    80K is fine , Their are bugger all cops out the back. And even Some road`s where 80kph is actually fun.

  10. Nice . wish my old man(stepfather) would get some balls and his bike license back.

    Should be a great run . I usually do these little trips solo.So I never push too hard.

    If My buddy does not get on the drink tonight, He will be getting some practice in on my little bike before he buys a R6. +1 maybe here as well

  13. Sweet pic

    You guys did a great job. The run to claro is a pretty hard stretch of road (you know the bit).
    But technically Thats real riding,Nearly everything a normal road will ever throw at you. and that decreasing radius on the way back will test the best rider.

    Had to Swallow my shit a few times around that , But every time you push it that bit further then before ..It`s like F^&K Yeah , It never loses its thrill

    Also that bit of dirt riding :D ,The whole back road experience, Preps you for Any abnormal situations on a good road

  19. Updated time and date

    Me and my buddy smashed it today .HAd awesome Fun , Next time im taking him over the mountain.

    Looks like im selling this house. so if im not their my good buddy will be their to lead the charge and will know the roads backwards

    This run will be rather more complex then the last one .Dungog mountain is, Well, Its Shit and rain foresty (wet on a sunny day). But Its rather more interesting then just sitting on a bike in traffic
