Trip Report: Tasmania, Lime Bay (or ... VTX1800 as ADV off-roader?)

Just finished a veeeery nice trip on the East Coast of Tasmania with overnite camp at Lime Bay.

The cast of characters included at various times:
Daniel 'Nothing to see here',
Jim 'lout',
Daz 'That Aussie Guy',
Justin '#nonADV#',
Mark 'FuddyLogic',
Middi 'Middi',
Stuart '#notyetADV#',
Andy 'Andy-Gadget',
Pam '#nonADV,and_ex_rider#',
Andreas 'DonQx'

The ride was organised at the 'hopefully to be of continued use' thread 'Tasmanian Riders Hub' at http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=218696&page=4.

Haven't got my pics fully organised yet, but should get some up within the next 12 hours.

Fuddy, Dan ... u're on-line and faster than me ... how 'bout if you go first?

:-) a.

I meet the others on Saturday at Lime bay, had to go north initially and came back down the east coast.

This is the Wielangta road from Orford down to Copping.


Setting up camp at Lime bay, 42 57.370S, 147 42.282E


Usefull things, funduros, BMW thought of everything


Doing it tough


Deciding where to go the next morning


"Nothing to see here" leaving the site


"DonQx" and Justin


"Fuddy"


Side track to Slopen main beach, a particulaly nice part of the world


"Fuddy" couldn't resist the hard sand beach



Locked gate stops play



Tryed another way, another locked gate


Time for coffee, "Fuddy" rings home


"DonQx" doing it tough


Pirates bay from lookout at 43 01.926S, 147 55.113E


The adventure bikes, some less suitable for the job than others

Ahhh ... Andy's heaps faster than anyone else ...

Ta for the nice pics!

Being a luddite and all that sort of stuff, including a slow dial-up connection, it'll take me a while to get anything up ...

;-) a.


Here's the first ...

G'Day gm,

definitely a custom job ... includes a platform for latte & expresso making, and a tripod with rack for camp fire (as far as I can remember) ... only a few hundred little iron sticks welded together ... Andy is a bit obsessed with triangulation (among other things) ... can't find a close up pic right now ... maybe someone else has one later ...

:-) a.

G'Day GB,

Wrong way round ... the odd KTM'er and others have been eyeing the VTX ...
