Greetings All! I am doing the TAT west to east Port Orford to Cape Hatteras on a Pan America Special with my trusty sidekick Jake my Australian Cattle Dog. He's rode many miles with me. I am raising money and awareness for a foundation I started called The Unhoused Project battling homelessness locally and globally. My holdup is HD and it having panniers or other accessories needed for the trip. I also have a 25' shortie Skoolie completely built custom and luxury. Looking for a driver for the rig as well as other riders. I have a 2007 GS for sale as well. I had hoped to leave first week of August but now without the right riding equipment I may hit Sturgis and delay the trip yet again. Unless I can get a driver for the bus or HD accessories. I do have a couple sponsors some well known companies and have tried to reach out to HD to get them onboard. It'd be great promotion first man to ride the Trans America Trail on a Pan America Special with his dog. Back to back. Once I get to Cape Hatteras I am turning around and running it back. Whatever the weather barring it's not winter. I'll dodge snow or may hole up in Florida for winter and return in the spring of 2022. Did I mention I am also a former 9/11 firefighter now battling Parkinson's Disease! Should be quite the trip. Any comments are welcome. Good, bad and ugly. I've already heard about every positive and negative thing that can be said and I am unwavering on my mission. Only flexibility is the dates. I'd hate to have to do this in 2022 but if that's my only option then so be it but I'm hoping for some miracles and the ADV gods(and Harley Davidson) to shine on me. I spent 23k on the bike it'd be nice to have the accessories. Donated would rock but I'll pay for them if available. I see great opportunity for HD to see me selling my GS to ride the TAT on the PAS! Come on it's as good of a marketing ploy as Jason Mamoa was in the reveal. At least I'm a real adv rider and a regular guy. Well I used to be a nationally touring headlining comedian but I digress. Anyways bring on the comments and let's have an awesome discussion on my trip. Join the convo or the adventure. I'll be daily vlogging for my YouTube channel and going live in fb and ig as well as updating the links here to follow along. Have an excellent summer of 2021 to all!
