Trans-America Trail

Are there any sidecarists our there who would like to do part of the Trans America Trail this summer? I have a KLR650/Ural rig, and would sure like to go with a group of other sidecarists.

Question Tat

As of now, the idea is to head West. There's a fellow in Colorado who has the maps for Colorado, Nevada, and Utah.

Let me know what you think.

Eh? Tat

Maybe we should stick to the Eastern part of the trail?

Talking Eastern TAT

I have been on the entire Eastern TAT East of the Mississippi. My brother was with me and rode it on a street bike. No problem!!!

I have the Tenn/ Miss Section Maps

I woulde like to ride it again on my ural, but not during the heat of summer. I would rather wait until October some time. I rode this section a few years ago and had a ball. There are state parks to camp in each night. We went from Jellico Tn to Lula Ms in four days. I could skip the Ms section as those river rocks suck!!!! Let me know if anyone wants to set up another group to ride this fall? Possibly ride some of AK also?
