    Hi guys,

    I am looking at this, can the missus on a sports bike get in there OK? She is well used to riding small sections of nice dirt road, but anything long or gnarly would be a problem.

    From memory about 8km of good dirt, but with some tightish turns and a few ups and downs.
    Last year there was a shorter lady on a big Suz road-bike that trowelled it and snapped off a footpeg bracket that made everything else (gearshift, etc) too hard and needed a trailer out.
    You know her bike and capabilities; suggest you leave her under a tree at the end of the bitumen and do a recce-run to see for yourself - all it takes is one good storm and any dirt road can become challenging for someone not used to it.

    You forgot to mention the weekend warriors [4WD's] or the caravan set, :clap
    these are by far the greatest danger, wet clay is no problem compared to people out for the weekend 'getaway' :huh
    between 'Trackhead' [ T intersection] & the second ramp, there's always sheep on the road too! :dllama

    Kim and I will take a shot at this, hopefully the road will be OK for her, if not, we can keep going and camp elsewhere. Bring it on!

    No problems with the dirt section, unless it's really wet, even then it's not too bad if she takes it easy. :rofl
