What are we getting ourselves into?

The Trans-America Trail (TAT) is a 5,000 mile westbound dual-sport motorcycle ride across America. The route is a combination of dirt, gravel, jeep, forest, and farm roads. We will ride over abandoned railroad grades and drop down into dried up creek beds. There will be mud, sand, snow, and rocks. The TAT is not meant for the faint of heart, but it does belong to the dual-sport rider.

The TAT starts in North Carolina, skirts along Arkansas and Missippippi, making it's way directly across Kansas towards the rockies. In the heart of Colorado is where things really start to get hairy. Trails get steeper and the riding slower as the scenery goes from openness to sharp peaks. The home stretch takes you through Utah and SE Oregon, ending at the Pacific Ocean in Port Orford.

We'll be following the route on the unbeaten path, exploring and shooting every step along the way. Capturing everything we find as we get lost and find the oft-overlooked epic.
