    Great photos and ride !! Do you have the gpx file of your ride? It would help to find the off road sections.

    Your RR is great!

    I'm from Austria and always searching for new possibilities to drive my bike offroad. Would it be possible to get your GPS data by mail? Please.
    Some of the places look beautiful. I would really like to go there by my self.

    How did you plan the trip. Just a few points before you started and then followed the GPS or you planed all the "streets" before?

    Thanks everybody!

    Soory, we dont have GPS data any more. :dunno
    No, we didnt planed all the roads before. My friend print me some maps from the google maps to find some off roads. That is what we used. We are not so good with GPS so we didnt know how to use that trip logs. Now I try to learn how to use that things. Next time we will have GPS data. :wink:
