I posted our track file here: http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/appalachia-frankenstein-track.1244118/ I cleaned it up for a couple of dead ends we hit and rerouted around. This is about 60-70% off the pavement with a 10 mile section here and there that gets quite gnarly but nothing that can't be done/fun on a big bike if you have some skill. Now, on the subject of sand. I've ridden some serious sand when we did the old Nevada section of the TAT and it was slow going with more than a couple of dirt naps in our group. Since that ride I went off to the BMW Off Road school in Greer SC for a couple of days and came to terms with deep soft sand there. We actually came to enjoy those sections on the SEAT as fun challenges. Rules for the soft sand: - Forget what you read about going fast and keeping the front light. Not something that anyone can do on a larger ADV bike for miles at a time. - Stand on the pegs and keep a very light grip on the bars - if you can flap your elbows like wings, your grip is probably light enough. Steer the bike with peg weighting. - Keep your eyes way out in front of you. If you look down at the sand, that's where you will end up - napping in the sand. - Go no faster than you want to be going when you take that inevitable dirt nap. Just keep it moving without roosting up the sand - just churning the rear tire through it. Even with all that, you'll end up like this from time to time: That was a non-event and felt like falling into a feather bed. Most of the sandy sections of the SEAT are not as bad as shown in this photo. It became pretty easy to keep up a good pace through the sandy sections.
