Re: Northern Spain Sept 20109

Nice report and pics Dave . I followed a similar route in places and have hundreds of photos to sift through and try to get a few up on here at some point.

Agreed, some of the trails are reasonably technical and very entertaining :D

Also great to see that the bikes performed well.

Mike.

Re: TET on a yamaha super tenere 1200, anyone?

Don't do it !
I travelled on a KTM690 Enduro and carried all my camping kit, if I didn't have to travel 1800km home by road I would have preferred something much lighter for the 850km covered offload !!

Re: Can I use my Samsung s6 for tet

OsmAnd works for me, nice and simple and will cost just a few Euro for the upgrade. Always worthwhile having a backup device with the tracks added if you are planning a longer trip.

Re: How to load a TET GPX onto a Garmin Montana

That's the nice and simple way to do things, some explanations are just overcomplicated !

You can also add the .gpx files to your Android ( and probably also the other brand ) using OsmAnd using a similar drag / drop or cut / paste method...good to have a back up available in another type of device .

Re: Newbie incompetence - sympathy and help requested

I'm in the market for a travel insurance for a motorcycle trip through Spain as well! I'll be starting from Perpignan, France, all the way south to go and visit these houses in Alicante for the company I work for; it's a business trip, but I found a way to make it fun! I know it's not a cross-count...
