    one lap of Tassie is easy ?
    we do a Lap of the Map in a day
    or go longer, different roads, and more scenery over a couple of days
    wouldn't call it easy either way

    Magnum, I had never heard of Andy Gerding before.
    I suspect you have summed him up rather well.
    Also agree it is no easy feat doing a complete ride around the map in a day, I never have. But I have a daily beer handicap. Heck! 3 days is better if you like swilling piss in pubs and meeting locals while your at it.

    Yeah Bloo, I think they are talking about a different lap of the map lol

    Tassie is certainly a place any biker should go, the roads were designed for bikes, especially 99 bends coming up out of Queenstown.

    Loved riding Vic/ Tasmania, the roads were built some time ago by Motorcycle engineers.
    T'was paid to ride around the beautiful Isle, building Comms structures, for the man.. 6 Guys, hand picked, I was one of them for our... baboom motorcycle enthusiasm.
    Me. MotoGuzzi Mk 4/5
    Mario Motoguzzi 850 Mk 1
    Col Ducati old case 750
    Oatsie Ducati 900 SS old blue silver
    Spud 1000 Komandsuckme
    And finally Captain Kaos my dear mate, 
    HD Shovel, but decided the 600 Honda was more viable, plus could use the Troopie, for new fam.,  as we were all motorcyclists, aye..
    Now that was one hell of a trip round Tassie on the Weekends, we will never forget.
    Went to pub paddock the whole shebang, what a trip.Capitained someone's Shark cat outta  Hells gates and back( I was only one worked on cray boat WA) and that was a temperate, rough day, could see the VB outta cans going up from anyway which. All safe what a beautiful Island, Flinders, and others had the pleasure of working on, my god is whatever your god is country.. South is one beautiful place, but the secret is blown, long time ago.
    Fucken beautiful, but fucken cold for us desert dwellers, good for you.

    True, nothing is easy! and a lot of out of the way places to go to!! I've been fortunate to cover a lot of Tassie & some wilderness on foot. I was just saying in general it's a lot smaller than the Mainland & temperatures & weather conditions a lot different. it's easier now than first time I did a lap.

    Got the ferry, over on the 17th may, back on the 24th.
    Wendy and I, each on our bikes, most likely do Pt Arthur-Hobart area, Cadbury factory tour if they do it then wing it
    Accomodation will probably wing that as well, then we can be a little free with “getting there”

    Will have a look between now with and then

    Good for you mate.
    Make sure you pack your woolly underbritches, thermal gloves and hyperthermic tonics/remedies etc for mid May.
    You will be able to wing it no problems re accommodation.
    Me and 3 mates wung it last weekend for 2 nights, people are not confident enough yet to holiday on mass so the usual tourist bonanza is leaner than usual.

    Me and the hand brake went on a ghost tour at the old penal colony at night, the misses dared me to hang back in one of the cells were men had hung themselves. I tried but the tour gets you so hyped up, I was shiting my self couldn't do it.
    Spooky place and great history
