I have a KTM 530 EXC-R currently and was thinking whether the new 450L would be a better bet to mod for the TET?

Both bikes will need bigger tanks and some accessorizing - so KTM or Honda??

Re: 3 Generations Ride

There are mild sections but there are also very difficult ones.
So either don't do it, or plan to ride your dad's bike in difficult sections while he walks along.
But to be honest, I think there are other countries which are better suited to your group.

Re: Difficulty rating of the trail

To ride a '5' Tet trail on a lightweight enduro bike would be peanuts but on a 1200 a '5' might mean impossible Yes, that's what I was saying as well. so in other words because of the equipment a rating will be meaningless. This makes no sense. A rating will be very useful exactly in helping you ch...

I think it's really difficult to grade / rate a trail. You can have 25km of easy trail and a 50m steep and knarley incline, So the whole trail is rated difficult.
Indeed.
For something like the TET, rating would be done on sections of the trail, with colour coding or something similar.

Re: Difficulty rating of the trail

A human with the same ability will have a much easier time with a lighter bike then a heavier bike on the same trail. Yes, but these are two different things. The difficulty of the trail is one thing. How riders of different abilities, on different bikes, are able to handle said trail, is a complet...

Re: Difficulty rating of the trail

This has been extensively discussed on the forum. Conclusion, next to impossible to do. On a trials bike the TET would be 1 and on a GS 1200 a 10 but then you put Chris Birch on the GS 1200 and it is probably a 3 and have me ride it on the 64 kg trials bike and it is probably an 8... :-) Technicall...
