[NSW] Putty Road - Saturday 5th April

Discussion in 'NSW' started by conspiracytheorist, Apr 2, 2008.

  1. Note: Posting directly here instead of calendar as ride is 3 days away, so its allowed.. so don't delete/lock please or I may have to rip your nipples off :p

    OK so Putty road this (April 5th) Saturday.

    Leaving Berowra mobil shortly after 8am.

    The pace won't be too fast, but breaks won't be too long otherwise it can turn into a very long day, especially since we are going to do 10 mile at least twice.

    Thats right, we're going to push straight through to the half way house (apart from fuel stops), eat and break there, then do some laps of 10 mile.

    Then home via Windsor. Unless we made awesome time and people are in the mood to turn around and go back the way we came.

    NOTE: This is a long day (about 450kms for me, then add 30ish for laps) so L platers aren't encouraged unless they are confident. I won't be in front myself due to being slow, but thats not really an issue as the directions are simply 'straight on old pac, peats ridge, turnoff to wollombi, straight'.

    - Will (sv1000s)
    - Hornet600 (.. err riding hornet600)
    - Yak (riding a yak)
    - Trev (cbr600f5i)
    - Railtracks (no idea)

    And whoever else. Trying to get cameron and romeo. The more the merrier :)

    NOTE: Weather dependent, ride not on if its raining!
  2. 50/50 starter for part of the trip as I'm planning a 4-day trip north.

    Also depends on weather.

    I'll also be taking it easy so unfortunately for you, you'll have my company.
