    Did a quick web search and it looks as though rentals are not too hard to find.
    Could we see Sydney & Melbourne in a week after the salvo? (not on a bike)
    I might enlist the services of a travel agent to coordinate this.

    This will be a good ride from South Aust to Tassie -- I will just have to water proof the Rocket so it will make the water crossing okay, or do they have a ferry now ?????

    But seriously if its on count me in..
    Gav, we could ride across together and meet up with the easterners, I'm sure there will be some more from SA

    Well it might be clever to arrange the Salvo around events like the Phillip Island GP,either before or after so folk can kill two birds with one stone.

    I think the date of the GP is 25/02/2011 - 27/02/2011.Can anyone confirm that??

    If we timed the Salvo ferry arrival or departure to coincide with either end of the GP date, you would be sharing the ferry with a good hundred or so bikes ,which is quite a sight, i might add!

    Input fellas??
    I am wondering whether the weekend between March and February which is a long weekend would be a good time to run the Salvo.
    Upside it could help some folk with leave issues(is it a national holiday or a Tassie one?), downside there might be more cars on Tassie roads ,cos of the long week end.??
    Booking accommodation on a long weekend can be problematic ,though if ya get ahead long enough,it shouldnt be too much a problem.
    Bookings at Strahan on the West Coast are definitely a 'must do early ' job,.

    A few days would be just enough to see Sydney, a few minutes far too much for Melbourne......
