  1. Hi guys,

    I'm new to Netrider. I've been riding about 5 years now (had a bike before a car licence) and currently own a 02 Honda VFR and a 1990 ZX2R i bought for my girlfriend to get her into riding (its currently in pieces as i struggle to get it going)

    Anyway. Work and various other things have been getting to me lately and I need a getaway. I'd take the mrs, but she's part of the cause :) I need to get out on the VFR for a decent ride. I live in newcastle and need guidance on a weekend trip. (Leave friday lunchtime, get back sunday evening) Can anyone give me a good trip route.

    Thanks in advance :)

  3. Try this for fun!! it's a road trip i just made up, with plenty of variety, just remember to stay away from the freeways!!!

    newcastle -> singleton -> richmond -> springwood -> werombi -> picton -> thirroul -> shellharbour -> vincentia -> canberra -> wagga wagga -> bathurst -> lithgow -> via bells line of road -> richmond -> gosford -> the entrance -> newcastle
  4. Stay away from them? Why?
  5. Thanks for the suggestions guys.
    As it turns out, work has informed me that i will be working this weekend.(thanks for the notice guys) So I went for a short ride this afternoon.

    Went Williamtown-Kurri Kurri- Cessnock-Wollombi-than halfway to wisemans ferry and turned around- Wollombi-some towns I didnt know the names of-Newcastle.

    it had been at least 6 months since I'd seen some twisties on Veronica(VFR). She loved it. Beer and lunch at Wollombi pub was well received as well :)
  6. Take the VIFFER to Broken Hill, Would be a good ride to clear the head I reckon....
