My best friend and I will be starting a 2 week adventure on May 22nd. We previously rode the Sam's TAT route from Moab UT to Port Orford OR during summer of 2013. That ride was just under 1,800 miles both on XR650R's. We were dropped off in UT and picked up in OR. Fast forward 9 years, no more 650's, this time we are going to try big bikes...KTM 990's. We will be mostly using GPS Kevin's tracks this time. Last time we had a very detailed plan with daily mileage and gas stops. This time we have a loose plan and are leaving a little more time to adjust on the fly. Day 1 we will meet up in Williams CA on the 22nd. Instead of blasting up I5 we will ride backroads/highways through Chico, Chester, Lassen and end up in Alturas. Day 2 we will head over to Cedarville and pickup Kevin's route into Nevada. On this day we are going to deviate a bit and use some of Sam's tracks to get to Virgin Valley campground. From there we are will probably go to Denio and on to Fields and then back on Kevin's route. From this point the plan is to motor on to Moab. We are able to camp but will take motels when available. From Moab the plan is to follow the LA tracks back through UT, into AZ, and onto Las Vegas NV. From Vegas we will likely hit the highway and quickly return up 395 to Reno and then back to CA. As I said we will adjust the route as needed and depending on the number of issues we encounter. Just looking to be on the bike and trail for an extended trip and away from WORK! I will try to post a daily update with mileage completed, a quick note and a picture. My bike is a low mile 2012 990R. Suspension was done with heavier springs, motoZ tires, skid plate, pegs, seat concepts seat, Tusk medium aluminum paniers, 1 gal rotopax.
