Hi Jacko  :401:  :031:

A lot of the Peak District trails have been downgraded over the past 20 years, thanks to the ramblers who haven't got enough footpaths. There was plenty back in the 80's, could go out for 150 mile day. Mostly riding between trails, mind.

Dunno if I'd ride them on a 220kg T800 though. You could try some easy ones & see how it goes. eg Houndkirk moor, back of the Barrel Inn at Bretton, then onto Sir William Hill road. There are a few short nadgery trails around Eyam/Stoney Middleton.

Take a look at this link, like it says, "solid blue line: = byway open to all traffic". BOAT's. It's legal to use them as long as your bike is fully road legal.

I don't disagree that ithe T800 is not the ideal tool for the hardcore trail, but on the easier stuff then it should be ok.  I'll look into the trails you have suggest - thanks for the info.

Test yersen on the easy ones I suggested before any proper BOAT's eg Hollins Clough. The T800 is not a KTM.



Or even an old school traillie

I've done some of that on a proper enduro, not suggesting for a moment that i'd take the T800 rock crawling (or whatever the biker term is)

No worries Jacko, if you've done it, you'll know all the trails.

That's a wild assumption to make.

 :028:  Might be worth getting something arranged for when the weather gets a little better.
