After a few beers in the pub one night some of my GS riding mates informed me that KTMs are no good for long distance touring... So decided to prove them wrong. Original plan was to ride down to the Gap area and spend a few days doing some local passes or Route Napoleon. Weather looked poor with thunderstorms and rain so as I only had a few days decided to head to the Pyrenees which looked more promising. Glad I had an airhawk for the long ride south mind. Camped at a little site near Ax-Les-Thermes near the foothills of the Pyrenees. I knew I had made the right choice when I woke up the next morning. Quick coffee before getting ready to explore. The Pyrenees is just as good as most of the Alps anyway. Looking good.
