    Anzac Bridge off ramp, the rain is now very heavy and immediatly after the wipers pass, the visibility is ZERO

    Over Darling harbour, looking at the CBD highrise buildings through the rain.

    Approaching the Harbour Bridge (AKA, The Big Coathangar)

    rain is easing now to just a heavy downpour.

    the water on the road was about 2 inches deep! making driving more than about 60Kph impossible, the car simply couldnt push through the drag of all that water on the road.


    post ya best...

    Pics look good, but taken from the inside of a car/truck.. that's kinda like cheating, no?

    Let's see where this one will take us.. bring it on tough all weather riders!

    The hangy-down part was twisting. Nice.

    And what I learned: if you think you're gonna beat it, you're not. Look for an abandoned farm shed to hole up in.

    Preferably before the hail starts.
