The Lions Rd, Mt Lindesay Freeway, Summerland Means, Numinbah Rd, Tomewin Rd and others are a few of the greatest roads for motorcyclists nearly wherever and certain to be fashionable this weekend.
Sadly, I’m in iso till Monday (damaging take a look at pending), however I’m hoping to move down the Lions Rd very quickly.
I went down there lately to the border the place large concrete boundaries halted my enjoyable on the Harley-Davidson Sportster S.
It’s been too lengthy with the border closed twice for lengthy durations.
We gained’t go into the politics and the case for and towards border closures.
As a substitute, let’s simply revel within the enjoyable available now the borders are opening.
I do know a number of riders who’re itching to go and there would possibly even be some early risers tomorrow staking a declare to be the primary to cross the border on the Lions Rd which opens at 5am.
It’s nearly just like the Berlin Wall coming down for riders, particularly given some borders have been “arduous closures” with concrete boundaries.
