    I'll try to follow this as well. A friend and I are going to do a modified version of the tat in 2015 after I get back from deployment.

    Very nice! I see you found the importance of the roll charts, hard to explain till you see it. Looks like you guys are off to a good start! Gear makes big differences in how you do on the TAT and the research is half the fun.

    Enjoy!!!:clap

    If you go to Mark's website, bigdogadventures.com, you will see multiple screen loads of links to his various dual sport adventures. He has been everywhere! He has some great advice on mods to the various bikes he as ridden as well as a HUGELY helpful video on clothing and gear.
    His riding gear video is:

    I have this on my phone and really like it. With the downloaded maps you dont have to worry about signal. It will eat your battery. I just keep mine connected to a 12v charger while riding. There is some info about it here on adv in the gps section. It has its limitations like not being waterproof and such but is a great alternative to a real moto gps.
