Default A Trip to Tasmania - most southern Victory?

Not many get down to this part of the world.

In fact I might claim a record, as I did a 4,000 km ride from Sydney to Hobart and once we were on the ferry across Bass Straight and arrived in Tasmania, did not see another Victory for the whole trip! (Tasmania has a population of 500,000 and no Victory dealers). Only Victory in Tasmania and perhaps the most southern ever?

Fitted a RPW Thor 2 into 1 exhaust (good but LOUD), Lloyds timing wheel, new air box, Lloyds ECU, and Avon Cobras for the trip. Loads of grunt and grip.

Attached are some pictures of this part of the world. Me on a Victory Judge and my mate on a HD Road King:

There's something special about riding onto a ferry, because when you ride off, you are in a very different place. We experience that sensation quite a lot in the NW corner of Washington state. Thanks for the pics and the post--looks like a neat place to ride.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

Ive never been down there yet myself.
Actually when I was Victory hunting last year there was a Judge for sale there. Had I had the funds at the time I wouldve flown down and rode home.
As luck would have it though a great deal on my Vegas came up in Melbourne so it was Plan V instead
Really like to do a run to Tassie as some time.
Lots of windy roads perfect biking state.
In summer of course
