Nevember. Anything bigger than a 650 is gonna be a problem when it rains - which it does year-round.
Got to play on the KAT last weekend from slade to Beattyville. Took a few pics. Got some vids coming
Hi, im new to the forum, i live in Louisville, i have been a street rider for a long time and decided to buy a klr650 to try some adventure riding. I rode dirt bikes as a kid. Im looking for anyone that wants to go riding , hoping to try to ride part or all of the KAT. I could also use some help in the gps mapping . I have a garmin montana 680, im pretty sure its supposed to be able to display the route. please contact me if you can help
Hi Mark, if your on FaceBook join the KAT page as it's a lot more active...

Downloaded the tracks. Opening in google earth pro. Taking a long time. Not sure if it will open. I'm trying to get a good look at an overall view of where the trail goes. I have access to 900 acres in Monticello through my bro-in-law. (7th generation farm boy). Anyway, if it passes anywhere close to his properties, I'm thinking about starting up an annual get-to-gether-camp-party-trail ride. Just diving into this, so Jeff, if google fails to read these tracks, I'll be back here asking some questions. Thanks a lot by the way for putting this all together, I haven't read through the entire thread, and am not up to speed yet, but I am curious as to why you did this and how you make any money on it. You have a shop, or campsite or something you created this to drive business to? Would be a great idea anyway! Merica!
Hey Jeff, the link on here (http://annessky.net/kat/) for Hatfield-McCoy Resort is a 404. Seems like they're redirecting to a new domain but the home.html isn't there.
You’ll need to conver it to a KML file for GE to read it. I can do this for if you need.
I'll see if I can figure that out.
This will convert it. I use it often. http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/
That got it, thanks!
Thanks, I'll get it fixed.
Or use gpsvisualizer.com
That's what I use.
Looks like a good section of the trail is near Monticello. About 30 miles or so from my brother in laws house. Williamsburg heading west towards Pine Knot, then all the way to Jellico, what is that, about a 200 mile loop? Ride North from Jellico back to Williamsburg. Looks mostly paved with one difficult section south east of Winfield. Is that section doable with a DR650 and average riders? Or is that a lighter enduro trail for more experienced riders?
There's lots of gravel in there and 1 really good hard section that can be done on the DR with some good off road tires.
Me and a buddy are gonna try out the Beattyville area again this weekend. Stayin at lago lindas. Anyone else gonna be in that area?
The tunnel just southwest of Beattyville will be under water most likely.
Copy that! We'll find a way round it. Braap!
Looking at heading on the KAT May 8th on my DRZ. I've done some of it but none of the hards. May be by myself which I really don't want to do for obvious reasons. Hard 11 appears to be the most difficult with the ledges and loose rock (and mud) from the two vids I've seen on youtube. I know having a lighter bike is the way to go but it can get heavy real quick. Have any of you pros gone on the hards solo, with what and how did it go? Thanks!
