  1. I'll be heading up sydney way for a week from chrissy to nye and i'll be taking my bike with me. Any pointers on good roads, loops etc???

    And if anyone wants to catch up for a spin that would be great too. :)

  4. Agreed... these pretty much sum it up.

    also Old pacific hwy, and wisemans ferry rd can be good. the times you are talking about being here will be busy/cop-central though

  8. Quite fond of chaining a Royal National Park + Mac Pass + Gouburn + Oberon + Bell's Line of road loop together.

    Old road from Berowra through Wollombi, Broke, then back down Putty Road is good fun also.

  11. Only if you're holding a NSW licence. Not if you're holding a Victorian licence. In fact it's no demerit points for me. I would still get a fine though.

  19. From RTA Demerit Point FAQ:

    What if I hold a licence from another state or territory and commit a driving offence in NSW?

    You will be required to pay the fine in NSW. Where the offence is a relevant offence, details of the offence will be sent to your home state and included on your driving record. Your home state will determine the number of demerit points to be applied and will suspend your licence if the offence(s) causes you to exceed your demerit point limit. If you are suspended by your home state, you cannot drive in NSW.

    More:

    What if I commit a demerit point offence while driving outside of NSW?

    The National Driver Licensing Scheme (NDLS), which has been adopted by all Australian jurisdictions, provides that details of certain driving offences committed by a driver while visiting in another State are to be transferred to that driver's home jurisdiction for recording on their traffic record.

    The NDLS also provides that the driver’s home jurisdiction is to apply the number of demerit points it would have applied, had the offence been committed in the driver’s own jurisdiction.

    The relevant driving offences are those listed in the Administrative Guideline for the NDLS published by the National Transport Commission (www.ntc.gov.au).

    If you hold a NSW licence and commit one of the relevant offences in another state, the offence will be returned to NSW and the number of demerit points that the offence attracts in NSW will be applied. These demerit points may be used to suspend or refuse a licence.

    Roads and Maritime Services (replacing Roads and Traffic Authority) also maintains a register of your offences committed in NSW. If you commit offences that attract a value of 13 or more points in a three-year period, Roads and Maritime Services (replacing Roads and Traffic Authority) may withdraw your right to drive in NSW.
