We should send down some of our Fishers. They're nastly bastards. Prob not as mean as Tassie's, but pretty fierce. Live up here in the NE and Canada, but you all are welcome to them.

I travelled with one other bike on both trips, but met up with riders on the ferry. Helps that you pretty much all load up at the same time at the same place with the bikes... good chance to say g'day to the other riders. Ask around, you'll probably find others doing the same or similar routes that you can join, if you so desire.

Enjoy! I'm jealous now...

How are you planning your accommodation? I just camped off the bike - tent, sleeping bags, hiking food, etc. Didn't pay for a single place in the whole 10 days - all free camping.

forsythem You'll love it. I've done Tassie twice on bikes, both times were 10 days long. Your itinerary looks exactly like my last one, so I can't recommend anything else. My last one was about 10 years ago, though, but I doubt anything much has changed down there. Awesome place for riding.

Fair amount of animals out on dusk - try to avoid riding as it's getting dark. I had a couple of close calls.
