just back from riding the French TET from Rodez to carcassone , then across to Foix , then back to Cahor on as many GR routes as we could find , the two ttrs on the trip performed brilliantly and didn't miss a beat , just under 2k kilometres in 6 days of everything the French countryside could throw at us from fast flowing gravel trails to very steep wooded rock climbs , great little bike , image.jpeg

Excellent!

Did you wild camp or B&B?

Also, what GPS system(s) did you use and did they work OK for you?

The reason I ask is that I have a couple of mates leaving to do the same on Wednesday and am looking for any last minute hints or tips wink

Glad you spared us the uncut photos. How tough was it as I intend the Honda 500 build for this very stuff ?

Hi Allen , most of the trails were easy enough , some very fast , we did have some fairly tough ones as well big rocks steep downhill over loose boulders , some steep climbs over rocks , one of these was shown in video clip on TET Facebook page , it shows me struggling to get the ttr over some rocks , what it didn't show was Phil had stalled his KTM getting over them which cause Steve to lay down with his ttr leaving me nowhere to go , I then had to start on a rocky bank to climb over the rocks !!!! A few keyboard warriors thought they could do better but have probably still got stabilisers on their bikes !!!! Knobs !!! Young man like yourself should be no problem 👍
