Taken at a lookout in the middle of the island. I was out riding around for over an hour and only passed one car. Very quiet here.

Cold yes, but no where near as cold as some places in the world. I've got a lovely fireplace. I lived in Queensland for a while and found it too hot! I worked on a prawn farm in Cardwell, Far North Queensland. I used to dream of nice cool Tassie.

Move over, I'll be your welcome mat!
Funny you should ask about off road bikes. I recently sold my honda quad bike and have just brought a brand new Suzuki DRZ400E. Comes on the boat this week or next? The DRZ400E is road legal the quad bike wasn't. There are literally thousands of bush tracks here and no one minds if you ride on the beach. When the bike turns up I'll start a thread and post some pics. I'll put a call out to any other DRZ400 owners out there.

I did check out the honda CRF450L, got very excited when I heard honda was again putting out a road legal dirt bike in Australia.
BUT....The honda costs almost twice as much and only puts out 25hp? WTF!!???!? heavily restricted?
Here in Australia we get the dirt bike version of the DRZ400. It's got an E on the end. Puts out about 35 to 40hp. The restrictions have been removed by the dealer. It has a steel frame, doesn't bother me and also a carburetor, also doesn't bother me since it's a single. Something else I like is that the Suzuki is simple, no complicated electronics. Shit tons of aftermarket stuff and heaps of advice on forums. The DRZ400 has been around for a while and is bullet proof, except for the engine side cases. I've spent months thinking it over. I'm not racing just flogging around the bush and beach. This bike is not my pride and joy, my 919 is. It's just a fun toy. Also at nearly half the price of the CRF450L money talks. At lot of my mates ride quad bikes, I had one as well. They are fun but I prefer two wheels. Faster, lighter and I can ride on the road. No more trailer.

Love the DRZ. If I can ever justify it, I'll get one to replace my DR650. The 650 is fun, but it's a pig.

Yeah I hear ya. I looked at the DR650. Only makes a wee bit more power than the DRZ400 but weighs more. The DR650 has more torque though? I had heard it was a bit of a pig in the bush. Since most of my riding will be in the bush I figured the DRZ400E would be the one for me.
