Choices

A good friend and business partner is going to join me on the TAT next year. Being the planner that I am, I've already started planning. In fact, one of the most important decisions / purchases for the TAT is of course, the motorcycle.

In order to share parts and be able to work on the bikes in the event of issue, we both decided that it would be a good idea to buy the same bike. With a little research and keeping my ear to the ground on new and exciting bikes being released, we both decided to move forward with the KTM 790 Adventure R. The caveat - it isn't quite available yet. We put down two deposits for two bikes today at the local 'power sports' dealer. They have four on the way and two of them have our names on them. We have been told that we should see them by the 1st of June, 2019.

If we do in fact get them by the first week of June, I'll publish the name of the dealer as they will have pulled off an amazing feat. Many others out there in the country are trying their level best to get their hands on these bikes with little to no luck.

I'm pretty excited about this choice, great power in a lighter, more agile bike.

Been a while...

Yeah, it has certainly been a while since I last visited my own little space on the "intraweb"...

A friend and business partner and I are in the early planning stages of a "small" adventure. We intend on riding across the United States on dual sport motorcycles, mostly offroad!

Not sure if you've heard of the Trans America Trail, I actually completed the first three states back in 2013. Now that I have more time on my hands, we will attempt the whole thing!

I purchased the GPS files today so we can officially begin planning. Our goal to start the TAT is likely July 11th, 2020.

Stay Tuned as we progress in our planning.
