TRF ADV Ride on the TET – Whiteways to Loomies | Aprilia Tuareg 660

The TRF (Trail Riders Fellowship) is a great way to meet new friends & explore green lanes in the UK legally. Our local group organises rides for new & old members of all abilities & bike types be it full on enduro bikes, dual sports or like in this ride, adventure motorcycles. Each ride is tailored to suit the bikes & riders taking part.
For this ride, which I lead, we ventured along the TET (Trans Euro Trail) through Sussex into Hampshire, meeting up at Whiteways Cafe on Bury Hill & finishing over at Loomies Moto Cafe in West Meon. There was a fair amount of tarmac covered, but also & most importantly, a lot of green lanes along the way. Due to us being on adventure motorbikes, we avoided the harder tails (see my last video as to why – boy was that a tough ride) & mostly stuck to easier lanes that allowed us to enjoy the views & scenery. There were still a couple which were challenging, I chose to find a bush on an easy one though, while the others waited until things got a little more technical to give their bikes a nap! Thankfully no damage other than a broken clutch lever on the Yamaha T7.
The bikes that were out on this ride were quite a variety. I was on my lovely @ApriliaOfficial Tuareg 660, Sidni was on his super capable @yamahamotoreu Tenere 700 or T7, Jan was riding the incredible @bmwmotorrad 1250 GS & @Phil480 was on his @HondaMotorcyclesEU CRF250L (check out his channel for his version of events).
If you are sitting on the fence as to joining the @trailridersfellowship8717 (TRF) or not, get in touch with your local group & ask if you can join one of their led rides. The London & Surrey group put on rides on the first Saturday of each month, so there should be a group in that to suit your bike & ability. Go on, give it a whirl… You’ll love it!

  1. Nice of you to help the lad out with his car, don't think he would have made it through that wet area. Oops on the excursion into the ivy bush! Glad no one was hurt or bikes too badly damaged

  2. Sucks that you landed in that bush mate. At least it wasn’t a hard object. That was a fantastic road to navigate 👍👍👍

  3. It's not just me then with OS Maps. Fucking annoying if you don't know the routes to have to keep stopping and re-centreing it. I have complained to them. Wonder if Viewranger is any better.
    Kerp rolling buddy.

  4. Trundle from old English also means a person moving slowly and heavily (as in uphill) I always seemed to get attacked by bushes, they are full of evil intent🤣

  5. “It’s fine”. WHOOPS! That’s what we call a “Hold my beer” moment😆. Glad you weren’t hurt though.

    Man I have 4 different apps for navigation but one of them is the Garmin Explore app which works hand in hand with my Zumo XT. Otherwise I use SCENIC and REVER. I REALLY like the SCENIC app as it is really easy to plot a course and import that same course to my Garmin. It took a little bit to learn but that goes with any nav device or app.

    Oh, Yes they do offer offline maps

  6. I binned the OS maps app for the same reason. I run Outdoor Active now on my ride outs. Having nav mode as well as North up mode makes it a lot better when leading. It does take some getting use to but it's easy to share routes and also let's you attach photographs to the route for those tricky lane entrances etc.

  7. Famous last words!
    I think most map apps have become paid for. Memory Map used to be the recommended one many years ago, dunno what else there is that people use.

  8. We use outdoor active, works well on both my Android and iphones, website is good for planning too. I've just used it to plot a route in France using the TET sections 1 and 5,

  9. A proper mud-fest!
    Whoops! Is that the firs time the toe-rag's had a wee nap? That was very sudden, hard to tell from the video but looked like lost rear altogether and got thrown left.
    Well done Pete, lead a good route. I don't use apps really… maps to study and try to memorise routes, then google maps to confirm if need be.

  10. Great ride. Watching these really makes me consider an adventure bike at times. That ride had it all, views, stuck cars and an off, pleased you are ok mate and the bike 😎

  11. Just riding around looking to help dudes in distress 😂 Looked like a good day out. You suffered the classic commentators curse saying it was easy then splat. Murry Walker would be proud. I’m going up use the “I’m going to slow to clear the mud off my tyres excuse” one day 😁

  12. That was a crunchy little crash mate. Was it just me or did it look like someone else had done exactly the same thing in exactly the same spot? Nice ride Pete 🍻

  13. I use Google maps and never really had a big problem yet….but then again, I haven't tried green laning either.
    Very nice of you guys to help the stuck lad!
    I wouldn't really like leading on a group ride either. I wouldn't hate it. But I'd prefer to just catch the scenery.
    A couple spills that day, but at least nothing serious.
    Good video Hippo!!
