Agreed, GREAT shots!

Jocob's Ladder just sits in a highly impressive and engaging setting... the road itself could be done on a roadie with road-hoops, 2-up (better know what you're doing though, but it's not that difficult).
It's just impossible to uncouple the road from the surrounds....and we all know: you'll go where ya lookin'. There's the "tricky" part with Jacob's Ladder.

Day 7

A minor mutiny meant we went to an Italian restaurant rather than the usual diet of Tasmanian sea food. You could tell it was Italian because Deano was there


Day 8

Stopped at or at least near the geographical centre of Tasmania


Lunch at Bronte Park


The joys of the Great Lakes road with heavy trucks loaded with road fill travelling in convoy at around 100kph




The happiest person in Tasmania. She had ridden from Queensland for the Black Dog ride and was travelling around Tasmania by herself prior to heading north again.

Coming down off the Western Tiers


I got the feeling it had been some time since the last train had run through Mole Creek


Real ADV rider food - Toasted brie and smoked salmon with red onion sandwich (he rides a GSA you wouldn't really expect anything else anyway).

A last look at Mt Roland


and any suggestion that my choice of the wine to accompany the Pizzas was influenced by either navigational issues or cultural heritage will be hotly denied.

Ta.

No tickets yet.
I have to go to a conference in Perth in two weeks and somehow that has morphed into a week in the Margaret River area with Janice beforehand. Not sure how that happens.
Bike riding will have to wait till the holiday season is over and it cools down again.
