It's finally time!
After months of planning, preparation, ordering, installing, fixing, replacing, reinstalling, adjusting, cussing and LOTS of blood, sweat and tear... it's time to head out on my most adventurous trip so far. Crossing these United States on the TranAmerica Trail! 5200 miles of off road tracks linking some of this country's most beautiful sites and scenery.
I want to give a HUGE shout out to the sponsors and supporters of this adventure, without them we could NOT have been ready!
Mosko Moto and Wolfman for some tremendous adventure luggage. Eli at KTM Twins for getting us some crucial parts on time! Klim and AlpineStars for the top shelf enduro gear. Motion Pro for your tools and cables. Perun Moto and Rade Garage for the awesome 690 parts and pieces. CJ Designs for the KTM parts. Seat Concepts for the super comfy seat and getting it here in time! Go to the "BIkes" page on the site to see all the other parts we're using on this adventure. THANK YOU ALL!!!
My riding partners (Rod Johns, Corey and Mike Gamache) and I, had our last conference call last night before each of us head out next week to the starting point. We are all excited to point of not sleeping. We hope everyone keeps track of our progress by going to the DeLorme tracking page here on the website and clicking the link to follow us live via DeLorme's satellite tracker. We hope to be able to deliver some AWESOME photos, videos and ride reports via this site, the Dualsportjunkies Facebook page and Instagram page. We'll also be "blogging" here, when ever we have internet, hopefully every few days.
So stay tuned!
