You need more fuel range to go through Cabramurra and may have to divert to Tumbarumba to top up before heading further south ( depends on your range of course) Definitely top up at Adaminaby. I prefer Cabramurra, generally less traffic and definitely less coppers but it is a narrower road in places and less forgiving. Great scenery though. The choices heading south are endless down that way

Going via Adaminaby is a more interesting run, but the road gets tight after the dam heading towards Khancoban. The road through Thredbo is faster. Another nice stretch is Berridale to Adamidaby.

I do the Snowy Ride down there every year since 2003. It's a nice place to ride but can change quickly.
