For the benefit of non members and those thinking of joining the TRF, Its not all about TTR250s and screaming KTM EXCs just as much fun can be at hand on your trusty ADV bike. all thats needed is a decent set of tires and a have a go/can do attitude. see for yourself theres endless adventures just a twist of the throttle away.

Another excellent ride out on the big busses this week, Thanks to Phil for leading the way and mike for attending on the only dirty GS we saw all day ;) 286miles door too door and too many lanes to count. some real tricky climbs but nothing the ADVENTURE bikes cant handle. 8-) a few piccies from the day.

What can i say excellent ride with great company on exquisite machines.
came home to a welcoming sight, fire bin going, tea in The oven, and a double whisky waiting, awsome!

A perfect way to round out the day :lol:

Thanks for looking.

Hi mate, was a great day out, and tyres on tenere are
Front: mitas xt644 Army special
Rear: mitas C02

Both can be bought from www.mitas.co.uk and are under the trail tyre section.
The handguards are barkbusters but they came on the bike so thats all i kniw about them.

Do you have a tenere??

Jon
