Hiya Zedman...well I guess Kaz will just have to be quick or her share will be long gone :)

Hey I stuffed up the dates....that's what happens when ya in a hurry. We are in on the Sunday the 22nd Ferry, it gets in at 7pm but it'll take half an hour to get off. We are at the Fornby on the waterfront there.....I reckon you won't get lost. Not to sure when the close for beers or drinks. Monday we are in Strahan, Tuesday Hobart, Wed in Ross, Thursday in St Helens and Friday we are on the overnight ferry back to Melbourne....packed full of crays :) see what you can do but if we can catch up for some local advice that'd be nice. If Kaz comes maybe we can call it the first BK official Tassie meeting??

Hi there - yes we will all have to keep in touch. Ive been out on the
Ducati a few times but on the back. We have a Triumph Tiger now too - and that gets most of the work as its very comfortable. In fact my riding companion and I are going out tomorrow. The Duc has about 1000km on the clock now. I'm going to be down in Melbourne just as soon as I can arrange it - to see a friend in Ballarat. Will let you know when that happens.

Cheers
Lyn

Hey guys
im over in north america freezing cold, but despite the cold and the fact that all the motorbikes are off the road due to the weather, it is still an enjoyable place to be. Im off to the west coast in a few days and other parts of the americas. So ill say farewell and see you all on the flip side. Be back soon xx


the cold must be a hell of a shock to the system after the heat of the NT,
hope you have a wonderfull and safe trip. if your ever passing through Vic be sure to give us a call

Yeah, had a go at Kaz for not taking the camera, and extra few pics will have been a bonus - I'll have my camera when I get to Tassie if you want?? I even have a range of ugly filters - hey they work for me!
....I don't mind anything with two wheels - I'm not that dyed in the wool on marques...but I do love my HD and the Bimma. Hmmm but they do need to be registered :) thanks anyway!

Ok, I'm with 3 mates and we are on the day ferry into Devonport next Saturday night...we are at a pub but not sure which one yet - let you know. Then there is Brumby's for breakfast on Sunday am before we depart for Strahan via Dove Lake - so you and Kaz could drop in for a beer Saturday or breaky Sunday if you have time?

Bad experience with a cray, wot? Git outta here?? Couldn't have had enough beer with it?
