Default Wouldn't Be Dead for Quids Tour of Tassie 09

AKA Thank F@ck I Wasnt on a Sports Bike Tour of Tassie 09

14 days,
5000km,
11G of photos,
1 dummy spit,
6 pick ups of the Strom,
3 pierced Nipples
and
1 Rottweiler with a foot fetish..

Now that's is what I call touring

This ride report could take longer than the trip, so strap in.

Day 1 (Thurs)

Nothing much to report for Day 1, just the ferry trip from Melbourne to Devonport, its a 12hr overnighter

here is a very average time lapse on the ferry boarding



the Westgate Bridge from the ferry


there is supppsoe to be life rafts in there



it played a deep symphony



Station Pier and Melbourne in the background

Day 2 (Fri)

We had to be in Hobart for the Friday Night for Fleur's Birthday Weekend (FBW), a annual tradition for expat Victorian Fleur (TwinGirl) birthday. Its a weekend of drinking, drinking and more drinking, pole dancing, comparing nipple rings and general drunken stuff... I "think" I got to bed about 3am, a 22hr day with over 500km of riding as well. I awoke about 11am to a 40kg Rottweiler (Bronsan) licking my feet, who was I to argue, it felt good.... is that wrong?
