Just finished a 2500kms around Tassie staying off the A roads and trying hard for C's or -beter- those fantastic gray-dotted lines without names.

Anyhow, here's a few photos of the bike around that amazing countryside.

South of Corinna:


At the Pieman River:


Southern edge of the Tarkine:


Near Little Pine Lagoon:


Mt. William National Park:


On board the Fatman ferry:


Momentarily misplaced on an unamed road:


At Devil's Gullet track:

Great to see another Tiger enjoying our beautiful State, glad you had a great look around Tassie

I was truly jealous by the wealth of choices you have. Every road seems to fork to more and better choices - twisty bits, farm lanes, gravel, single tracks - pick yer poison! I was crushed to learn Western Explorer was closed to landslip right before I left, but that was about the only disappointment of the whole go.

I've been lucky to ride in a lot of different countries and regions, but Tasmania remains consistently amongst the top. I'm definitely bring the Tiger back to cross-off the WE when it re-opens. ...if only we could get a faster ferry, I'd be there weekly!

My first jaunt on the new Tiger...not nearly long enough. A few tweaks to the ergos, (Rox Risers and Pivot Pegz) and she'll be good to go.
