 How did you find all these places? Do you have GPS co-ords?


Hi Kev
Some of them I still know from when growing up over there-skiing the Alps extensively. Most came together by scouring the net for the last 2 years, asking around in newsgroups, googling till blind etc.
Great info through many pushbike-related sites/bushwalkers and mountain-climbing sites/ hang-gliding forums and newsgroups etc., one has to look a little "sideways" from the beaten motorcycle path. MX-forums are another source of info...
Then it's a matter of stringing it all together. And nothing, but nothing beats a good, detailed set of departmental Michelin maps.(or Kummerley and Frey for some areas)

Sorry, no GPS for this old goose....still navigating and planning by maps/ compass/sun and dead-reckoning, never afraid of spending the time to exploring some backtracks and asking the locals.  :)

Still, takes a hell of a lot of time, stringing 6 weeks and 10.000km together, though...but it's a shitload of fun and one tends to have loads more ancilliary- info "at hand" once hitting the roads...

This report and the cheap arse one, excellent! You guys sure have cajones doing trips like that on those little scoots. Just goes to show, you don't have to spend lots of money to do some serious adventure riding.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!
