along or something.

  3. Because it would be a good thing to say on a public forum....

    "146.6 km done in 55 minutes for an average speed of 150 k/h"

    Because I would never do that.

  5. There's a sign near the the start of the Nullarbor Plain to the effect that 'Speeds checked by aerial observation.' There are a series of white strips painted on the road every few km, basically to freak people out, I think. Somebody has spray-canned the sign - "PIGS IN SPACE!" Best piece of graffiti I've ever seen.


    LOL - Looking for shot of the sign on google images. Didn't find it - but I did find this. Too funny to just leave.

  11. Boring is not the word. It wasn't on that exact piece of road I tried to have a wank as an 18 yo, but it was that kind of road.

  18. Only stretch of road where drivers nod or wave to each other.

    I got booked along there for 10km over the limit. The cops were nice but seriously. I might kill a shrub.

  19. Booked for 10kph over on an empty, straight freeway in clear conditions and no traffic?

    Maybe not so different from Victoria afterall. ;)

  20. What a bunch of fvcking losers! This entire country has gone to pot. Australian police: ensuring it takes everyone 10 hours to travel 1100 km across one of the straightest roads on the entire fvcking planet. =D>
