Ian and Moto Adventure TAS are top notch. I contacted Ian about 10 months out. He always responded to questions/ inquiry's ASAP.

We booked a 5 day ride and Ian did a wonderful job putting together a trip that exceeded our expectations. It was hassle free - the accommodation was fabulous and every day we experienced great views, wonderful experiences and beautiful days of riding. We rode past spectacular coastline & beautiful bays, mountains and stunning forests. Well done Ian- it was... More

I found the rental agency on a whim after seeing a video about the great motorcycle roads in Tasmania. After several emails with Ian customizing a trip for a whirlwind 1 week of motorcycling, I had a motorcycle and lodging for 5 days. Ian was super nice and relaxed about me picking up the motorcycle in the morning instead of... More

Decided to do an impromptu 4 day ride around tassie, booked with late notice but Ian was very accommodating and organised a bike for me. Special thanks for providing a narrower seat for my partner's 1200GS (not rented through the company) which helped her get her feet down on the ground. Bike was in great condition (albeit with slight flat... More

Pleasure to meet you all. I was very impressed by your partner taking on a 1200GS, I think the low seat made all the difference. Sorry about the flat spot, we try to keep quality tyres on the bikes, but sometimes even a new tyre can be flat spotted by some riding techniques. Pleased you worked around it, and had... More

Thanks for your very positive review. We only have a few accommodation partners, but that is because we know they take your enjoyment seriously. 10 days was a pretty good time to look around the island, but as there are so many hidden places to discover you could probably spend 35 years here like me, and still not have found...

Tasmania has some of the best motorcycling roads in Australia and Ian's the guy to hire you a bike and help you find them! He just can't do enough for you. It's my 2nd time hiring from MotoAdventure and I can't wait until my next trip!!

The most incredible way to experience Tasmania! Some of the absolute best motorcycling you will ever encounter. Thrilling roads combined with spectacular views around each and every corner. Take Ian's advice, go SOUTH! or if you've got the time, DO IT ALL!! - Was a struggle to give the bike back! :( Already planning our next visit. Thanks Ian!!

There's not an inch of Tasmania that's not interesting, fascinating, beautiful or surprising. The roads are great and the people, even the cops, are laid back and so proud of their homeland. Great fresh food, fish & chips & pies (of course), international top quality restaurants plus splendid distilleries, wineries and breweries. What's not to like? Moto Adventure provided us... More
