Tassie is probably the best place in Australia to ride a motorcycle or scooter.
If you are riding in Tassie this summer, be aware that:
- the roads are subtly different to mainland roads. Take time to adjust.
- The weather can change quickly, particularly on the west coast.
- The car drivers behave slightly differently, often because they are international tourists with low skills, rubber necks and conditioning to be on the wrong side of the road.
- Beware road kill. There's wildlife on the roads as well as in the pubs.
This excellent map/leaflet is available free on the ferry. Use it.
Ride safe and enjoy this very special Australian state.
