    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 ... :ear

    Does this idea have a future? :confused

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

    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.

    PS: A few pics below.

    Looking good from here ... will just have to do a few more chores this weekend to get the brownie points up.

    Which way were you thinking of going from Richmond Andeas? What time were you expecting to get to the campsite?

    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

    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 :huh

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

    ... sorry for no reply in a while ...

    ... just back from 4 days navel gazing at some northern hippie place ;-) ...

    Which way? ... any suggestions? ... nuthing that a map and a few blokes (any sheilas?) over a pie at Richmond Bakery Sat 12.30 couldn't fix I guess ...

    What time at camp? ... dunno either ... whatever people who want to ride together feel comfy with I guess ... haven't spoken to Mr J (Lemming #2) about this in a while, but my guess is that him & me wouldn't mind being there by 4 latest ... he's got important things to do ... letting the red breathe being one of them ...

    Hello Ian,

    Nice to hear from you & welcome!

    Looks like you've got a KLR250? (your profile, or am I confused as usual) ... my other dream bike!

    At least 2 ADVriders with DR650s in Southern Tas, me & Andree on Bruny (whatever his ADVrider name).
