If you look carefully you can see where the cables attached to the back of his coat and also his boots are strapped to the bikes frame. The crane is just outside of the photo so all I had to do was erase the wire. Wasnt an easy task as the crane almost fell over from the weight

You haven't seen Rider23 ride, obviously. He can make pigs fly. Here's the evidence.

Just a good-natured DR vs KLR cheap-shot than any kind of slight against another ADV'er

I never thought it was anything else, but Ted really is that good.

I pulled down the GPX files - worked well. Did I miss something - is there no set of files for the TNE?

Still fine tuning the TNE track files, another week or two and they'll be ready and available.

Thanks for all the positive feedback, there is quite a bit of content that is being worked on and in the works. I lost a bunch emails along the way and I apologize if you have a photo on the site and the photo credit isn't correct or is missing. If this is the case please send me an email


Winter has begun to settle in for many of us in Canada, once again a huge shout out to everyone who has become involved in the TCAT project. Next summer should prove to be another busy summer for the route. I'm dedicated to a six week trip to ride the western half of the TCAT. Crazy stoked on that, i'll get to meet Ross, Chris and David. These three lads have created the western half of the route and deserve a big thanks for their effort .

Somewhere along the way of that trip I intend to have an open welcome to anyone who would like to meet up and join me for a few days of the route....early August probably....Medicine Hat in Alberta maybe.....a week ride through Cypress Hills, Badlands, up and over Edmonton, Forestry Trunk Rd, Canmore, Spray Lakes, Deadmans Pass, Bull River, Settlers Rd and terminating in the East Kootenays. A long ways away indeed but vacations often require advanced notice. It would be fantastic to have traveling companions for part or all of that section of the TCAT. I suspect a week to ride it at a decent pace (with a pub night in Banff of course). If your interested, shoot me an email

Bike is off the road for the season and getting some much deserved attention, thanks once again as the support and enthusiasm is overwhelming
