Re: Picking your bike. a question with many answers

Not long back from a 5,100km trip from Malaga to Cherbourg, via Ronda, Sagres, Serra De Estrela, Picos, Pyrenees, and western France. Vast majority road, but attempted some sections of Portugal TET and the Sotres trail in the Picos. I was on my 1150GS and mate was on his Super Tenere. Both bikes fan...

Re: Given The Huge Interest In TET From Owners Of All Types Of Bikes - Grading Of TET?

Good post Lenzwerf, though if I understand correctly, you seem to think I'm asking in this thread about what I can do? My OP was putting out there the notion of a grading system that might aid anyone interested in riding the TET - that's all. I'm a research fiend - I ask questions, I watch videos (y...

Re: Given The Huge Interest In TET From Owners Of All Types Of Bikes - Grading Of TET?

I've been on bits in Spain which were at the time pretty heavily rutted. There was also a layer of very sticky mud on top of it. This stretch was maybe 300 meters long. But is was on the south-west side of a hill so it'll dry up in a few hours. So how do we grade that and who will edit the maps ? T...

Re: Be able to post pictures on the thread

Till we can upload directly to the forum, we can still embed pics from external third-party hosting sites. I've done this a couple of times already using imgur.

Re: Given The Huge Interest In TET From Owners Of All Types Of Bikes - Grading Of TET?

Yep - bit of an a-holey response, but we can all be guilty of that now & then... :handgestures-thumbup: "... people that ask about how hard/long a trail will be instead of just going for it tend to be more whiny than the go getters who don't ask but try ..." To me, that comment suggests that the re...

Re: TET .gpx Routes Editable?

Thanks Simon. :bow-blue: The more-or-less final route is now looking quite different - we're not riding from/to Santander, but rather we're back to our earlier plan of riding from Malaga across to Portugal, up to Picos, across to Pyrenees, and up through France. So that route I have from Malaga to T...

Given The Huge Interest In TET From Owners Of All Types Of Bikes - Grading Of TET?

TET was envisaged and created with small- to mid-sized bikes in mind - we all know and accept this. But there clearly is huge interest in travelling these routes from owners of all sizes and shapes of bikes ("can I do TET on my GS?"), and from people in different life-situations ("I have a week off...

Re: Best way to navigate, track or route?

I'm not sure I'm understanding the timings indicated on BaseCamp vs actual time. For example, after converting the TET track into a route , BaseCamp lists the section of Portugal shown in the image below as being 507km distance and 28.5 hours duration - does this mean it'll take 28.5 hours to trave...

Not TET, But Someone Might Know About These Trails?

Anyone know if the trails in the region I've circled in red (between town A, Punta Carnero and town B, Pelayo) are accessible a) to the public (or is it a military area), and b) vehicles (motorbikes in particular, obviously)? https://i.imgur.com/hoyn2lu.jpg https://i.imgur.com/4NO3ulH.jpg TIA. :hand...
