QLD: Pacific Highway

  1. Gday friends,

    I was just thinking about some of the rides I'll be going on and a thought occurred to me: the Gold Coast stretch of the Pacific is all cement. I remember it being irritating in my car (especially in wet weather). Will the cheap road have an impact on handling the bike?

  2. It definitely does. The groove channels also draw you into them and the wobbling is a little scary. But on the upside they're all straights since its a freeway. Theres not going to be any sharp curves you have to worry about losing traction on.
