Hello Taswegian Riders & Visitors,

###Links to Tassie riding info below###

Being of the slow kind and not always up with modern technology (like dial up connection instead of broadband, or 2nd hand DR650 instead of a new Husky or whatever), methought that it'd help me if we had a Tassie Riders thread. Only one place to go to and look if I'm short of time or brain-space.

Purpose would be to organise little trips, point to where big trips are organised and reports can be found, find out what Tassie riders are on ADVrider, exchange info about good or bad deals, and whatever ...

Does this idea have a future?

May just start this thread and see if it leads anyhere? ... Darwinian theory at its best ...


:-) a.

All my tracks are on RidewithGPS:
http://ridewithgps.com/users/64712/activities
(easiest to click on "list view" option up the top)

When you click on a track, a preview appears down the bottom and there are links there to download the GPX or KML files(for google earth)...

Or, when you view a route, like:
http://ridewithgps.com/trips/1234135
click on the "export" tab up the top right, it opens a panel where you can download the files...

Or, where I've embedded the ridwithGPS maps in forum posts, click on "view full route" to open them, and use the above method...

I've been pretty slack with ride reports, (there's a bit of stuff in the links at the bottom of the post), but I've generally written a brief bit in this thread about most rides, not easy to find unless you flick over the last 100+ pages... This google search brings up a lot of them:
https://www.google.com.au/search?num....0.9_oe6T0xffs
When I've posted a route, check the following couple of pages for more pics, vids, and random drivel.. (I try to post a bit in here to keep the thread ticking along)

Eventually I'll bundle all the GPS files into a downloadable collection to make it easy, I just haven't had the time or enthusiasm yet... :P

If you have any questions about specific areas/routes/tracks I've posted about, feel free to ask... Almost everything I've done shouldn't be an issue to do on WRR's (which I why I bought one)

:)
more to come when I happen to come across them ...

Mellow Camping Escape to Lime Bay 14-15 April

Justin (Lemming #2, red DL650) and me are thinking about a mellow camping overniter at Lime Bay Sat/Sun 14-15 April.

Lime Bay is north of Saltwater River on Tas Peninsula at the end of an easy dirt road. Free camping and fires permitted. Need to bring water.

Meet at Richmond Bakery Sat 12.30 for a pie and ride from there or catch us at Lime Bay.

Anyone else interested?

:-) a.

Count me in, I am off to Bicheno for the show and shine on Friday night, a ride down the dirt to Copping on Saturday will be pleasant.

Won't organise a meeting at a pub this time

I go back to work the next weekend, so a good escape will be welcome.

Dirt from Orford ... whatever turns you on, may see me in on this one too, plodding at the back of course! ... I'm not particularly fixed on the idea of everyone riding together all the time. If it should happen that different grouplets want to go different directions and/or different paces than I'm all for it (good old Boolean Logic bastardised here Fuddy ;-) ) ... as long as at least some look out for each other and there are some agreed 'catching/meeting up' places ...

Clear as mud?

;-) a.

OK here's my take on the idea. Great for putting it up as we need ideas, but I don't think single issue threads work. You can't tell, without opening the whole thread if a new post if about something new, or just an addition to an old suggesting that you are not interested in. Much better to have a separate thread for each ride, with the ride destination and date clearly in the title. That way you can ignore threads on rides that you can't go on, and just read the relevant ones.

I get over the bandwidth problems by setting up a search that just shows threads that have new posts in the Asia/Oz/Kiwi forum since the last time I was here. Then I saved this, and this is what opens up, instead of just the normal Forum. I skim down to see if there are any threads that I'm interested in that have new text, or if there are any new threads I car read them as well if the title gets my interest.

Just my 2c

Did you know

Well I just thougt I would do a quick advert.

This is not to take anything away from AR but I have just started a new forum purely for Tasmanian Riders. It will not matter what style of riding you are into Tasmania Motorbike Riders (TMR) will have a home for you. We are very new and looking for all members of the Tasmanian riding community to help out with questions and answers... It will make it much easier to communicate with fellow Tasmanian Riders as the forum is going to be completely Tasi Based... Anything goes but the origin is Tasmania and its riders

I hope you will give us a look in...
