Does a bear sh!t in the woods?

Welcome to the forum mate from the South West of Syndey.

What part of the big smoke are you in?

It's all on fire. The Oxley Highway is still closed after almost two months, Putty Rd is closed again after being open briefly.
I rode Bells Line and out to Oberon on Saturday, however the smoke from Windsor to Bilpin was the worst.
Kings Highway in the south has been open and closed a couple of times.

Maybe we'll be able to ride without choking by winter :p

Another one here. In the Hills area up the road from Parramatta. These fires have definitely taken toll on some of our fave riding areas of late.

I've ridden on all the roads mentioned in this tread and still rate the best public road for sports bikes is the old pac from PITS down to Brooklyn. Cops or no cops, it doesn't matter, their radars are useless bouncing off the sandstone walls around corners, been riding it for 30 years and never been pinned.

It is great yes, but the weekend warriors, learners, traffic, cops and the lycra brigade all make it not so great. When I do go up it's super early up to the slab and back to PITS for breakfast and then go home before the carnage begins

Weekdays are ideal but work requires me to turn up to get paid :(

I used to ride this road religiously every weekend. Been riding / driving it for 25 years also but I won't go up on weekends anymore either. Several fines and close calls with hero riders and drivers is what got me started on trackdays. These days it's an after work weekday or Sunday evening run.
