Which meals are included?
Breakfast and dinner daily, except when disembarking the ferry. You need to buy your own lunch and all snacks and beverages along the way.
Can I rent a motorcycle?
Yes, you can rent a motorcycle. Just choose this option and a quality motorcycle from EagleRider will be prepared for you.
Is this ride suitable for Learner and Provisional riders?
No. Due to the distances travelled, and the technical nature of the roads, we recommend that you be fully licensed and are comfortable on your bike and in your gear. Though previous experience with trips such as this one is not necessary, we do suggest that you attend one of our trip preparation workshops if this is your first big trip.
What other costs am I likely to incur along the way?
Plan to pay for fuel, any other consumables for you bike, some national park entry fees, and a few sights along the way. There is so much to see and do!
What happens if my bike breaks down?
If your bike breaks down, it is your responsibility to get it repaired. Any costs incurred will be yours. We will of course assist as much as we reasonably can, which may include road-side repairs, getting your bike to the nearest workshop, and arranging a rental motorcycle. Unfortunately, if you find yourself without a motorcycle, you may need to rejoin the tour later, time permitting.
Do I need insurance?
We recommend that you have, at a minimum road side assist with coverage in Tasmania, and basic private health care, which included ambulance cover. You may want to look into travel insurance – please verify that any such insurance covers you for motorcycle riding!
What can I expect weather-wise?
Everything! Though we will be riding in summer, the weather this far south can be variable. You need to be prepared and able to ride in a variety of conditions including hot and cold weather, rain, and darkness.
