Originally the blog was about nice roads to ride and where to find a good coffee. That old content is now gone but the ‘good roads’ posts remain here in the vault.

Australia’s best motorcycle roads – Copeton dam

I only recently came to ride this route although had been told about it as far back as 2010. The road runs between Inverell and Bingara via the Copeton dam. It is well surveyed and as of writing good surface. You can enjoy the ride as well as views of […]

Australia’s best motorcycle roads. The Oxley.

The Oxley for me remains the top ride in Australia. Some roads have lots of corners all squashed together, you spend all your time on change of direction rather than enjoying a radius and hang time. Other roads are spaced out affairs or photogenic passes but not a great ride. […]

Australia’s Best Motorcycle Roads – Bylong Valley Way

This for me is another of the best rides in the country. It has amazing scenery including one of the best canyons in Australia. It is not closed in by trees like so many riding roads in Australia. Then it has a mixture of curves but mostly sweepers which again […]

Australia’s Best Motorcycle Roads – Comboyne road NSW

The road from Wauhope to the village of Comboyne is a fantastic ride. I rode across from Wingham and the rest of this road south has a long gravel section that is not well graded and very loose stones but from Comboyne north you have a terrific table top dairy […]

Australia’s Best Motorcycle Roads – Warrumbungles way

To the west of Coonabaraban lies the Warrumbungles range. The ride out there is quite spectacular and some nice curves as well. Then you can visit the Siding Spring Observatory if you wish which has great views of the surrounding countryside. To the south east the Warrumbungles way is also […]

Australia’s best motorcycle roads – Bonang Road

The road from Bombala to Orbost is one of the best rides in the country in my opinion. Sweeping grand high plains road, a little bit of gravel then 105km of non stop corners down to Orbost. Bombala is a destination in itself, great history and affordable pubs and of […]

Australia’s Best Motorcycle Roads – Yarra Ranges

There is a number of great riding roads in the Yarra ranges near Melbourne. I will try detail a few I have ridden but there is no doubt many variations I will  miss. I rode Healsville to Marysville on B360 and C512 routes then C513 and C511 via Reefton to […]

Australia’s Best Motorcycle Roads – Four Mountains of Bega

The area near Bega NSW has some excellent riding. There used to be a booklet for riders that invited you to ‘ride the four mountains’ that I no longer have a copy of. Leaving Bombala I rode some of these roads and they were superb. First I rode to Wyndham via […]

Australia’s best motorcycle roads – Wee Jasper

I waited 10 years to ride this as there are a lot of other roads competing for my attention in the region all of which are full sealed whilst this route has 30 km of gravel (and used to be 60km unsealed) It is very scenic and quite remote, no […]

Nice local roads – Nerang-Murwillumbah Road.

The Nerang-Murwillumbah road  was also called Advancetown after nearby pub or Hinze raceway as it was popular with the wanna be racers two or four wheels. With such a nice set of curves and excellent surface it was always a nice ride but the police became very heavy handed in […]

Australia’s Best Motorcycle Roads – The Tablelands Way

This is an excellent route. From Oberon to Goulburn the road used to have some gravel but has became a popular riding road and the government came up with the name Tablelands way. Very scenic with terrific views riding along the ridges. The town of Taralga has a nice historic […]
