Yes, it was a great day, thanks guys. I love driving those northern NSW roads, and SPy seems to know where most of the good ones are. And great company too. I was a little apprehensive of going on a run with two SP's to keep up with, but it was a good pace, and the NB8A didn't embarress itself!
The bike we saw crashed, made an appearance on the ABC news last night... Apparently it had been side swiped by a car which failed to stop - Police are looking for the car. The news story mentioned 2 other bike crashes in SE QLD yesterday as well. I can understand why, having seen some of the antics yesterday.
I was also surprised at the number of cyclists riding up and down the road to Springbrook.
Oh, and at Speed on Tweed I sat in a new Lotus Exige S
It was an experiment really, as I didn't think anyone over about 5and a half feet tall would be able to fit in... Climbing in wasn't easy, I'm sure there would have been an easier method to the one I chose, but once inside.... Fantastic!! Driving position was ideal, and I had about two inches of headroom (I'm just over 6ft tall). Great little car.
SPy and I got caught in the rain on the way home.... Luckily we didn't have to stop, and maintained a good KDS (Keep Dry Speed - my new found term from the day!)
