Some of these are great ideas! Thanks!


Anyone know the current covid status with continental riding?
About to do 3 weeks in Portugal. Going to ride Calais to Faro. The only thing i'm concerned with is self isolation and other stupidity.

It's my first road trip over here, and it's really just a run to get used to the bike. But also to gauge how long it takes at my normal pace which tends to go off in unplanned tangents.

TET, many have said don't do it alone, it would be great to hear from some who have done it alone. Particularly some sections that are indeed manageable solo. I got myself into some trouble before, it was a great experience, but on a bike this heavy i'd have to adjust my expectations.

I can only share some routes I've visited with my 4x4's so far since I haven't done much offroading with my bike. A region I love for its tracks is the french and italian alps. Especially the region around Sestriere. There are many kilometers of tracks you can go on legally and reach almost 3000m of altitude on the Colle Sommeiler.

Then there's Monte Jafferau with its famous fort on top and beautiful tracks. One of the highlights on this track is also the tunnel which reopened only last year after a section of the roof had collapsed.

Another great road is the Strada Assietta which is pretty easy terrain but beautiful landscape. Last year a section was closed due to a land slide but I think it has been cleared now.

The island of Corsica is also very nice. Both on and off road. Lots of tracks that lead to small secluded beaches and also many mountain tracks. Some of them are very tricky terrain though.

A road which is especially nice it the D84, also known as Scala Di Santa Regina.

Another great road is the D76 in France. Also known as the Col de la Machine. It is a spectecular shelf road and not recommended it you're afraid of heights. 😄

Last but not least, if you love tight hairpin turns you need to visit the D77B near Montvernier on the french-italian border. It's also known as the "Lacets de Montvernier".

I could go on and on ybout great places I've visited over the last few year but I guess that would be a bit too much. 😆

 

Thank you so much for sharing this with us.. These pictures and information are like Gold when you are planing a trip and want to have a look at some nice places... Please don't stop sharing valuable knowledge and pictures with us...

This is the whole point of this thread 🌎🥇🔥📸💯🤔😂

An ancestor of our beloved Tenere 700,...we met this one on colle del Finestre, Alps. I loved the looks of this bike 35 years ago.

There is so much to see and do around Europe! We are all spolied for choice.

I live in Scotland and the scenery is simply fantastic. However like most of these places the weather is not. One of the countries that is way under-rated (and i hope it stays like that) is Greece, especially for T7 owners. It is no coincidense that Teneres have been the Greek's favourite bikes for ever. Fantastic roads, open access everywhere with off-roading available, literaly, a turn away from anywhere, great food and soooooo cheap. No need to book accomodation as it's available everywhere and friendly people that speak english, so easy to get around. But most of all, the weather..... Fly to Athens, rent a bike, any bike, and have a great week on less than €1200 (all in, icluding flights, rental, food, on 3-4* accomodation). What's not to like? and no Covid issues worth writting about.

A round trip from Athens to Peloponesse includes Epidavrus, Mucenae, Olympia and then north to mainland, Dephi and Meteora. Check the places out on the net, simply stunning!

Here are a couple of pictures from our last tril in March this year.

Beautiful picture... I was toying with the idea of heading out on a weekend... As I am not going to a Europe this year.

If you were thinking of a trip to Ireland it would make sense to go up through Wales into the bottom of Scotland (can take the TET most of the way), get the ferry to Northen Ireland and drive over the North, down the west, back across to Dublin or Rosslare and get the ferry back to Wales. The ferries are only 90mins. It would be a great loop if the weather stays good.

I actually went through the Yorkshire Dales last December in lashing rain on my DRZ400. It was one of the best days riding I ever did. We were glad to get infront of the fire in the pub we were staying in that night...

There are so many nice places in the UK as well.. Just need to find the time to go and explore a bit.. This year has been a bit of a mess but we will have to make up for it. More riding in winter I guess 🤔🤣
