Adventure Bike Weekend Trip

We took a DR650 and an Africa Twin for a weekend trip up in the mountains. We had some nice open roads, dirt trails, and mountain climbs. There was one climb in particular where the twin got stuck just before the peek of a mountain because of elevation, thick mud, and leaves. (It was still rocking its stock tires). We had to manually turn it completely around on the hill and ride back down to get it unstuck. It was a great adventure full of amazing mountain views, lakes off in the distance, and endless dirt and gravel terrain!

Since the TAT is out for 2017 we are going to switch to the KAT (Kentucky Adventure Tour).  By we I mean, my brother, nephews, and myself. 

The KAT is a loop on back roads in Kentucky.  It should take 5 to 7 days and will be a great test for doing the TAT.

The original plan was to ride the Trans America Trail the summer of 2017.  This trip will take about 30 days at 200 miles per day.  As of right now it looks like this trip will have to be put off till 2018.  

The Bush Pig

In Australia they call a Suzuki DR650 a bush pig. I find it a fitting name. She is not great at any one thing, but is good all around. From interstate to single track, she can do it. Quick ride to Starbucks or go around the world, she can do it.
