Intro: First of all I'd like to give a HUGE thanks to Cannonshot for his gps tracks on the Continental Divide, they really allowed us to do this section of trail with ease, and were a great tool. Thanks so much!!!!! We were so inspired by his original post that we just had to do it ourselves. The players: Eric the Red - Eric and I first met getting our comp sci degrees, and became fast friends. He is the one who talked me in to getting my first (functional) motorcycle, my WRR, in the first place about a year ago to go on the TAT with him, and he has been great in teaching me all I need to know about motorcycles. He currently works as a web app programmer, has been racing super moto (which is what got him started on bikes) and has a great wife who is currently learning to ride on a TTR to go on our next trip with us! Crispy Adam - Eric's little brother, Adam earned his nickname working as a welder for the last year or so. Currently Adam is getting ready to move to Cleveland, having quit welding and gotten a job at the Cleveland Art Museum to put his true passion to good use. Congrats to him! Adam got into motorcycles riding his old KLR around France when he was studying abroad and got his XR650L by trading in his SV650 right after I got my WRR, having been convinced to go on the TAT with us. Yours truly - As mentioned I met these guys getting my comp sci degree, and right now am employed as a firmware programmer. I have always wanted a bike but spent too much time and money in school, but having gotten out I decided to take the plunge. My first bike was a '69 BSA which I figured I could put back together quickly. I was wrong (still working on it) and in the meantime was convinced by Eric to get a WRR for the TAT last year. That was a blast and got me hooked. I was the slowest one of our group on that trip having been literally the first trail I ever went on, so I have been practicing dirt of all types as much as possible since. Also I picked up a Street Tripe R.
