This is my 3rd attempt at doing a bloody TET run :o the 1st two ended with a broken frame and then a blown clutch !!!

So booking this run i crossed my fingers for a 3rd time lucky event !!!

Bob AKA Diggermanbob and Steve AKA Chunky butt arrived here on Friday night with 2 TTR 250s a EXC 400 and a GasGas trials bike in a trany van ....................the exc was brought down here for me from Boboneleg ......many thanks and DMB brought his gas gas down for a play

Anyway Saturday arrived and it FECKIN RAINED !!!!!! typical its not rained here for over 10 weeks :cry: its wasn't to bad so we saddled up and set of towards Decazeville to pick up the TET

Took it easy on the black stuff with being a tad damp :? stopped at Rocamadour for a piccy

We did the rest of the road with no problems just boring road stuff :cry: grabbed a coffee at Mc Meard

Arrived at start point and filled up again and happy to say i was getting 20 + km/l so looking at a good 250km range

Yeeee Harrrr the trail was great from the start , forest lane to start with then lovely rocky climb to the top of a plateau

Image20180825_122241 by Philip Parkinson, on Flickr

Here we rolled on big open trails ......away from the rain 8-)

Have to admit there was quite a lot of road work after this , nice winding back lanes , probably needs a tad more routing as theres NOTHING and NOBODY out there !!!

It was interspurced with shot sections of good stuff .........

Image20180825_135258 by Philip Parkinson, on Flickr

about 200m long and cut us to ribbons :lol: and barbed wired off at the end !!! you guessed it ...............we had to back track :lol:

We eventually saw what i call the Toulouse plains ...............real flat area up to the Pyrennes

Image20180825_155042 by Philip Parkinson, on Flickr

But still had the odd suprise waiting for us...................just not enough gas in the TTR Bob :D

Image20180825_161046 by Philip Parkinson, on Flickr

The boys wanted a bed bar and shower so i found them this place €30 each with grub and live music

Day 2 and the trail started right opposite the Auberge behind the cross

Image20180825_190333 by Philip Parkinson, on Flickr

And what a suprise , a crazy set of rock steps !!! a proper wake up call , didn't get a piccy as you couldn't stop !!

Again there was a fair bit of road work , not bad and plenty to see but would rather been on trails

But eventually the trails started again , i do think there would be trails in the road sections they just need finding

Image20180826_104655 by Philip Parkinson, on Flickr

Hard to see here but nice steep up and down forest trails
