  grin ITS TIME!  grin

Been talking about this one since I rode into my driveway from the Trans America trail
(Tennessee to Oregon... all in the dirt)..

Ride story here
http://www.kxriders.com/forums/index.php/topic,5305.0.html

Would have happend last year, but having a kid kind of ruined that..   (did 3800 miles through the sierras on my BMW though, not all bad)

I have been given the "GO AHEAD" from work, and the wife..

Plan on leaving middle to end of July..  be gone for a month and a half or more...

Starting at Mexico Boarder... Riding to Canada... then turning around... and riding back to Mexico boarder  ON ANOTHER ROUTE..
Never touch the same trail twice

Should be about 8700 miles or so (lots of fun detours).. 98% dirt

Here is a pic of the routes for "the way up"

you should do that on your k5.

Would be hard to find race fuel the entire way Id think..

that and there is one day, that you need to be able to do 235miles on one tank of fuel... as there isnt any for that distance...

Hmmm wonder how the Kx would like 12,000 Feet??

Man it would be fun to take it though..

Will you guys be documenting the run with a camera or video or something?

  I mean how cool would it be to pass down a trip like that to the kids.  Maybe they'd retrace your routes and all.
Any way Looks very Cool!

Still waiting for a report from a riding buddy and his brother who did this route in July.   They left around the 1st.    Good rider.  Took his KTM950 on this one.    I remember an email a few days before he left.  Trying to cut down on his total weight in the panniers.    Was afraid he would forget something vital though.
