    Has anyone done this, or are there tracks? Would make a great over- nighter, either camping at Joh's dam or pub in town.Looks like some good country on Google maps.

    Lots of good riding between Kenillworth, Imbil, and across to Nanango. I haven't made it out as far as Kingaroy but Im sure you could make 2 solid days out there and back.

    Plan it and they will come

    Give Col a call at South Burnett motorcycles in Kingaroy. He does this fairly regularly and would be happy to share the route am sure

    Yeah as said lots of good riding through that area. There is some gravel to be found between Nanango and the Roy but I bypass the town centre as I'm usually heading further west.

    Are you after a route or just a general inquiry ?

    It's been a long time since I was on it, but the Memerambi-Barker Creek road was a nice way to get across from Nanango/Murgon towards Kingaroy.

    Thanks for all the replies guys.Just daydreaming about a 2 day ride and that area looks like it has a bit of everything. If anyone has a route or knows some good roads or tracks please post them.
    Regards Eric

    Do that - no bad roads around Kinga.

    Memarambi-barkers creek rd is good and about half way there is a turn to the north (starts with a 'c' or something) takes you right into Cherbourg forest. A few good trails and stuff in there

    Hmmmmm, maybe I might have to organise a pre-xmas ride once I'm back from NZ in December. If I do, I'll start a new thread and hopefully get some takers :freaky

    I only get back on the afternoon of the 14th, so it might be a bit tight to unpack all my shite and then pack up my camping gear. If you start a thread or send me a PM with details I'll try and make it (I've seen your latest vid of your latest ride and it looked pretty damn fun) :wink: Me mum said that I should only show girls me special place :deal
