    trucked 3 bikes from Perth/Melbourne, onto the ferry and did this exact trip over 14 days, only we went to Stanley, (a waste of time) as well...absolutely loved it...heaps of twistys every where, then rode back across the Nullabour. All up took a month
                                                                JUST DO IT !

    I did this route with the missus over 5 days starting Boxing Day last year. Was fucking unreal.
    Some thoughts:
    • East coast was great (but bloody windy!).
    • Originally had planned to go further north but had a flat tyre heading to Wineglass Bay so lost most of a day (were on a deadline). Cut across Waratah Creek Forest Reserve etc. Glad we did – was great road.
    • Weather scuppered plans to go from Cradle mountain out through Queenstown. Need to get back and see that part. I suspect it’s awesome. Ended up going south down the guts via Deloraine, Oatlands etc. Nice but a bit dull compared to the rest.
    • If I did it again, I’d definitely be looking for local knowledge. We planned it all ourselves and could have done better with some inside tips.
    • I hired a bike down there. Bad move.
    • Expect bad weather. We had freezing winds/rain and blistering sun within 24hrs.
    • 5 days wasn’t enough. Would do twice that with some off-bike days mixed in.
    • Everyone in Tassie gets a water view ;-)
    • Do it!

    You could have her brother

    Would be a better option for both of you

    done Tassie four times, first time in the 80's, first time slept on beach"s & camped out, never had any food with us. one day I think had to go a long way to find a place to eat. but last time I was down there all changed . Always had a great time down there!!
    Make sure you time it to hit Hobart while Sal markets are on! 
    I've done trip around it in three day's, but you need a lot more time to see it all, one trip I spent 6 weeks, but still have not seen everything.
    climbed to top of lake Skinner in old days ( took a while!! ) cost me $3 to camp on one beach up east coast, the money was for hot shower. but right down the south camping was free. ( probably changed )

    Be too far for trailer boy! What are they off, Ralph? Worst part of standard Heritage bags is the small opening to access the interior of the bags. These look like they are square all the way round. Taking them to Edenhope?
