    TrikePilot, this was an awesome RR and I'm very thankful for you sharing it. I'm in Lynchburg and I'd like to catch up with you sometime over coffee or brews to chat about the logistics of the transformation from stock to TBDBITW your bike went through. I recently converted my ride from a Bonneville to an Explorer and am interested in suggestions on what to mod to make it more TAT friendly.

    Nice ride report. And excellent review of an under-assuming adventure bike. Ride on!

    The CO high passes. Should be plenty of pix and vids in this trip report. The sand in UT was interesting but short-lived. The UTBDR had the most consistent amount of engaging terrain. Oregon felt the most remote.
