    I've done the top part once and the bottom part twice. There is a short section of unsealed road about 1 or 2 k's on the bottom part. When I went through a few months ago it was in very good condition. The rest is all sealed and a great ride. I bit bumpy in some sections but not too bad. You'll enjoy it.
    Cheers, stay safe and do it now or you'll be that much older when you do, and if it feels good - do it

    Great road, just watch out for the wildlife. I lived in Denman for a few years and my folks were over in Bathurst so I've done the trip many times. Not sure where the dirt section is (roadworks?), it was sealed all the way when I used to ride it.
    Keep Calm and Chive On!!!

    I also travelled that road last year. Good road to ride on but a lot of dead animals on the sides of the road, meaning there will be others waiting to jump out on you. Probably best not to go at sunrise or near sunset when the critters are at their worst.

    I done it about two weeks ago. All sealed road. Its a good ride.
    Yes watch for wild life. Pick your time carefully to ride it.
    From Bathurst myself.

    Bit of an under statement, I rode those routes last September it was a cracker of a ride.

    If you decide to head over towards the coast J.D., would love to catch up and say g'day. Might even show you some nice little roads ...
    I like days when I have no where to go and all day to do get there.
