Conditions of Thunderbolts and Bucketts, The Putty etc

Discussion in 'Hazardous Road Condition Reports' started by The Hack, Mar 19, 2013.

  1. I am heading north next week (from Melbourne). Can any riders offer an up to date report on the condition of the Putty Road and Thunderbolts Way and Bucketts Way?
    Google maps is suggesting possible road closures on the latter two.

  2. Putty Road is fine
  3. here's a thought
    on the putty turn right into millbrodale rd to broke
    then left into broke rd to pokobin
    then left into wine country rd to branxton
    then cross the new england onto elderslie rd onto glendonbrook rd to east gresford
    over the hill to dungog
    over the hill to glouster
    at this point you can take the thunderbolts
    but if you have time go over the hill to nabiac (visit the motorcycle museum)
    up the pacific to wauhope
    up the oxley to walcha
    at this point you have ridden so magic rds that you otherwise may never have seen or heard of
    but you will have missed thunderbolts - no biggy
    good luck
