Road conditions
« on: 04.09. 2018 15:34 »
Seeing pictures from around the world, one thing I notice is a lack of sand and gravel on the roads.

 I think there are way fewer "clean" corners and roads where I live than ones full of pea gravel. I think its gotten way worse in the last 5 or so years.

G'day Lee.
You obviously ridden around here after a big rain! In general yes our roads down here aren't too bad with high crowns and hard dirt edges, they stay reasonably clean. Just after road works is a bit dicey with excess roadbase lying around.
Cheers
