Tasmania's west coast is a rugged place. Relatively unpopulated, it's a landscape shaped by wild winds and frequent rainfall. It's one of few places here where you can ride or drive on the beaches. Plenty of soft sand and river crossings. I thought it was about time I organised a ride to go there on my DR350. I suggested it to a friend who has been there many times. He rides a postie bike. His friends ride postie bikes and quads. Soon there were 4 postie bikes and 2 quads going. Now I was the odd one out. :huh After the long transport section to Granville Harbour, the real ride begins, straight away into the beachside tracks: The weather was cold, wet and very windy. I got wet feet on the first waterhole and soon forgot about the weather, I was having too much fun! How to make a DR350 seem like a huge power monster - go riding with Honda CT110's. It wasn't long before the first river crossing: Some of the CT110's ignitions didn't like water. Out the other side.
