Hi Anna

I'm coming to Tasmania in December, and was wondering if I could ask you a few questions?

I don't have enough posts to PM you (just joined), so if you could drop me an email to let me know if I can get in touch, it'd be great!

Hi Tanya, I'll be touring Tassie in a few weeks and will hopefully catch up with Annisa in Hobart. You can check my blog here Fab's Motorcycle Trip to Tasmania not much there yet obviously.

Hi Guys,

you all seem to have riding knowledge of Tasmania, i hope you dont mind if I pick your brains a bit...

A few of us have planned to go riding in Tasmania for about 10 days from the 18th of December 2010 onwards. We are competent riders, and have done a two month, 18,000kms journey around Australia (The Hard Way Round). We plan to be riding WR 250's and 450's and be completely self sufficient - we are happy to camp. We have heard many comparisons between the East Coast and the West Coast, and we have been told by many to avoid the West Coast due to the rain and mud.

Could you please give us some more information? If we have 10 days, what would be the best route?

Looking forward to hearing from you - Jonny

well, in 10 days you can easily do the whole loop. It's always good once you arrive in Devonport to check out the weather and if it's decent do the West first. It does rain more but it is SO worth it.
I would aim for Stanley, Arthur River, down the Western Explorer to Corinna, Zeehan, Strahan, Queenstown, Dewent Bridge, Hobart, Tas Peninsula and up the East coast from there.
There are HEAPS of dirt options along the way but the tarmac is pretty amazing as well.
