"Tour of Tassie", late 2018, who would be interested?

Post  Chook on Sun 24 Sep 2017, 11:19 am

First topic message reminder :

.....and when would suit?

I'm keen, would love to do a ride down their, catch up with Barry and Gus in their part of this great country.

It would be great to get enough interest from enough different locations to have a true National Meet again

Needs to be after winter, probably early summer.

For me if we could do it after Uni finishes Kaylah (Dancing Pillion) could keep my pillion seat warm again, that would be first/second week in December


I'm keen to hear (read) others ideas

EDIT
Preferences

October 
2WA

Early November

Late November
Chook (2nd option) - No Dancing Pillion

Early December
Madmax
Chook (1st option) 2up with Dancing Pillion

November or December
Baz

Any of the above

I think you'd need 2, one for you and one for the Bandit Wink

One can feed into two  Idea

Nah, just wait for low tide  Cool

This link might help identify a few good riding roads (although the site seems a bit cumbersome to use):

Just storing this here:
https://motorbikewriter.com/tasmania-great-motorcycles-year/
Over on Netrider there is a Road trips of Tassie PDF link:  Netrider link

Up on the top right of the Netrider screen is the download link:  Rider PDF

This looks like a pretty good resource and is fairly up to date, I've included the link here but not sure if you can open it if not a Netrider user.

Late to the party. Tassy is the only state I have never been to so I would be very interested.

There's been a few new members since the last post here, thought I'd give it a bump to see if there was any new interest.

BTW, barry_mcki, would you ride South with us or would we just catch up at the top of the Island? Gus, what about you? would you do some or all of the ride?

It's still a good 12 months away but that will fly.
