Rhetorical question.........what do you do when you run a trip to Tassie for 14 friends in 2007 (Tasfest 2007 - Lapping the Map) ?? you have so much damm fun that you just have to do the whole thing again 2 yrs later !! :grin: So assembled on the dock to start the madness again were: Scumbag - Ducati ST2 Mrs Scumbag - Ducati S2R Chairman - MV Brutale Deyago - Tuono Mel - VFR800 Dimi - Monster 695 Jarrah - Ducati 900DS Darmah Black Betty - SV 650S G - Ducati 1000S Monster Trinity - Monster 600 As you can note there was a plethora of Italian bikes in the group & for some weird reason we are all riding bikes that are either red, black or red & black......colour coded !! Made for some very cool group shots (see later posts) Basic itinary ran: Day 1 - Launceston Day 2 - Launceston to Swansea via Scottsdale Day 3 - Swansea to Port Arthur Day 4 - Port Arthur to Hobart Day 5 - Hobart (Strathgordon Run) Day 6 - Hobart to Launceston via Bothwell & Poatina Day 7 - Launceston (rest day) Day 8 - Launceston to Sheffield via Cethana & some back roads Day 9 - Sheffield (Run to Smithton & Dismal Swamp) Day 10 - Sheffield to Cradle Mountain via Reece Dam Day 11 - Cradle Mountain Day 12 - Cradle Mountain to Devonport via Hellyer Gorge & back roads Some of the group had to head back at the end of day 8 & the remainder stayed for the full 12 days. Max distance travelled around 3100km Weather was awesome for the whole trip - thanks largely to a pre commitment pact from Sunshine Boy (VTRElMarko) who promised to extend his god like control of the weather to include Tasmania while we were there. Further posts, pics & ride comments from the team on the way.
