Very nice. Reminds me of Central Fl. It's amazing that the best sand is usually under water, I found that to be true with a 1971 Toyota Corolla with rear wheel drive in the swamps. Thanks for the TET-S link.

Holy moley-------H20.

My bike drowned out in my garage by me just looking at these pictures.

Great stuff----and thanks for taking the time----yes there's seems to be very little of the TET on the net.

I think my old KLR has been the best bike I ever owned for going in deep water-----it just won't drown out.

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Thanks Mark
I can't believe there's been no TET reports put up, 'cept for your ride on the VA to GA part of it.

and Yea I love my KLR, just wish I'd had something other than Heidenau K60's on it. They're not for sand or mud.

Good pics from the video. I enjoyed the report.
Now for the north section..........
Thanks, Mark, it was fun
If Larry and I can get up your way towards the end of this week, (Friday maybe), reckon you could take that Husky and lead us around a little?

great report...I ain't never seen nothin' like that up here in new england.
We're planning on a northern tet ride this spring, but won't make it down that far. I don't know how you can ride into that stuff. I 'd never trust that much water.

We didn't trust the water either, but there was no way around most of it. There was some holes, but they were small enough that the front wheel was coming out before the back wheel went in, so no problem with drowning the bikes.

I enjoy your reports!

Sorry I won't be able to make Treemans ride next weekend.
I'd sure like to talk to you about the TET and what your planning next.
