    Dansey’s Pass runs from Kurow on SH83 through to Naseby, near Ranfurly on SH85. The road winds over an alpine pass almost reaching 1000m in altitude. Road surface is usually firm and is pretty good condition, though it is quite windy.

    I’ve run the Danseys race half a dozen times now on knobbly and road tyres 😉

    The last time I was there I saw a KTM990 Superduke, Triumph Tiger XC and Aprilia RVX550 all playing like Drift Superstars almost side by side at the Duntroon end. There were three parallel lines where gravel had been sprayed on almost every corner!
    I’m told that the rider on the Triumph ‘had to do’ 165kph on the straights to even see the little Aprilia toward the Naseby end.
    I believe at least 3 Star 555 calls were made that day.

    On the same trip I had to pull over to let some dick towing a boat get past. He was hogging the road and refused to give way but hey, size matters and my protests would have been pretty stupid had I ended up in the gully below

    Keep an eye on weather when crossing.
