Trans American Trail?

After seeing this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AObw4sFMdQ on Jay Lenos youtube channel i did some research on the trail and found myself stuck to the computer for a couple hours. Anyone done it? or any sections of it? Thinking about planning a trip.

Sorry if this is a repost

They looked a little overpacked for the TAT, considering dudes conquer it with way less, but I guess it's better to be over packed then under.

You'd probably have more fun on the KTM or DRZ. I've been itching to hit it with my XR.
