I used to live in Newcastle, NSW and seem to remember a truck driving mate tell that the Putty road was a dodgy road for accidents, is that right??

No more than any other twisty road when all the idiots come out.

During the week it's empty, and if you get up early you mostly have the road to yourself.

A lot of the tight stuff has been recently resurfaced and its bloody good.

Ive never ridden the putty. We should go for a ride sometime.

I'm always up for a ride, The Putty/Wolombi/Old road loop is pretty good, ot just an early morning ride up the Putty to the old truck stop, an old bloke has set up a wood fired BBQ there and cooks up bacon and egg or snags in a roll with a pot of coffee always brewing, breakfast of champions.

Its been 6 months since I last did the Putty Road. Its a good ride during the week and it also leads into some great riding country in the Hunter Valley. I was up there today but on my Buell not my VFR. 


A Putty Rd ride could be an option for an NSW meet up? I'd be interested

I'll set up a Sydney riders thread and see how it goes.

I mostly ride during the week whenever I find a bit of time to get away, or early Sunday morning.

I also do the Oxley and Phillip Island for WSBK every year.

Thanks for the positive comments.

Still going and looking well, turned over 130,000km last month while doing the Oxley with mates. 

The only worn part that needs replacing badly is the VTR lower forks as they are worn beyond service, hard to find in good condition.

Sweet 5g~!  Very tastefully done.   Funky spot - my kind of place for a brief stopover.  I'd like to find out more about "gossip girl"!  :wink:
