    As a road I totally agree with you, the Barry Way is average at best and that's before you take into account the oncoming traffic that struggles to stay on it's own side of the road.
    But like riding anywhere in the Snowy's the view is priceless.
    Richo put up two options, I expressed my preference.

    Places to see? You could come and see my place?
    I won’t offer you route advice or offer to ride with you a ways or even talk to you!
    But I will offer cold beer and you could park your bike outside, away from the shed?

    Coincidence or lucky for you! We actually have a very nice Canadian Sheila staying with us until 29 November so fortunately for her she will be gone when you get here. Shotguns don’t shoot very far so I always had a rifle! You allowed your brother to buy a BWM??

    Well, there you go, I thought the gsa had jugs sticking out the side. Guess the route backstory sidetracked my thinking.

    You are demented indeed Richo.

    Should I ride my r75/5 on fire trails? Want to see if I can find you a "short cut"...

    At one stage a 75/5 was the bike of choice for travelling anywhere it could get traction.

    Because it won't get ridden in favour of the others.

    Well @richo360 , are you going to use this a s a commuter or road tourer ?
    Needs some serious suspension upgrades if you are contemplating any real off road activity.
    Makes a reasonable road bike just ask @BygDaddee :lol3
