Hi Joel,

There are loads of good roads around South East Queensland. Especiailly around the Gold Coast hinterland region. Would you like a scan of a map with some of the better roads highlighted?

You will find out about the popular ones soon enough but they are often often over policed and crowded on the weekend. The trick is to venture out and find the open country roads.

Cheers,
Russ

Scan sounds good. Actually i dont mind exploring so it'll be fun to find out the hard way. Got rid of the duck and now have a gixxer750 so maybe we could go for a 750 ride?

Sure. I'll give you a buzz next time we have a run.

If you would like to PM your email address to me, I'll send you a scan to get you started.

I love my back yard Joel , I have my faves. I like to link Spring brook and beechmont together for a tight cut and thrusting run when out for a play . just be aware of the plods on week ends blitzing the area big time . they will use two or three cars spaced out along the Valleys or mountains working together .They are there to help stop our selves from visiting the mourge , which we have had way way too many riders do in the last few years . So be carefull.
We often go into northern NSW out to Kyogle then around Mt Lindsey back into Queensland or Out to Boona Boedesart Warwick and beyond for a longer run .
Basically there is plenty of exploring for you to do whether its apex strafing or sight seeing or a bit of both. If your looking for a ride and a good coffee give me a PM when you settle in.

It wasn't intentional. Got lost! 1098 rear Pirellis tear so easily I dread the thought of finding myself off the bitumen too often!

Moral of the story - don't follow Haz last time I did there was nearly a slaughter of a family of small fluffy duckies. Haz I am just kidding. The duckies are still alive! traumatised for life, but still alive. However, I am sure you know all the good roads.

Joel there are some great roads, I too have travelled on them, but being a girl could not possibly remember their names, or where we went, I just follow the man in front. But they were fun - apart from the one going down the big hill from Mt Tamborine with a traffic light thing at the top of it - I didn't like that - at all.
