Sunday morning, beautiful weather, time for a ride! Now to decide where to go, so many options to pick from Old Rd, Putty, Nasho.....mmmm i think i'll go somewhere i haven't been before and a little less known, that way hopefully there will be less bikes and cars on the roads. I take a quick look at whereis.com and pick out a route.
Kiss the loved one's goodbye suite up and helmet on, i set off on a fantastic sunday morning. Not a cloud in the sky, and about 23°C - perfect. I head off up the M4 and get off at Emu plains and make for old bathurst road up into the Blue Mountains, on to springwood and back down Hawksbury Rd. Stop at the lookout and have a chat to a guy on a trumpy 695 for half hour then set off again.
Turn off the putty and head up towards the sackville ferry, i've never been this way before and i wonder what the road ahead holds in store for me. Its easy going to the ferry. I wait a couple of minute and then have pole position on the ferry.
I get off the other side and decide to head up to St Albans. Its only about 20Km's so its a quick trip up and i stop at the pub for a toilet break and a quick drink of water. No beer for me, gee the pub is packed lots of bikes and cars, theres a band playing in the park. i head off after about 10 minutes and head back and leave that sweet country pub behind.
I get off the other side and head off back up wisemans ferry road and down to pit town, where i over take a ducati 1098. Looks like he wants to keep up, and we have a bit of fun through the twisties near the golf course in the middle section of wisemans ferry road. I also stop at the look out at the top near wisemans ferry for a quick photo then its off again.
Homeward bound i turn into blacktown Rd and it starts to spot with rain. Looks like i made it home just in time.
I give the R1 a wash and then give the rear ducktail a polish and clean and lube the chain ready for action next time. Its now raining pretty steady.
Its time for post ride beers........
Until next time.
