Re: CRF250L .... Opinions?????

The bike was already modified with the FMF exhaust and Bomb, with the EJC kit. This really seems to change the...

Re: GPX editing

For all mapping, creating and editing routes (gpx) I use BaseCamp.
Some don't like it, but once you are used to it it works well, and it's free.
I am sure many will give alternative options, and plenty of negative views on BaseCamp.
You just need to work with it. It gets better / easier over time.

Re: TET N to S and E to W

Great report and photos Phil, it's a great route the TET. Thanks for posting.
We did Carcassonne south and across into Spain, then along skirting the Pyrénées, earlier this year.
Looks like you had great weather for it.
Some great trails on the TET in France & Spain..

Re: Bardenas Realas -Advice

No problem, a well graded road.
Just follow the signs and stick to the main route around, it gets more rough if you go on the trails off the main one.
Sports bikes, cars, camper vans, they are all on there.
But a great little trip, a nice visitor centre with cold drinks and a clean WC :D
