did a three day trip for the super bikes @ symmonds plains, Snug to Sheffield. Stayed in Sheffield for two nights and commuted the 100 odd k's to Symmonds each day. The roads up the north-west are superb, the benefit of being a "marginal seat" that gets fundinhg thrown at it.

North and back was travelled over the lakes district of course.

Again, not too much photography, cos I just love riding too much.

But here are two teasers for those who haven't sampled the roads, or have but would like a reminder.

The comfy supplier of horsepower, browsing with the ancestors............

The contemplative Cat, chomping to get onto the road ahead.............

I'm starting to find the secret of riding such great roads, and stop riding to take pictures. You ride the road, think "that'd make a nice picture", turn around and ride back over the road, take the picture, then ride along that same great road again :lol: :lol:

Ahhh, wonder what those poor sods without bikes do for salvation of the soul????

Got some pics of the Supers I'll link to later, when I sort them out.

Yeeha,more, more !!! :) Now it makes sense, marginal seat and all....I just LOVE those tiny strips of tar about 20/30km inland from the North Coast...may it stay a marginal seat forever :lol:

They get out and take photos where the bus driver tells them to.

Thatís the one, nothing like riding a great piece of road twice and it gives us something to dream of. :lol:

Great pics, JJ. The Cat sure is a purty bike, isn't she!

I'm going to have to come up with a Cunning Plan to get myself + bike down to Tassie, that's for sure. The roads down there sound way too good for you to keep to yourself! :lol:

Come on down!!!

Bring the bikes, the missusses, the kids, stay at Chateau Iffracem in Snug.

Personal guided tours a specialty

Spouses looked after by Missus Iffracem (if they don't ride/pillion).

Bring a hearty appetite for great food, good wine (wine imported from south oz, local stuff too exy and too woosey :wink: ) , and great beer.

Bring your sense of humour, I'll test it out for you, no worries!

and bring a comfy bike seat.. you'll need it :muahaha:

That's for all Austourers, free accomodation at Iffracems'
I can fit three-four people inside, ( more on floorboard style beds), 3 bikes in the shed and 6+ bikes on concrete driveway.

Cars go in the street :P
