Just been on a swift trip to explore the eastern end of the Pyrenees. Based ourselves in Le Boulou and had done some research on tracks to use (Mapsource and Google Earth) and rode generally southwest from there.
The XC did very well all round and the Heidenau K60 scouts were superb. In amateur hands (like mine and my mates) this bike is the equal of the KTM990ADV.
Came across some of this....

Good job it was September.
And this....

Defeated by this....

The photo doesn't do it justice.
