If you missed the title, this RR is not being documented along the way and is being done quite a bit after the fact. Coming off of last years trip on what's left of the TWVT I figured I'd step things up a bit. I recruited 2 other inmates to join me (on my 701) on this endeavor @StannisBaratheon (Penn on a DR650) and @montanatravels (Mitch on a DRZ400 SM with S wheels) , figuring that having 2 people to help push stuck (or broken down white KTM) bikes would be better. If you're not familiar with the route, I highly recommend reading about it here: https://advrider.com/f/threads/the-kentucky-adventure-tour-kat.919224/. Jeff, the creator of the KAT, continues to do an amazing job maintaining this route, listening to reports of closures and such and modifying things to keep it going. So we've got 939 miles of main route and 162 of optional "hard" and one "extreme" that's primarily in KY, but some WV, VA, and TN along the way. The hards sometimes add mileage and sometimes cut off main loop mileage. Here is what was planned: After reality sets in (The alternating colors are each day): In the grand scheme of things I think we did pretty good. We ended up 2 riders mostly finishing, only one set of early wiped out brake pads (701), a bent clutch lever (DRZ), a bent brake pedal (DR), 3 broken blinkers (one each), a new set of tires for the DRZ, and an intermittent headlight (DRZ). Oh, and there was also that time the DRZ almost caught fire. We also went into this intending to camp every night once underway and only did that once.
