There's a thread I started in the forum a coupla weeks or so ago on the subject. Progressive is an actual brand name and is used generically. Have a look.

One view of the Snowies from the flats at Geehi Hut. Yessir, that be snow in them thar hills.

There's a mob of 'roos that lay about the paddock, a light aeroplane landing strip from the days when high country cattlemen (of some means), had herds of beasties feeding. They don't seem fussed by motorbikes, 4WDs and caravans rolling past on the gravel track.

The river stone (replacement) Geehi Hut.

Must not be many people from Vic in here, because the best road in the East is the Reefton Spur, from Warburton to Marysville with a quick detour up to lake mountain. I used to attack that almost every weekend, it was my training ground, then from Marysville over the black spur (traffic hell) into Healsville, and out to Toolangi, up to King Lake, down to St Andrew's, and if your bike was capable enough take the shortcut through to Yarra Glen.
What I wouldn't give to have a loop like that around Coffs Harbour. Almost worth moving back to Vic

My aging aunties live in Yarra Glen and Healesville and almost every time I visit them (yearly) it is traffic hell no matter what direction I approach from, nor which road I choose. But, the latte sipping, pink money, Alfa Romeo driving urbanistas do keep the neighbourhood tidy.

I reckon a good road is one you find when no one else is around and no coppers have set up their secret surveillance of you and the air is up your nose and the blood is pumping and your tyres make contact to the edges and you emerge with a smile. That, for me, no contest necessary, defines 'best'.
