A30 at Yarcombe

Is sweeeet!

It's a nice stretch of road anyway but the twisties at Yarcombe had a very poor surface and thus was more suited to dirt bikes... :shock:
Well it's mostly all been resurfaced now and looks as smooth as european highway. :D

I'll probably try it out tomorrow but just thought I'd give you guys a "heads up" for if you're out and about this weekend and near the area.

Also beware that there are generally lots of dirt patches around from where the farmers have all decided to come out play with their tractors. :roll:

I was out there Sunday. It is very smooth but I can never be sure on that brand new black stuff whether its dry or not.

Yeh, my Mrs made a similar comment, but just feared it might be slippery when wet, and not in Bon Jovi way..

The way I see it, we've probably got a about 6 months before they dig a trench in it to install a broadband cable... or something like that. :mrgreen:
