Greetings all! First, I am new to the forum. Just got a brand new XR650l, still shinny! However, I am not a new rider, I'm returning to the dirt after a 12 years vacation.
Home is South Carolina.
My first question, planning a trip with friends on the TAT. Looking to do a 3 day ride west, then a 3 day return to the start point. Trying to decide if we should start in Jellico, or start further south in Tennessee? I hear lots of paved roads until you hit western Tenn.? Thoughts? Is the ride from Jellico fun on dual sport bikes? (XR650l,DR650,DR400)
We will trailer to our start point, leave the tow vehicle, and return to it 4-5 days later. Trying to make the most of our time away, can be in Tenn. quickly via truck on the interstate vs the long back road ride on the bikes. Anybody did the trailer option? Where did you leave your tow vehicle while away on the TAT?
Thanks for your time! Lloyd
