Nowhere near Sydney at all "LEGALLY"

Kurnell Menai even down the Gong and Nowra is out, Not sure about Stockton Beach... but in the metro area forget it...

Maybe contact Motorcycling Australia in Parramatta, they Might be able to help with some suggestions on clubs and shiat...

Hey Volvo, nup not much legal except for one riding park near Dural or Parra? Cant remember it was a fair while ago, maybe Paradise Park or somefin. I think they had a big block which was OK with a caravan park as well.
I remember it as being OK not expensive for a visit but I prefer a change of scenery so ride regsterable bikes instead.
Also is Mudgee close to Sydney? Check out Louee
What r u riding?

G'Day volvofh12,
There is a dirt bike park/track at Appin ( near Campbelltown ) that used to let quads run there. I used to take my son and his quad there ages ago. Not sure what their doing/allowing these days. Might be worth checking out.
Regards,
Bazza.

Macarthur park you mean??

I heard it closed ages ago, houses moved in and like Amaroo park, they won their arguement to close the "Offensive noise" place...

Move next to an airport, and you know it, you dont complain.

Part of Stockton beach is legal for ATV's and quads, but not all. The rest is for registered vehicles only. I can't remember which end it is, I think south, but you shoud be able to get some info from one of the local tourist info centres. Just be sure to check out where the boundary line on the beach is so you stay legal.

I did an organised tour on quads on stockton and I must admit it was a total blast. On your own bike it would be even better.

The Middle section of Stockton is legal for non registered vehicles (ie access from Lavis Lane.)

The access from Anna Bay end is for registered vehicles only.

What type of quad do you have? Im looking for one now, but dont know. Honda's have a good rep, looking for an ag type, thought it might be more appropriate.
What would you recomend?

Mick,

Sorry about the delay, Ive got a 300cc Suzuki King quad with 4wd and diff locks, payed $3000 for it second hand, 95 model. It goes anywhwere within reason of course....have been to Meni and Heathcote.... Also have a friend with a Honda full time 4wd which he paid Ten thousand dollars for. Have also hired quads for stockton beach and did have a blast.. When you own your own you can actually register it for about $200 a year.

I would recomend a suzuki king quad only because you can change from 2wd to 4wd with ease, but i couldnt fault the honda either, just the $7000 difference between new and used which can do the same thing when maintained.

Would be glad to keep talking quads if you like you can email me at volvofh12h@hotmail.com.

I don't know were you can ride them legally.
I'm lucky I suppose because I use one for work.
I have had Honda's. First had a 2wd 300. Great in dry weather but as soon as it rained was nearly easier to walk. Had a perpanent 4wd which was good but a bit heavy in the steering. Then had a selectable 4wd. Both 450'S. The selectable 4WD was best. Fairly expensive new I think around $15000 at the moment.

Aword of warning. The reason I have had 3 and now onto my 4th is that all the previouse ones have been stolen. So if you buy one second hand PLEASE check that it isn't stolen and be prepared to sleep with it in your bed room as it is nearly the only way you can be sure that it will be there in the morning.
The last one was stolen out of a locked shipping container.
We now park a huge earth moving machine in front of the container so if they want this one they will have to oxy cut the side out which I am sure is how the next one will go.
Just have to make it so hard they will steal some one elses instaed of mine.
Terry
