Catty and myself checked it out yesterday on the way through Wauchope. Accommodation looks modern, Pub looks OK  and the cafe looks small but a stone throw from where you are staying.

Post by: Bov on Monday, 04 December 2017, 05:03 am
Stayed at the timbertown a number of times jeff. On par on price with most other places in town but far nicer. The pub across the road is a real bonus, big quality meals with an outdoor area too.
Dunno about the cafe but its convenient.......

C'mon people we are on the downhill run to this even... just five months. 
So who's in ?!

According to the OP only Bov and I have booked so far? Surely that's not right... ?

It is still 5 months I am quite confident there will be more people! Just wiondering if anyone else has 'booked' a room. If so let me and Bov know and I'll add it to the OP.

I have done it a couple of times now, but i know you have probably lost count of the times you have done it now Jeff. Great bit of road & good to do it both ways if you can while you are there.

Steve, I usually do it at least once if not twice a year on a classic bike with a few mates from Taree doing a loop ride Wauchope, Walcha, Gloucester back to Taree, usually alternate direction, I love the mountain section of Thunderbolts. Bikes including Katana, XJ900, CB350/4, RD400. Fastest run up the Oxley to Gingers Creek was probably on the FJR being pushed by Buddy on the 14  :stir:

Post by: Snapey on Wednesday, 27 June 2018, 06:08 am
The 210km from Wauchope to Enfield Rd Yarrowitch and back is the best. If you keep going from Enfield Rd to Walcha it's 60km of boring highway.https://www.google.com.au/maps/dir/-31.3158327,151.979145/Wauchope+NSW/@-31.4031114,152.0734097,10z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m9!4m8!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x6b75fed355a47327:0x50609b490441fc0!2m2!1d152.7325131!2d-31.4721352!3e0

Same goes for Thunderbolts, Pete. Boring between Walcha and Nowendoc, but they made the roads like that so we can wear the centre out.

Hi Dan
I have a few comments on this:
1. Sorry I can't ride up with you as I won't be in Oz.
2. I would leave her in Port Mac so you can get into it if you want.
3. Pace, well some may not leave the pub if it is to cold or raining, ride the Oxley to your limit or bring the wife along.
Main thing is enjoy it, I always have.

Jeff

P.S. Just remembered you can also go to a Massage Parlour instead of the ride.

Not sure if this is the best place for this post.
Came from Walcha to Gingers Creek yesterday morning - roadworks on our side of the road in the twisty bit coming in to Gingers Creek (fairly long patches from the road's edge and about 0.5m wide)  - soft loose bitumen had the rear squirrelling around a bit.
Take care all.

Now we have cleared up the Tutu issue, I can't think of any reason why I shouldn't go... I'm not scared, I'm in. My budget normally extends to swagging it, does any non snorer want to share a room? It's likely I will take an extra day to get home. So Fri to Tues for me. I have a room and beer for the Bruce riding from Bundaberg (I live in Albany Creek)

I can make a 7am departure no worries - up to Vlad as he is leaving the earliest BUT we did originally say 7:30 and I believe that we should stick to that in case someone randomly shows up.

There seem to be a lot of bikes in that video Bov. Were they all part of MCR or some from the FJR group who were on the mountain too. My FJR mate said he followed a group of 1400's but also said a lot of them had no idea when it came to taking corners.

Yeah there were some FJR's that got caught up in our group Pete. Dunno about criticizing other riders, probably just the usual dick waving. Everyone had fun, got home safe and had a blast. Looking forward to Jindabyne next year.

Maybe it was you my mate was talking about Chris. Maroon one maybe with enough luggage to suggest he's on a world tour?

Top weekend guys - most enjoyable!

Thanks again to those organising - great job.

3500kms; 210L fuel; Unknown but hugely significant quantities of beer, pies and egg and bacon rolls!!!

Having taken in the Crookwell/Oberon Road, Bells Line, Putty Road, Oxley Hwy (twice!), Bathurst/Crookwell Road and Bylong Valley Way in NSW, had to finish up with the Murray River Road, Tawonga Gap Road, Whitfield/Mansfield Road and the Reefton Spur in Vic.

3500!!  Bloody staggering. Fantastic effort Black14.  That's more than twice the length of NZ!  Think we're about 1500k top to bottom - as the crow flies anyway.

Yes it was Pete - carting all that luggage is what surprised me - nice bloke though. He reckons we were holding him up  :rofl2:

He is a good bloke Chris & also a very fast but safe rider with enough brains to know that 1300cc, a 5 speed box and all that luggage would make passing an empty 1400 difficult. If you'd have let him through he'd have been out of site in about 5 corners. He's done around 400,000km on that bike so he's had plenty of practice.

The Stig put in more kms than me. Met me and Boof at Lilydale from Somerville when we left. Boof back to Blackburn via the highway from Mansfield. Me and Stig via the Reefton. I headed home to Mount Evelyn from Hoddles Creek on the Gembrook road. Stig had another 75km or so to go.
And he went all the way to Walcha on Saturday's ride whereas I went maybe 20km past Gingers and back to the Long Flat pub.
 :cheers:
So longest distance award definitely to the Stig.
 :notworthy:
