Old Road Head On

Just a note to guys riding up and down the Old Road , i was following a guy yesterday going south up the hill to PITS and i let him get ahead as he was quick in the straights but having trouble staying on his side of the road in the corners.Anyway i was behind him a coming out of a left and watched him have a head on with another bike going into the right,as he was over his lane pushing way to hard...not sure if it was a fatal but it didnt look good for both riders ...

This is very sad:

1. A rider has caused an accident due to 'unsafe' (and stupidly dangerous) riding practice
2. The unsafe rider hurt another rider in the process

3. This accident will affect at least two families

4. With another accident on the Old Road, the police will most likely continue to patrol this 'black spot area'...


...I sincerely hope that everyone involved is OK...

The poor guy took out two bikes Boof, the other being a Ducati, both rider and bike ended up over the side out of view. The guy on the white Busa is fairly well known around the traps. No fatalities I was told but all ended up in the North Shore Hilton, one being air lifted.
Another acco there today too, same place. Some guy lost it in ther shit on the road i heard. My mate passed by as the ambo was looking after the guy.
Now I hear that there was also a head on up the putty.
Getting a bit out of control i say......... too many egos on go-fast machines, best to give those roads a wide berth for a while.

I miss the old road and pie in the sky having a shit coffee served with contempt but being able to perv on all the bikes....about 5 months ago a young 21yo on a blue f4 lost the front and slid across the road right in front of me I just missed him he was then stuck in between the guard rail and under his bike so a mate and i had to drag the bike out and then pick it off him he said he had had it for 2 weeks and that it was his first day out on it..his previous bike was a ninja 250!

Hey Boof were you coming down or up the hill? I missed seeing you? Anyway I heard someone lost there leg I'n the crash at the scene?? Mate my guts is still churning.
I've seen guys come off on the Track and come off on the Track too but when you see it on the road makes me feel sick

You don't hit anyone head on at the track....

Seems many cities have their designated "racetrack" in the mountains....the Old Road is obviously Sydney's...

Can't you boys book Eastern Creek and let it rip there instead...then just go for a cruze in the opposite direction to the Old Road ???

A lot of guys can't afford track days I guess and seeing we only have one track getting a spot is hard
