Off to Tassie

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Bikes -

SOME of Aus­tralia’s most scenic roads are in Tas­ma­nia, and that’s where the 2010 BMW TourenS­port Sa­fari will be held from Fe­bru­ary 28-March 6.

Rid­ers will av­er­age 325km a day for six days, and cover sec­tions of the famed Targa Tas­ma­nia route.

Start­ing and end­ing in Devon­port, the route will take in some of the state’s nat­u­ral won­ders, such as Cra­dle Moun­tain, leg­endary Ele­phant Pass, the Tahune Air­walk and Port Arthur.

About 300 rid­ers are ex­pected on the sa­fari. Spots are fill­ing fast, so con­tact BMW sooner rather than later on www.bmwsa­ or ph: (02) 9552 3600.

BMW Sa­faris has been op­er­at­ing for 15 years in the ded­i­cated off-road GS and bi­tu­men-based TS modes.

And you won’t have to miss the World Su­per­bike Round at Phillip Is­land on Fe­bru­ary 27-28. Sa­fari mem­bers are booked on the ferry leav­ing Mel­bourne late on the Sun­day for Devon­port.
