Yep, worth a visit ... head from Hawes over the Buttertubs then at the 'T'-junction turn left, then go through Thwaite in direction of Angram up towards Keld ..... but stay on the 'main road' (Small twisty lane in reality) rather than go to Keld.

Just after the hamlet of Keld there is a road junction on the right hand side - take it & it climbs up over the moors & takes you to the 'T'-junction at Tan Hill.

The first section of that road is a steep climb with one sharp hairpin - be careful .... worth observing the hill first to make sure there is nothing coming down to the hairpin as you approach it. It is not a heavily trafficked road - so pick your moment for the hairpin. This is a real 'backroad', and not for the feint hearted ... but I've done it on the F6C with a pillion on board.

There are several good 'backroads' in the North Yorks Moors .... another good one being from Kettlwell over to Leyburn.

Nice looking example of a GT Kwack by the way .... long time since I rode one of them !

The GT is the other halfs,she loves it to bits. We did the tracks out of Hawes to Crackpot,a few interesting bends there.Didn't have time to go to tan hill as we were off to Edinburgh. Came back via Hawes and the North York moors.

We love the area & taking the fully loaded cruiser over some of the moorland roads is a brilliant thing to do even if mine has the VS1400 diff swap as it doesn't phase the bike whatsoever!

Thankfully it was a lot dryer for us on Friday.  Looks pretty bloody miserable and hairy in the wet!

On the way back from the Tan Hill to the digs, we came across a little puddle.

My wee beastie at the buttertubs Puddle10

Gary, who had was in his car (he does not ride, but his wife Kate was on a VFR800) came out with us on most trips, now his car is a Tesla, so its electric, he's sat on about 470v of batteries, he went through first and another car followed, we then followed on the bikes :)

That's what the road to Hawes looked like when we went up there last month.

Oh -  I am so glad we had decent weather - that 'puddle' would have finished the journey for me - no way would I ride through that - far to soft.
