From some of our happy customers:


 Thanks Ian for organizing a fantastic holiday for us. The 10 day self guided tour was the perfect road trip and the R1200GS BMW was the perfect bike for the trip, never missed a beat.  All our accommodation was Ist Class and the amount of planning you put into this trip is amazing. Would recommend this tour to anybody. Also thanks for the good weather that really made it enjoyable. Would love to do it again one day.  Rob and Karen.

Clifford J wrote: I had a great holiday, courtesy of the excellent services provided by Ian. I really cannot recommend Moto Adventure Tasmania highly enough. The bikes are always in excellent condition and as described in the brochure.  This is the 2nd time I’ve hired from Moto Adventure and for my next visit to Tasmania in 2015, they will be my first port of call for motorcycle hire.

Hi Ian,  What an awesome trip, we squeezed in as much as we could but really needed another week or so. Both bikes were immaculate, and performed so well they never missed a beat.

The Tiger was a great all rounder with plenty of grunt to negotiate the windy roads and still gave relaxed top end cruising to eat up the kilometres when needed, the CB400 was just zippy and fun all the way and easy to ride even for a less experienced rider.

The riding jackets were essential and kept us really warm, the heated handgrips were also a great luxury.  The weather was beautiful, we could not have asked for more.  Time and $$$ allowing we definitely want to return.

Thank you again for your help, advice & patience.

Hello Ian  Just to say a big thanks for sorting me out with a bike (GS Single) and riding gear for a few days between Christmas and New Year whilst visiting my daughters in Tassie.

I’ve just got round to looking at the photos of Lake Pedder and the road to the Gordon dam now I’m back in the UK, and it reminded me of what a brilliant service you provided. I’ve already recommended you to a few mates who reckon to be planning trips to Oz from the comfort of the pub! so you never know they might make it sometime.

Planning to come back with friends for a wedding next year, so we will book 3 bikes in good time, rather than just turning up!

Thanks again for your friendly help and advice, much appreciated. Good luck with your fantastic business!

Dear Ian, firstly thanks so much for making our bike hire experience first class.

My brother and I really felt that you cared a lot about making our Tasmanian holiday the best it could possibly be and your local knowledge proved to be a big factor in being able to get the most out of every day.

The Triumph Tiger was superb and having ridden many bikes over the last 39 years and having raced in the Australian Superbike Championships I literally can not think of a bike I would rather ride in Tasmania.

The Tiger was comfortable (a big one when you get to my age!), fast and handled like a dream. It never missed a beat. And the responsive engine was unbelievable even at low revs! What a joy to ride.

I couldn’t wait to “get my leg over” every morning and go in search of more twisties and sweepers. Thanks again.

Hi Ian, Just wanted to say a big thank you for the motorbike hire and planning of our holiday for us.  We had a fantastic time and were blessed with pretty good weather all round.

It’s definitely on the list to come back and do the west coast and see some more of Tassie! Have attached a few pics of our holiday 🙂 Thanks again,

Thanks again for the extraordinary efforts you made to get us the ride we wanted. The bike, accommodation, itinerary were totally perfect and Tasmania exceeded our expectations in every way.

You run a truly quality operation and we were only disappointed that we didn’t book 10 days.  For anyone tempted to glimpse motorbike heaven the Moto Adventure experience is really a no brainer.

Hi Ian

Just wanted to thank you for all your help in putting together a trip at the last minute.

You run a very professional and friendly business and went out of your way to assist me in my travel plans and it is greatly appreciated.

Hi Ian

Just wanted to say thank you and send you some photos of your happy customers.  We had a great time and John now looks longingly as we go past the bike shops!!!!
We have told everybody about your business and your exceptional attention to detail to ensure a stress free holiday.
Kind regards

Hallo Ian,

Kurz vor Weihnachten 2009 starteten wir mit drei Bikes von Motoadventure zu einer einwöchigen Rundreise um Tasmanien.

Ian wies uns ein, half beim Packen und gab wertvolle Tourentipps. Alle Bikes waren topfit und für den Trip vollständig ausgestattet mit Koffern, Topcase usw.

Sie waren uns während der Tour immer zuverlässige Begleiter.

Auch die Rückgabe der Bikes gestaltete sich problemlos und unkompliziert.

Und zum Abschluss fuhr uns Ian noch spontan und kostenlos zum Airport. Also eine rundum gelungene, unvergessliche Tour.” 

Heinz A from Germany 2010

Dear Ian

Back from Tasmania since 3 weeks and still some amazing image on brain, your island is really a top place for riding with lovely place to eat and stay on some of the world best landscape.

Thanks again for your help and the bike 

Bruno B from Tahiti (imagine someone from Tahiti thinks Tasmania is beautiful… Ian)

Hi Ian

Holy shit!

Tasmania is planet awesome sauce.It’s a custom made moto wonderland.Its gorgeousness and gorgeosity abounds.

Claire and I had the best time. Campervan for 5 days, Bikes for 2 days, so we did have to move like fugitives.

We rode from Hobart to Port Arthur and back then South of Hobart, all weekend and It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.

Aside from the bikes we ate exquisitely, saw cool stuff and went on death marches, including Corinna – eco resort converted mining village. Cradle Mountain was off he charts, unique wildernesseses.

Bay of Fires – nice orange lichen rocks. Port Arthur – brutal. Wineglass Bay, pretty much every wallaby and pademelon we saw had a joey (or was mangled).

We owe it to these people to tell others how Ah-MAZING they are, and were to us – Gateway to the ancient Tarkine wilderness. 

Tim C Sydney

I’m back at my office wishing I wasn’t here – wishing I was in Tasmania instead. Riding the bikes around was certainly the highlight of our month away.

The flora, the fauna, the landscape of Tasmania are interesting enough, but add in the world class motorbike roads and the friendliest people you’ll ever meet and then you have a truly fantastic trip.

Thanks for helping out so much!

Hi Ian

We all arrived home safely after a great adventure in Tasmania.

Judging from the emails floating around all of us would rather be heading back to Tassie on the next flight, to do it all again.

I wanted to drop you a short note to thank you and to compliment you on such a great setup.

The equipment you lent all of us was first class. The bikes were great and well maintained, you have managed to cover the spectrum of adventure biking in Tassie very well.

Thanks again

David S Brisbane

Hello Ian

Thanks again for a brilliant service from start to finish.

The bikes were absolutely top class, in perfect condition and we were very pleasantly surprised to find the panniers and extensive gear were provided at no extra cost.

We appreciated you taking the time to get us familiar with the bikes, provide some sightseeing ideas and get us on our way.

The riding throughout Tasmania itself was breathtaking and all 6 of us had an amazing time.

(The guys actually started planning the next trip on motorbikes just 1 day into the 10 day holiday!)

Your professionalism, personal service and organisation made the trip an absolute delight from start to finish.

Hello Ian

We did love it so much, and had such a good time, in both the wet and dry, it handled really well on both dirt and bitumen.

The comfiest ride as a passenger that ive had yet. infact – we bought our own 2006 BMW GS1200 and are picking it up today!

Hi Ian!

Now we are back (since 3 days) at the very cold Old Germany.  But in my memory I have the winding roads at Tasmania.

Very best regards

Jürgen, Bonsai and Heide from Germany

Awesome ride around around Tasmania.

Great bike, great accom and even great weather.

Ian at motoadventure is the man to see.

We would love to do another 10 days, no worries.



Ian and Helen

I still have cherished memories of my wonderful biking experience in Tasmania, and of your amazing hospitality.

Kindest regards

Hi Ian

Everyone was most impressed with the accommodation and food at Cradle Mountain and Strachan. Really a nice bonus at the end of a day on the road.

I know that everything was blown away by Cradle Mountain and Strahan.

I do appreciate all the work you did in organising the trip as it saved us (Steve and myself) heaps of time in doing it ourselves.

The group booking also resulted in us getting much better accommodation for the money spent.


Dawn G Victoria

My recent trip to Tasmania, December 2007, enters my fond memories catalogue.

Making the decision to conduct our holiday on motorbikes set the scene for an exciting time.  Service does matter, as does quality.

Moto Adventure are destined to prosper as they delivered appropriately on both.

I was already a Tassie fan, now having toured on a beautiful BMW motorbike I am an advocate.

Kind regards

Hi Ian

Here is a link to some of the photos I took whilst in Melbourne and Tassie


We had such an awesome time…..



Hi Ian

As we said at the time, a truly fantastic and memorable trip that we hope to be able to do again sometime, so let me know when you get those new bikes!

All the best and talk again soon.
