    I'm leaving Knoxville TN either 7/26 after work or early on 7/27 and I plan to ride my KTM950 Adventure Westbound on the TAT through TN and MS and then pick up the MS Hill Country maps that are shown on the TAT website. I'll ride the MHC South and then turn around and ride the whole thing in reverse back to Knoxville. Total TAT/ MHC miles are about 1900 and total trip miles will be 2500+. I have all the maps and roll charts ordered.
    I planned to ride it alone but I'm curious if anyone wants to join me for all or part of the adventure. I'll pack light and ride hard and fast and I plan to stay in hotels. I figure it'll take about 6 days total.
    Let me know if you're interested in joining in the fun.

    Hi Jason; wish I could go but too much going on this week. I'm in north Alabama.
    Hope you post a RR. Sounds like a fun ride.

    75 Bronco, thanks for the interest. Fast to me is riding about as hard as you can all day and not taking many breaks. I figure roughly 2500 miles in 6 days, mostly easy off road stuff but that still averages 400+ miles per day. The sightseeing will be second priority if time allows. Let me know if you're interested in joining for some.
    Thanks, J
