since so many of you guys in the states have done the TAT and reported about it it got me thinking. Since I'm always looking for new offroad destinations I asked my little girl about her opinion and she did not say no.
And so a plan was made for this year. First I send an order to Sam and after a couple of days the postman brought us this:
Then Sandra found a transporter with a reasonable price to get our bikes to the US. Well Boston is not really close to Tellico Plains, but it was by far the cheapest we could find.
Then I got to the phone and called a couple of motorcycle dealers and asked if one of them had us a crate for the flight. I was lucky that one dealer had two in his backyard that were waiting for the junkyard. We jumped into the car and picked them up.
This is what we got:
I had to do a bit of disassembling to get the bikes into the crates and in the end they looked like this:
Then the day of delivery to the airport came. Sandra got a truck from the company she works for and here we are about to do the loading:
And here our babies are at the airport waiting to be taken in.
The down side is that my right shoulder isn't ok. Having pain in it for over 4 months now I finally landed at a shoulder specialist and after looking at the mri pictures the doctor said that two tendons were a little torn off and that I would have to have a operation. I told him about my TAT plan and he right away said: go and ride! (He's a biker) We will have the operation in January. So I got an injection and two boxes of painkillers and the order to have fun. So I said to myself: you are going to take it easy, no falling, and if pick up the bike carefully.
By now our bikes are in Montreal and hopfully are in a truck to Boston tommorrow. We will board a plane to the states on thursday and can hopfully start to ride on friday or saturday.
We will see.
See you in the US soon.
