      Hopefully, they are hot mixing the lot, complete with rumble strips and gravel traps. It makes sense, you know it does.

        Slippery. ESP around brocky corner. Mainly blu metal too. Can't see it.

        I hit gravel elsewhere. No injuries but a few scratches. I'll leave it as is for a bit then get insurance to fix it.

            Leaving roads like this has killed one extremely good rider. Last time they did work on Obriens the next corner on from Brokies Used every bit of skill that I had to stay upright. You can not see this blue metal until you feel the bike squirming. At first I thought I had a deflating tyre or mechanical issue.
            Signs should be erected.

            Just home from a ride and see Lovers Lane near Toodyay has been sealed, not sure how far it goes as the loose blue metal sign posted but not good for riding so turned back.

              Yea but they wouldn't be able to help themselves and would end up dropping the speed limit to 50 if they did that.

                This was the end result of shortfuse's ride on that road, also blue metal. In hindsight... kinda wish it was my MV that ended up like that instead... I was unlucky enough to make it through the corner though....

                  It's sad to see a bike damaged like that regardless of make and model, makes u wanna cave someone's face in for that, not enough warnning time-distance.

                    Cos I'm sure that happened at the posted speed limit.
                    While I agree the road surface can be hazardous at times it's a bit of a mute point if your doing triple the speed limit

                          There was a PSBer who crashed on Nanga doing the speed limit when he comes across blue metal. Didn't matter that he was an experienced rider.

                          Councils should be held to task.

                          Or every time they kill one of ours we kill one of theirs.

                            and what gives you the slightest indication that that was not done at the speed limit?
                            The greatest excitement comes from besting who you were yesterday.

                              He was very lucky not to come out worse than he did..I was directly infront of him and saw him fly in the bushes in my rear view mirror..my bike went sideways around the corner, I was extremely lucky not to suffer the same fate
