Yeah, it is. Is the road into town still gravel or have they finished laying the bitumen?? 
What happened to the Yowie footprints??

wordsmith and kimmie, 
Mt Lindsay hwy is fun, a bit rough in places but fun, I have no idea how it classifies as a "Highway" though.
 
Yes bitumen all the way, but, we came in from the West, parts of the road leaving Legume are possibly the worst bitumen road I've ever ridden on. The bikes were moving around a lot, the wheels chattering across the small bumps, impossible to hold a line. There were some new bits too which were great.
 
Worse was the spot road repairs, the council team had been spraying tar on the holes then covering with loose gravel. Hard to see them with the mix of sun and shadows across the road, we both had some close calls, bloody dangerous.
 
Yowie footprints? There are markings painted on the road a few k's out of Woodenbong towards Rathdowney that say Yowie, I'll stop next time and see what else is there.
 
I've only been out that way a couple of times, both prior times I've gone via Murwillumbah, Kyogle, Woodenbong then Rathdowney. I saw this map on another mc forum and went this way, we couldn't see a way from Findon Creek though so ended up back tracking via Summerland Way to Rathdowney.
Lions Road is closed at the moment but apparently there's another way, any ideas?

Lions road was still closed when I went South a few weeks ago, and I ended up going via Rathdowney and Kyogle too.
From there to Casino and West to Tenterfield, South to Glen Innes, East to Grafton, South-West to Armidale, South to Walcha, East to Wauchope, North to Kempsey.
 
Now starting to plot a 5 day course to the Moto GP at Phillip Island in October. I'll try to catch Midnight Oil somewhere.

Many ways of killing this particular cat, Robert: my preferred route is home to [strong]Armidale[/strong] along the New England Hwy: thence to [strong]Mudgee[/strong]: to [strong]Canberra[/strong]; then to [strong]Lakes Entrance[/strong] via Cooma and the Cann Valley Hwy (great riding that): then to PI, or (in my case) Melb.    Enjoy!

I went exploring, got lost on a gravel road my GPS knew nothing about, and found this cool old wooden bridge over an irrigation canal... fun day. f5ccafba13ef14ecada2f81e143c379d.jpg

The bike indicated 105 ambient temp when we filled up in Taft from Bitter Creek. We bought a bag of ice to add to our hydration bladders and soaked our base layers in cold water before heading out to 58.
