    Im looking to do a Tassie Run some time this year. At this stage looking in October or November or if someone has a trip planned earlier I may tag along. No idea on dates just seeing if anyone is interested in coming along. Would like to head over on the boat on a wednesday or thursday night and come back the following monday or tuesday night. 5 or 6 days of riding. No route planned yet just sending out an expression of interest.
    Cheers :beer:

    Think it's about $350 for the boat return with a bike and no cabin. The rest big guy, would be up to you how much you spend.

    I think from memory I spent around 3k on the Tassie Bound odyssey.
    Or was that $3k on Boags? So long ago.

    Regardless of cost it is a great trip.

    I just did tassie.
    With 22 other bikes and a support car.
    Departed wed night from melb
    Day 1 devonport to strahan
    Day 2 strahan to hobart
    Day 3+4 rest days in hobart and day rides
    Day 5 hobart to st helens
    Day 6 st helens back to devonport.
    Arrive back in Melbs wed morning

    Did around 1500km
    Could do more could do less.
    Great place to ride.

    Was around $1100 each for the boat in a 4 bed berth
    And twin share motel/holiday appartments in tassie.
    Averaged around $100 a day for fuel and food money.
    Can be done cheaper it just depends on what level of comfort you want
