[NSW] Kyogle :soapbox: I did a 290Km trip yesterday since it was such a nice day, and such weather has been rare this year. Kyogle Rd from around the Byrril Creek turn off, to Kyogle has long been of poor quality, and I've noticed the number of bikes dropping off over the last couple of years. I haven't been on this road past the Nimbin turn off for a long time so thought I'd give it a go as the scenery is nice. The condition of the road was pathetic, there are many nice sweeping corners that are now a mosaic of pothole repair jobs that were never smoothed off, now overlapping. Other holes were found along the road, and many on corners, also some gravel. It was very annoying and screwed with my mind wondering what was around the next corner, so it wasn't as enjoyable as it should have been. To get even worse, there was a roadworks site, with one lane closed and portable lights at each end. When I got my turn, I came across an excavator slewing with its counterweights over the safety barricade and into the traffic lane! As the trip continued the road got better, and you always notice the difference (for the better) when you get onto a state road in Qld. For what its worth, I emailed the council about the road and excavator. Tomorrow is bolt and loctite time, hopefully i still have them all.
