My brother Tim and I thought about joining you guys, but only briefly. It's a bloody long ride from the bottom end of Tassie, not to mention the cost of getting across Bass Strait.
I reckon I'll save my travel budget for the Phillip Island Classic in January.

Enjoy the ride and stay safe guys.

Cheers,

Wish I could come, have fun. BTW the real tricky bit isnt the river, its the right turn and step down to the riverbank close to the road especially leaving when the river crossing water dripping off the bikes and wets that climb. That's not so easy when it's wet. Ask Doug R. All part of the fun.

Dougee  8) spent a bit of time by the riverbank and in BKs shed searching for some nuts and bolts to send DOUG on his way!
Has a great story to tell!
Good luck to one and all on the ride and festivities. Have a blast  ;)

Marty check the bushfire app closer to the weekend, the Waterfall Way was closed yesterday because of the fire near Armadale and the weather report for the long weekend is mid-30s up here. Armadle 28c on the weekend.
