    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.

    Is the ghost tour at Port Arthur famous for the Martin Bryant shooting or something else  ?

    Wow 😮 ,,, it sounds like a must see if going to Tassie . Since reading about this I googled Martin Bryant and strange case that was  ,  25 years he’s been inside  , and apparently he’s obese and drugged to the eyeballs everyday .

    I was down there in the summer. It was fukin cooking as we rode into  Hobart.
    I needed to take my jaccket off cos it was that fukin hot but I had nowhere to put it so I wrapped it around my bag and strapped it back on the bike.
    Old mate was too hot as well so I ended up with two fukin jackets .
    We were riding over the bridge and I noticed all the car drivers were giving me funny looks.
    My mate pulled up beside me with a big grin on his face and I thought he was just in a good mood.
    But it turned out the way the leather jacket"s  were  strapped on it looked like a dead body was sitting on the back of my bike.
    A dead body without  a head,  we called it the torso.
    We both got a root that night in Hobart but.

    Soap make sure you bring lots of warm gear for May.  We will be starting to get frosts at that time as well so that will have an impact of where you intend to go on the bikes.  Just a warning.

    I saw this episode and I was up there yesterday with the grandkids and daughter.  Such an lovely spot.  The Jacobs Ladder is a bit daunting as there are no safety barriers to talk of.  I don't think I would go up there on a bike though, especially not a Harley, rough road with a fair few potholes.  And one wrong twist of the right hand grip could see you over the edge

    Hey AJ, so good to see a learned friend on the dial again. You old fella, have a wealth of knowledge that I have read over the years, and very much appreciated AJ. Me , I'm just the guy that saw the guys hang em selves and silly stuff as such.
    Rebuilding a 600 Yamaha, and would rather connect with yourself if you had time, than someone who knows how to rope a noose.
    Tasmania is a join t maybe a few should ride over too, new or again, and absorb the goddam beauty of the Isle, unless we get picked off by the FC and Mrs FC for being Mainlanders with the covernant catch 22. I wanta go back but thinking WA has me calling in, which is another most beautiful state.
    I love Australia.
