Doug, when you told me that if going to Dead Horse, you'd take a Road King, I thought you were nuts. But now with the side car involved, I think you're only half nuts. Good luck with this fun adventure. Sounds like a blast.

Looks like you'll be past Oklahoma by the time I get on my flight from Dublin end of this month, on the 28th. If not swing by, or there is a free campground just north of Jet, by the Salt Plains Park. Happy Trails,

A few from Sunday...

Doug and Boojum in Tellico Plains:


Doug with the "DirtBag" in Tellico Plains:


Did somebody say Winch? This is just BadAss!


Beginning of the TAT (posed especially for ADVrider):


First water crossing:


Nice engraving:


Vanity Plate?


More water crossing:


This crossing was tricky if you got into the wrong groove. Boojum made it out just fine though:


When Doug's turn came, I think he had a hankerin' to try out that Big-ass Warn Winch. Actually, the bike slid off a rock into a deep hole and got stuck on the rocks. The winch had to be employed. Here Doug is connecting up the remote control cable:


The first tree we tied the winch cable to was about 4" in diameter and after the winch grunted a few seconds it was uprooted and being pulled back toward the DirtBag. Then Doug got out his extra 25' of cable which was just barely long enough to reach a substantial tree. Here the cable end had pulled loose and there was just enough for about two wraps after hooking to the tree:


The winch worked like a champ once it had a real tree to tug against and yanked the hack right back to dry land:


But after noticing an oil slick on the water, Doug found a slight issue behind the primary cover:


Water had apparently gotten sucked in through a ventilation hole and this Elmer's Glue-looking soup was the result. Took over an hour to drain, but once Doug flushed it with gas and refilled with fluid all was good for the rest of the day:


I'd been wondering why Doug had a shovel mounted on the side of the hack. It's a Harley thing I guess:


Once under way again we had miles and miles of great gravel roads with no dust thanks to recent rains:


At Webb's Service Station in Reliance, TN:


Doug and I ended up at Philip38's house Sunday night. Thanks for the hospitality Philip!!! Monday morning Doug was repositioning the load in the sidecar box to try to eliminate some of the leaf spring bounce:


Doug and Philip38 Monday morning:
