Re: Any tips, mates??

Most of the TET through DK is tarmac - anyone can ride it. Scroll down on this page ( https://naturstyrelsen.dk/naturoplevelser/overnatning#{%22x%22:671157,%22y%22:6240022,%22zoom%22:2} ), and you'll find a map showing free camp- and shelter sites in the country. Wild camping not allowed, but if you...

Re: The full Monte

As you plan on riding the entire TET, you might as well just start wherever it's easiest/cheapest to fly your bike.
May is a good time to ride most of the track, except high mountains and the northern most part.

Re: Where to start

First off - welcome to the forum Del. A trip to Nordkapp is best done between mid June and mid August - even within that window you can encounter all kind of weather up north (even snow), so proper all weather riding gear is a good thing. You plan to ride a heavy pig and have no off-road experience,...

Re: TET with 4x4?

The TET is created solely with motorcycles in mind. The result is that many of the off road/trail sections is impassable with a 4X4 - hell even bigger bikes will have difficulties navigating several sections. I would not recommend that you use the TET for your trip to Albania. You will be better off...

Re: Which laptop/tablet to bring on a journey..?

Ended up ordering an Acer Swift 1 which should arrive in a few days.
Seems like a very good combination of price, size and performance for a travel laptop.

Re: Which laptop/tablet to bring on a journey..?

My riding season is (hopefully) about to take off soon and it's about time I pick up a new travel laptop. After some digging around I've more or less decided on what I'm going to buy - Acer Switch 3. It's probably not powerful enough to edit videos, but besides that it seems tick all the right boxes...

Re: Hello TET guys

There is really nothing to worry about regarding wild animals when camping in the Balkan area.
Yes they have bears (just like in Sweden and Norway), but just take the ordinary precautions (no food in the tent ect.) and you will be fine.

Re: Did anybody ever ride the entire TET?

To the best of my knowledge no one has yet completed the entire TET - not even close.

BUT it is only a matter of time before someone will give it a go. Completing it in one go from early spring to late fall is absolutely doable.
