I have a 2015 Tiger 800 XCx and a 2014 KTM 250 XC – W I have done three trips totaling 20,000 miles on the Tiger. Phoenix – Arctic Ocean; 30 days 10,000 miles including 1,600 miles of dirt. Two trips up the Rockies and down West coast with some dirt thrown in. Each trip was about 5,000 miles. I ride single track and desert on the KTM every chance I get. I want do TAT in two trips. New Mexico – Colorado border to Oregon Pacific coast and same start point going east to the Atlantic. The Tiger is way too much bike in conjunction with my skills and physical ability. I’m disappointed with the trend of the new supposedly light adventure bikes. So: · The KTM smoker is already a great set up with all the proper protections and spark arrestor. · Arizona has three levels of motorcycle registration; between trail and street, there is a registration with the ability to connect trails. For all practical purposes the plate and registration is indistinguishable from the full registration and I haven’t had any problems riding it in Utah and Colorado. The bike has electric start, headlight and tiny tail light. · Globtrottin combination pannier and rear rack $355.00 · Globtrottin 22 liter panniers $160.00 · Acerbis 5.3 Gallon Tank $295.00 · Baja Desings 4200 Lumens 3.3 Amp LED Hdlt $337.00 · Baja Designs Mode switch amp reducer $22.00 · Proper spring suspension set up $300.00 Everything else for the trip I already have. What is wrong with this idea? All comments – suggestion welcome, appreciated.
