Devil Trek Tours Clock Up 20,000 Trouble Free Kilometres With Honda

June 22, 2009 - The owners of Tasmania’s Devil Trek Tours trialled numerous motorcycle brands before deciding on Honda, and they haven’t looked back.

“We chose Honda bikes because they’re comfortable on the track, have great fuel economy and are friendlier to the environment,” said Matt Woodhouse, one of four owners of Devil Trek Tours.

“One of our CRF250X’s has clocked up over 5500 kilometres now, and is pretty much mechanically untouched.”

“We’ve totalled around 20,000 kilometres on our CRF450X and CRF250X’s and it’s been incident free. They’re exceptionally reliable and easy to ride and set up. They’re touring enduro weapons!” said Mr Woodhouse.

Devil Trek tours run for three to five days through the best motorbike riding trails in Northern Tasmania and cater for motorbike riders of all skill level.

“Our tours attract a wide variety of people; we have everyone from doctors to plumbers. We had a company send 16 staff for a corporate tour recently. It’s great because when you’re in the bush everyone is in it together, it’s a real leveller.”

“I love it when we have fathers and sons on a tour. It’s really nice seeing them out having a hoot together in the bush.”

Devil Trek Tours was founded in March 2002 and recently featured on the ‘Discover Tasmania’ TV series, which has already aired on Tasmania’s Southern Cross TV and is available online.

“We had Jack Campbell, one of the stars from “All Saints”, down here riding with us and we all hammed it up a bit for the camera. It was pretty fun.”

Devil Trek supply a 4x4 backup vehicle, accommodation, lead and sweep riders, fuel and meals during the ride.

“We’ll be opening up a new tour soon, in the spectacular Central Coast area of Tasmania.”

Devil Trek Tours will be featured on Australian capital and regional city television stations later in the year as part of the Discover Tasmania series.
