Thunderbolts Way

First topic message reminder :

To the central Newsouthwelshers or anybody who's been through there recently -

Has Thunderbolts/Bucketts Way improved any over the last few years or do you still need to pack a spare pair of kidneys?

I rode up to see my Dad in Coffs Harbour a few weeks ago. Bylong Valley Way Was magic - Ryleston to Muswellbrook.

Far less appealing was  Aberdeen / Timor / Nundle / Ogunbil. A good test for the GS but not again any time soon.

And Ryleston Ilford Sofala Bathurst is just more of the same. What a Face

Just looked up the Bylong Valley Way.  That looks like a great bit of road. Do you plan on getting on it from just east of Denman off the Golden Hwy ?

Probably something like this (subject to some tweaking):

ROADWAY DETAILS:   A good bush road, although quite narrow in places. No problems in the dry for any vehicle; the route is not recommended for caravans; camper-trailers should be 4wd rated. But here's the Whitfield - Tolmie (Mansfield) Rd taken yesterday (Non Bandit) 



   Nice one 2W.  The VTR sounds sweet. Two cameras now eh ! Watch out Coleman.

ps.  Please clean the front brake calipers. Brake cleaner is good. Cover the rim with rags and give em a good spray. Wink

Thanks Hammy. I already have 3 cameras but cant use one with the rack fitted.
That was after 500km of the Great Alpine Way. They're usually pretty clean. One disc has developed a slight warp/pulse so they'll be coming off and getting the good clean.
