Good names for hills

Discussion in 'Roads, Touring, Journeys, and Travel' at netrider.net.au started by stefank, Jan 6, 2015.

  1. I went for a ride from Hobart to Orford and back yesterday. There are three signposted hills along the way: Black Charlie's Opening, Break Me Neck Hill and Bust Me Gall Hill. What else is there around the country that can compete with this?

  9. Wow do you often google mount buggery...:whistle: Maybe it was the topic for somebody's thesis...imagine the Dean reading out the topic to the gathered family and friends in the austere atmosphere of the graduation auditorium...snort!:p

    I like Mona Vale -Tumble Down Dick Hill...not far from the Ba'Hai temple we always called nipple hill as kids...and Dad would threaten us with the strap if we didn't stop giggling like jackals as we kept repeating it...:ROFLMAO:

  10. Pretty Sally - on the Old Hume North of Kilmore. Was a hoot to charge up up (Northbound) on a bike with a bit of poke before the Freeway was opened. The other way brought a lot of trucks unstuck. Magnificent hill. I always wondered about the name.

    The Paps near Mansfield. Some of the PC whiners in the town have talked about trying to get the name changed.

  11. Cairns has the wonderful "Yorkeys Knob" of course.

    Rudest name by far belongs to a town in Austria called "Fcuking". Yup really! Google it. Imagine living there.....
