The Adventures of Juan Maltalvo - Life at 6500rpm on the UPAT

Meet Juan........................



This is story of his adventure and 4 other turds on a 5 day adventure across the UPAT (Upper Peninsula Adventure Trail)........this is the route....or at least what we planned. 1250 Miles of Pure Michigan.



Big thanks to Cannonshot for offering this up for others to enjoy......here is the thread where this started......http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=627424

Never been to MI's UP you say.....this pic pretty much sums it all up.....



And a quick preview of things to come................






















OK, so where do we begin??? Lets start by saying, I suck at ride reports. Lets add to that, that we are not "adventure riders". In fact, this is our first ADV type ride. We had no plan and poor equipment. We suck at taking photos when we should. This report will not document the true epicness of this adventure for all 5 of us. What an experience.....

But we'll get to that.........Lets see how Juan is doing............








We'll it appears that Juan is happy so lets meet the all the riders........



In order....Pauly, Misko, Gino, Juan and Wade......




So the first three load up



So did the other two



And head across the mighty Mac


These are the chariots…..3 DR650’s, 1 KTM 690 and Juans DR3fiddy……..



5hrs in, ……welcome to one of the most unique places to stay in the UP…..words, pictures and stories do it no justice. We are friends with the owner, who allowed us the grand tour…..








Yes, that’s a car through the wall…how would you heat the barn???


Juan Likey


UP Tanning Booth



A zip line??? What would you do…..






Alright, enough of the drunken shenanigans. Most of what occurred that night cant be posted because it took place underground (seriously), or is not for public consumption…….
