I think everyone gets caught up in the wilderness of Alaska or the mountain view scene of Colorado; it seems they neglect the beauty of places like Nevada, Wyoming, etc.. Sometimes the openness is exactly what I want to feel, and those states excel in that. Yet another report thats influencing my ride next year

Thank you, GSF1200S, I guess our RR is a diamond in the rough. In response to your KLR question, we will be doing a full gear review at the end of the report. Stay tuned for details!

I have never been to this part of Nevada, only Vegas, and the remoteness and solitude of Northern NV was great. However, we both were thinking about the possibility of a crash or a major mechanical. We would be a day from help in some sections of the NV TAT. The TAT is the real deal and I underestimated the TAT's ability to put me in the middle of nowhere on some very technical sections.
