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:

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
If you look like your passport photo then you're too sick to travel.

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

Bielie it's an excused to get out of Canberra. I'd be committing to that as early, and as often, as possible :)  (if I were silly enough to live there).

I just poured superglue into a non-stick pan. Someone is about to be wrong.

I'll be there.
I'll ride up Friday night from newcastle if anyone wants a riding buddy. I will stay in Port Macquarie though as my wife lives there.
Might bring her along on the back depending I'm what pace you guys usually set?

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.
