I think if I came across one of those six trailer road trains I'd decide it was time to pull over for an hour to have coffee and a rest somewhere off the side of the road. :yesnod:Yep there big Ock the ones I don't like are the single flat beds with concrete pipes loaded laterally across the trailer they throw the meanest wake from about 100 metres back and try to blow you arse over when along side,I get a good run up on those buggers-:yikes:
I would NOT take one of those on-the trailers do the odd sidestep-I'm with you Ock get the thermos and the vegemite sanga out.:yesnod:I think if I came across one of those six trailer road trains I'd decide it was time to pull over for an hour to have coffee and a rest somewhere off the side of the road. :yesnod:
That would give him a good gap on me so I could ride along in clear air and not risk having to overtake it. :fineprint:
Gidday Tone,how are things on the isle,have seen a few lads pull up next to a stock carrier at the lights with very smelly results,should be in the riding manwell of not to do--"I'm not going to sit behind a semi at the lights"--:green_lol:I followed one of these on my outback Odyssey, should have stopped for the coffee and sanga as there is a tendency for liquid manure to flow downhill on the up hill stretches!!!!!!!
Yeah, sure you would. :fineprint:On the V, on an open road, would be no problem. Just time it right, gun it and you would be around it in 2 Sec! No Problem. I've passed four cars, going about 60, on an open road at one time just by down shifting and turnin' the throttle.
A couple of years ago I drove from Sydney to Adelaide (about 1400km) via the Mid Western Highway. I didn't see a copper until I got to the outskirts of Adelaide.They don't worry about cops out there because there are virtually none to police such vast areas.
:green_lol: ... tell'm Ock.Yeah, sure you would. :fineprint:
10 miles [16km] away is plenty of time to get well off the road and boil the Billy for a cuppa before the road train arrives. :thumbup::green_lol: ... tell'm Ock.
I doubt he's ever traveled a 2 lane highway that's barely wide enough for 2 18 wheelers to pass each other in opposite directions with tons of powdered dust on each side of the road for hundreds of miles. Unless it's changed since 1970, that's what the Stuart highway was like 'tween Alice Springs and Darwin. You knew a road train was coming from at least 10 miles away.
