When I drove the highway I always sat on 130kph. Work Toyota, my troopy or motorbikes.  I found I concentrated a hell of a lot more than when I did on 100kph. Even when cruising on my motorbike it was 130kph.  Often had to overtake slower vehicles but once again your awareness is a great deal more than sitting on a mind numbing 100kph.

Amen to that one, I lived in Europe for a while and love cruising down the motorways at speed, it is a great experience, everyone is alert, lots of caution used, and there are real government stats showing few bad prangs, compared to our terrible M1 here on the Gold Coast for eg.

Ummmmm?
Not the best to be honest, I basically bought a truck that can do what a $150,000 worth can do for $50,000, thinking I am still young and bullet proof, so I can fix it all up easy.
Well it seems I am not as capable as i was once upon a time. I have spent nearly every weekend sorting it out since April. Now, near completion, I am looking to possibly sell it.
The truck it self, I Mitsubishi Fuso is great with almost a million k's on it and still going strong averaging 25 litres per 100 km weighting 20 tonne all up, but the deck was ruined which I have almost fixed. That's the bit I am struggling with.
Good bit is, I can see the end of the tunnel and am almost there.
Then, back to camping..... ;D

There’s a blitz set up right now on Creek Rd in Brissy (opposite side of the road, just up from Bunnings/Cannon Hill shops).

Looks like so far they have done 2 rangers and a navara for modifications.
All 3 are parked up with lifts and bigger tyres.

They should be good.  We all know that its impossible to drive on dirt roads without a 4inch lift and 35 inch tyres.... :D

Funny that, I was following a navara on the highway not long after passing this blitz.
This ute was easy lifted 4 to 5 inches.
I was wondering what the strange noise was that I could hear as we drove along.... then I realized it was his CVs screaming in agony.... :D

that's standard operational procedure here in Qld...the one thing I notice straight away when leaving Qld and going over the border, is just how much higher the Police visual presence is.

Same here in Vic, but they are spending more $$ on unmarked cars.. no money to be made from people who see a cop car and check their speed.

They're getting BMW's for the Traffic Blokes in Victoria nowadays. 
So they're out there, you've just gotta look harder to see 'em.
While your lookin' for Police Cars and Camera Cars, you miss the stuff that really matters.

don't need to look for them. It doesn't matter if your not doing the wrong thing.

Heading up the Bruce Hwy to Gympie today I noticed up north of Cooroy where there is a truck checking area the transport inspectors along with police had setup and had a dual cab ( think newish Navara) pulled over and a jack under the front right wheel.

 I don't think they were helping change a flat tyre.

Good stuff.  should be double what they test now.  Still too many pissed/drugged or texting drivers on the road.
