Tour of Tasmania
« on: October 09, 2009, 05:00:34 am »
Doing a ride around Tasmania in the early new year.
Will be riding 1200k's plus off roading where we can.
Mate rides a Vstrom 1000 and I'm taking my XT660R.
Planning on camping along the way, we are only in the planning stages at the moment.
Will post pics after the trip.

Was in Tassie about 3 weeks ago (yip its a long long way from South Africa) but my brother lives in Melbourne so its a quick 1 hour flight from there.  Couldn't believe that I only saw 1 BMW 1200GSA touring around in the week that I was there, crazy, that place is like DS biker heaven. Am jealous, you're going to have an absolute blast.

Ah, but Tasmania isquite sparsely populated. Besides that, September is still winter there  :D I rode around Tassie for three weeks in November and hardly met any bikers - except for Hobart. But I agree whole-heartedly: It's a great biking area, albeit bloody cold at times  :disgust:
Only when we pause to wonder
do we go beyond the limits of our little lives.
