Not sure about the mine, but this is the White Rim Trail. These are the switchbacks right in front of the visitor center.

It wasn't helped by the fact that my ass was destroyed after only 60Km of riding the GS....ouch. Anyways, my rectum toughened up and I was able to go a little further afield but still no joy. I was hurting. And it wasn't my ass. I came from some of the most incredible canyon roads in Southern CA to a seemingly void venue. I was distraught and wasn't afraid of expressing my disgust. Some of the guys in work took pity and decided to educate me.
OK - it was still a good hours ride out of Sydney before we hit anything mildly interesting but when we did.....oh my.....

Coming down MacQuarie Pass I decided to turn around and have another go. Something snapped. I went nucking futs. It felt like I could finally get my razor sharp claws on a 4 month itch. Irresponsible? Yes. Gratifying? You have no idea! I don't ride like this all the time but by golly, I had to get it out of my system. Enjoy the ride.



In the US, people see a bike approach and get out of the way. Thank you. In OZ they go out of their way to block you. Not good when you have a bee in your bonnet like I did.

So that's my select - MacQuarie pass, NSW - best biking road I've ridden on so far (with Bouquet Cyn in Santa Clarita, CA coming in close second. Third spot goes to HWY1, CA between San Luis Obispo and Carmel)

marcoma...

nice vid...


there r actually ,multiple roads very simiar to mac-pass,,that breach the great divide,,,further down the sth coast,,

then there are the dirt versions to take on,,

the trick was to have been here 25 yrs ago when there was no bloody traffic and no limit !

Nope, that's not the one.

I remembered the road I was thinking of. Hey Joe Canyon also has a ledge road going down the cliff, though the run along the bottom of the canyon is every bit as frightening. There were a few times that we were literally leaning out over the Green River with the opposite side tires rubbing the wall.

There another Highway 129 at the other end of the country that has become quite famous as a great motorcycle road.
I think this one is nicer.
