avoid thunderbolts, it's turned into a goat track nowadays. We sort of zig zag up through the hunter then the coast. We always stay down at the pub at long flat or there's gingers as an option halfway across, or walcha is your other accom. option.

I'll be doing a trip up there mid January with a few of the boys, been way too long since I last got there.

Did it last week.. or might have been the week before?... and would do it again in a heartbeat. Mate, you will love it .. It is by far my most favourite road..

You will shed a tear when you see the sign of a motorcycle swerving... Next 42kms.....

Mind the cops on the straight, they like to sit there for those who decide to give it a fist full...

Dorzun is right, Thunderbolts has been ruined by logging trucks... It's now turned into a bit of a dangerous road.


Damn it, I want to go... Can I come????? Jealous of your road trip....

If any of you dudes wanna come on our weekend just say so, the more the merrier. It'll be a three daya, friday - sunday. Saturday is spent doing lap after lap after lap, horrible way to spend the day too.

Looking at either 8 - 10th or following weekend, just waiting on some of the boys to get back to me on when they can make it.
then on the piss back at the pub

P1040074.JPG The signpost looks like that - made last year's calendar too :)

P1040076.JPG Minor sign alterations...

Thunderbolts was awesome but sounds like it has been torn up a bit now - the weather recently would not have helped either.

Gwydir Highway is pretty good too :)
