Well better late then never aye! The initial convo with damedi went something like this: 'What you up to during Chrissy and New Year bud?' 'Bugger all, what about you?' 'Yeah same, jack shit.........wanna go riding somewhere for a few days?' 'Absolutely...........Tassie?' 'Hell yeah, lets do it!' And so it was done and on New Years Day 2016 damedi and I set off on a mission to ride the twistiest of the twisty roads that Australia has to offer. Now Im not real good at writing so I wanted to make a video montage of the trip, which I started way back in January, but I got too elaborate and it became a very time consuming experience so I lost interest in the project........until now. I recently got inspired to have another crack at it as we have a trip planned in early December that will see me travel some of the roads we rode on the Tassie trip. I kept it simple this time and over a few nights managed to create a 3 part series, all around 11 - 12min long, covering 11 days of riding with some music I like as a soundtrack. If you can, watch it in HD. Makes the scenery look pretty good as my camera (Ion Pro 2) isn't the best in quality. Hope you enjoy it! Part 1 This covers the first 4 days which includes the trip to VIC, a day in the VIC high country and a couple of days in Tassie. The Bonang was interesting, a fairly decent thunderstorm had blasted through and left debris everywhere with the northern third of the road mostly affected. Its was dry from halfway to Orbost and then we bumped into another storm heading to Bairnsdale and we got drenched. The highlight of this part was Day 2 heading up through Hotham. The clouds were flowing over the ridge like a wave breaking and I almost felt like a surfer riding through it! It was amazing and the vid doesn't do it justice. Part 2 This covers 4 days in Tassie. We basically rode the island clockwise and this one starts in Hobart and finishes on the boat heading back Melbourne. There were a few highlights in this Part. Day 5 was the trip to Gordon Dam, amazing scenery along that stretch of road. Day 6 was probably the winner. Hobart to Strahan is a trip every motorcyclist needs to do. Such varied types of roads and scenery, the rolling plains and sweeping roads of the Bothwell area, popping out of the forest at Lake Burbury literally takes your breath away, and the technical super tight decent into Queenstown. Awesome x1000! Part 3 This covers the final part of the trip that includes 2 days playing on VIC's finest roads and the final day home through the Snowies. First up apologies for the poor pic quality on Day 10 (GOR and surrounds). It got a bit dusty and I forgot to clean the lens, which is a shame. A couple of highlights here and Day 11 was, dare I say it, the best 'riding' day of the lot! Considering we just did 6 days of Tassie that is saying something. I like technical twisty roads and Reefton - Marysville, Eildon - Jamison, Mansfield - Whitfield, Tawonga Gap and Granya Gap are some of the best Ive ever ridden and the weather was perfect. The other highlight was the following morning, early start out of Corryong led to an amazing scene with the low sun and mountains in the background, epic! Alpine way wasn't too shabby either.
