    Salisbury

    Hi Pumbaa

    I would think the 990 would be fine.
    Only issue we had was when I buried my 530 in deep water and took 2 of us to drag it out.
    Not sure how much more the 990 weighs!
    I have tried to attach a couple of the routes we used.
    They are in Memory Map format.

    Best regards

    Dazlove

    Hi all. I'm currently in a van en route to Salisbury with the dirt bikes in the back. Very last minute. Anyone got a good starting point to leave the van? I need to purchase a map somewhere too? I can see the closed lanes on the Wiltshire council site but struggling with their map of the area.

    You can leave your van pretty much anywhere around Tidworth/Bulford

    There are dozens of Byways crossing the plain but issue is finding the legal ones when you get there. The military go wherever they fancy and this, of course, leaves a track that can easily be mistaken for a legitimate trail and you can end up off piste all too easily. It doesn't help that many of the official Byway signs have been flattened into the chalk by tanks and Landrovers

    Respect the plain and you will be fine

    Enjoy your day

    Get yourself to Brigmerston, there is a wide tank track (West to East) with a concrete apron on a uphill slope, go east (ish) along there for around 300yds and there is a parking area on the right.

    Any TRO's in force at the moment, were complete plain virgins
