    Both of your videos were great:thumb It cool recognizing many of the places in your second video as places I have ridden. Looking forward to the next video.

    Just found this thread. Great read! My DR650 that I bought a few weeks ago came with one of those Redneckistan, AR stickers on the front fender. Now I know where it came from!

    Next episode is up. This one covers the Ozarks which was some of the nicest riding on the TAT.

    Would love to do a rtw trip on the groms. Could title it slow way round lol. There is actually a Swedish guy doing one right now. Think he has got as far as Thailand.

    Quite a bit going on in this video. We got a taste of the infamous Oklahoma mud, replaced another shock, got some new tires and finally got some mountain views. The first leaky fuel bladder made for a grumpy morning, but we really liked the Black Mesa campsite.

    I remember the feeling when we hit New Mexico and the scenery and smells changed. New Mexico looked really nice. Would be good to go back and explore some time.

    One thing we noticed about Colorado was that the roads were so much busier in comparison to OK and the previous states. Lots of trucks and trailers. Quite a few more bikes too.

    Hope you enjoy this installment. The next three covering the Colorado passes, slick rock and white rim are going to be pretty fun too.

    It absolutely makes my week when you post a new episode!!! As always, thank you both for sharing this wonderful journey. I have to say I hate you just a little because now there is no way I can not do the TAT. I'm going to have to sell a kidney.

    Bravo. Thank you both, again.

    Your ride reports and now the videos are ABSOLULELY addictive. I now have a LOVE/HATE relationship with you both. I love what you've done, I hate that I couldn't come anywhere close to documenting it as entertainingly (in print or video).
