    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.

    yes xr650.. they made it a long way... got into that big rain storm in colorado that flooded everything.. he said it was miserable..

    he sent me pixs where he buried the entire back wheel on the xr a couple of times.. just too heavy .. but no mechanical issues at all...


    someday...
