HI, I have allways be a sport bike rider here in the blueridge mnts. I thought the curvey roads and occasional track days would never get old but now at the age of 32 i feel 62 after leaning over on a 100mi day ride. S0 me and my wife thought it would be neat to have some off road bikes. Last March we bought two new 09 klx 250's. We did alot of riding last year on the klx's packing up and camping over the weekend ect. So for about a year i've wanted to ride the transam trail but due to a normal job i knew I'd never get 4-5 weeks off. Well maybe it's good or maybe its bad but AT&T layed me off in OCT so now I seem to have extra time. I was thinking if I'm still unempolyed in JUNE of 2011 It would be a perfect time to ride the transam trail from NC to OREGON and back but a different route. I thought about renting a uhaul and pulling it back from around new mexico but the cheapest i can find is about 1000.00 and whats the fun in that. I guess i'm gonna plan on about a 8500 mi trip on two wheels. What I hope yal can help me with is do u think the klx 250 (abit small i know) can handle such a trip? And it looks like I'll be solo as of now so is anyone else thinking about riding all or any of the trail next summer?
