Cheers

Davo coming back from the WSBK's on Tuesday on the Shannons flat - Tharwa road they were doing some work there was a section that they had torn up with the grader and it was a bit ordinary, keep an eye out, not a long section but it was loose and slippery.

Southern end after you come out of the trees in the open area.

Easy to spot and only about a Kilometre.

Park in the back streets then or at the showgrounds or a church car park or next to a grey nomad. The generator running all night is the only downside.

Most roads in that area won't be reopened.

I'm travelling via Bruthern, Buchan, Seldom Seen.

Catch you there.
What about over Birregun Chris? Any info.

This is the right answer! Get into a roadside stop about 4, go and introduce yourself,slip in a bit about your overseas adventures to make you a bit interesting, 5pm is happy hour with the old farts, so have a few bevvies with them, and I can just about guarantee that one mob will offer you a home cooked meal, enjoy that, then you'll get sweets and coffee!
Make sure you get their email and send them a thanks for their hospitality,seriuously, you can become part of their family nearly, just in one night!
And yes, I have experienced this a number of times personally, they may take more readily to a solo bike rider, not sure, but its a good lurk, get on it!!
