Reise: the German word for Journey. I thought it was only fitting that this word be used as a heading for our trip on the Trans America Trail. From my planning thread here, my friend and I have been preparing two DR650's for a journey across the United States on Sam's famous TAT. The trip begins as we leave for Jellico, TN and the trail head. From there we traverse the trail making a side stop for a day along the White Rim Trail in Utah. Maps of our journey from Tavis' RR. Bikes DR650's - Mine DRZ400 - Tavis' RR Index. Note that some of our stops were made out of necessity and not Sam's recommended destinations.
