My Dad & I hired the BMW R80 and R100S for two weeks, last November and rode right around Tassie. The bikes didn't skip a beat.

The R80 is a great machine, easy to ride, sweet engine and good handling.
The R100S, being that bit older, is a more physical bike to ride. You really have to work it, which in itself is a great experience, but you can still throw it around the corners. You really get to know the bike and it's little quirks.

Bear in mind the bikes are classics and don't have all the electronic wizardry. No ABS, EFI, engine/suspension mapping etc. They weren't really early morning bikes, but we aren't early morning people either so we warmed up together. It's great to get back to basics and work with the bike.

Mike provided luggage for us, basic maintenance kit, full run through of the bikes and things to be mindful of.
Mike even took us on a day ride out of Devonport to Sheffield and circuit around Mt Roland. He's also got great suggestions for all parts of Tassie.

Dad & I had the best time and would recommend taking a ride on the older side, for a change.

Date of experience: November 2016
