ADV Riding in the SE United States is better than most people presume. Admittedly, not as epic as some trails out West, but nonetheless you can have a great time. A good, example of such a trip is the SEAT. I have one important, personal mission on this trip: Learn to ride in deep sand: miles of it. My nemesis was the sand riding past Green River UT where my TAT trip was defeated by it https://advrider.com/f/threads/planned-a-solo-trip-west-and-ended-up-riding-the-tat.1254049/ Not my bike, but illustrates what happened years ago and how I felt, after my first attempt at sand riding in Moab. Starting my trip near Chatsworth GA, going in a CCW direction. My riding buddy is on a KTM790 and I will ride my 2016 Africa Twin. I have no idea how the sandy parts on the SEAT compare to what I had encountered in the San Raphael Swell UT but any input or local knowledge will be appreciated. My resolve is high and expectations set low as to what will be the outcome. Most likely, the ride report updates will be sporadic, as I will be posting whenever data is available. But eventually, I will complete this report and motivate some riders to take this trip.
