I am a new - mature age, female - rider, have only traveled about 400km on open roads, no experience in the ranges as yet. There is a planned trip over the Dorrigo range to Coff's Harbour in a couple of weeks; bikes (no pillions) and a vehicle to carry gear. About 4 hrs travel time each way. (Staying the weekend) I am feeling quite nervous but excited to be heading off on my first real road trip. Any tips for this newby?
