I was thinking the other day,,,we need a listing on good Cruise sites. We all wonder where to go to next.

Heres some off the top of my aging head:-

Royal National Park (Nasho).

Nasho then down the coast to the Gong.

Putty Road (to Singleton).

Old Gosford Road or Old Pacific Hwy(Yumm).

Bells Line of Road. (More Yumm).

Tallowa Dam (Kangaroo Valley).

Batemans Bay (Especially Shell's Way).

McCarrs Creek Road (PranK's)

Akuna Bay

Wee Jasper (out the back of Yass,,,overnight one).

Anybody else got some????..

Neil.

heh, that's where I took my car for it's test drive! It was a done deal by the first corner :)

Today I took the bike through the Nasho, down the coast, up Macquarie Pass, down Jamberoo Mt Road then back up the Princes Hwy. 320 km round trip. Recommend it. :P

For those not worried about a bit of travel, you can't go past The Alpine Way- Jindabyne to Khancoban (guaranteed to bring on car sickness in even the most resistant of passengers!).

A personal all time favourite is also the Great Ocean Road, particularly between Anglesea and Apollo Bay- great if you can avoid the tour buses and hire cars.

A word of warning about Tallawarah Dam at Kangeroo Valley- watch out for the water board trucks with radar guns (I'm sure Duncan would be happy to retell that little story!).

There's a really fun drive just off the northern road at Narallen, only about 2.6klm long, but you can always drive around again:D Not for cruising though.

(Sorry, which water board truck was that, thread hijacker:chairshot "I have no recollection of these events")

Oh he of the short memory.....

Duncan has the fame of perhaps being the ONLY person ever pulled up for speeding by a water board truck.

We were camping down at Kangeroo Valley when he

tried to set the land speed record in an old yellow datsun (yes there was a day before the blue skyser).

Unfortunately a water board truck had set up a speed trap on the dirt road (or just happened to be passing by, depending on which story you believe) and caught up with him about 5 minutes later.

Duncan (boy racer) was lucky to escape with a stern warning and the threat of having his rego number reported to the local constabulary......

Kelly (12 points) Handley was left with a smug "I told you it was a bad idea" look on her face.....

I definately have to agree with Alpine Way...... now that's an awesome drive!

but closer to home Maquarie Pass, near the gong can be fun.. there is a plethera of large drift corners to choose from!

i live in sydney now but i am originally country boy from Bathurst.

Mt pan is a public road, and if you do it right you can get a real good run across the top.

just watch out for the cop on conrod on the way down!!!

You're from Bathurst? Heh, me to. Learnt to drive on the mount. I always love coming over the top of skyline down into the esses.. Just a cool feeling to suddenly see this curvy road appear below you.

You're right about conrod though.. Never a safe place to speed anywhere on that straight. And if you're not on the brakes the whole way down, then you're bound to get done for doing 80..

Came around the chase once slightly sideways with a couple of mates... And just behind the tyre wall with his radar pointed up the straight was constable care. I was doing 50 down the straight, so he just let me go :D

The nasho run is pretty cool... I do it about once a month, but it's never been dry :)

On the hunter valley cruise, I quite enjoyed the Pacific highway between just north of Sydney and Gosford.

Has anyone ever been to a place called the Coal Loader at the steel works down in wollongong? Is basically 2 or 3k's of dead straight road along the steel works that you can see from the lighthouse in the gong. The Road is basically only used by the odd Coal truck or fisherman. Very good spot for some Demos/fly bys. Only problem is there is one road in and out.

Hmmm... I have a vauge recollection of such events Mr. Airzone.. I cant believe you got out of that points free :)

What car did you drive around in Bathurst MrFrontMount ?

My fav bit on the mount..... right hand side of the road at the top of the dipper, punch it through the apex and then apex the next corner (you can see for oncoming) by the time you reach the right hander before forest elbow your doing over 120 then hard on the brakes.... mmmm, nothing like it.

Twisties between Lithgow and Bathurst (Tarana Road) has got to be one of my favorites !

Cant go past Mt. Victora Pass and River lett hill on the Great Western Highway too..

:burnout:

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
