    I don't have my map so I can't give you the highway number but it's the big one that is on the east side of the lake/swamp. Can't miss it.

    This is a newly paved highway and is easy on the tyres. The road is flat and boring with the occasional wide turn.
    BE CAREFUL of idiots in hiluxes doing 150. Also be aware that these people aren't used to motorbikes going over 60. They frequently cut you off, push you off the road and pull out in front of you. The last 75ks of this road is the most dangerous road for traffic I've ridden on to date.

    The road is in good nick but when the occasional pothole comes along, it'll be big enough to swallow your front wheel. Don't follow too closely in the last 75ks!

    I also nearly hit a brick and was overtaken by a bus doing about 140-150 whilst riding past roadworks. Stay alert on this road.
