  • Re: Road rage on a scoot.

    [quote user="SmellyTofu"]I did a U turn after that to defuse the situation[/quote] Done that - and turned off, and pulled over.  A few times, pulled out the mobile and made like taking a pic: that rattles 'em - but sometimes enrages 'em more.  If I get a break in the invective, I say loudly that it's two ...

  • Re: Macquarie Pass

    For a little variety, try going up Jamberoo Mountain Road and down Macquarie Pass (or vice versa).  Jamberoo Mountain Road is much narrower, feels to be right "in" the forest and has better views from its more open sections.  It's a lovely road to take slow and easy.  I rode it on my R1200R last Sunday - it's a ...
