For the haters:
The transamerica trail thus far has transpired into a mystical yet challenging adventure that one could only enjoy whilst traveling through the American countryside. Not only is the scenery nothing short of spectacular, but the roads continually provide a challenging aspect that caters to all riders. If anybody is even thinking of attempting this trail, I encourage you to prepare accordingly and challenge yourself to limits you never thought attainable.

For the Bros:
The narly TAT rip sesh has been nothing short of epic. The narly roost piles keep it mad chay while the lush pastures of the midwest keep my nature high boosted all day. If any of you groms are pondering on this epic shred, throw down stacks, get a bike, and lay down a knobby trail from coast to coast.


Best response ever! Way to deal with the riff-raff. Keep it up. Great report.

Edit: I just read this thing in it's entirety all the way through. It must have been good. I don't think that's ever happened before. Glad your home safe and sound. I will do this one day.

Great report Megashred. Thanks for taking the time to write a great report and post amazing photos of the trip. One question, what type of camera did you use? Each photo had just the right angle & lighting and really helped me understand what it would be like on the trail. Probably my favorite part of the whole trip was the night you camped out on top of that hill going to sleep at sunset and packing up before the sun came up. I'm planning a TAT in the next year or two as soon as I can get the time to do it. Cheers and hope to see another ride report from you in the future!

That ended up being about 200 miles later when we almost nailed eachother at an intersection. It was a family of four in a landcruiser throwin down on the TAT. we both stopped and laughed about it...but what a cool family vacation.


So I just ran across the ride report of the family in the Land Cruiser! It's on expedition portal (and it is a family of five)!

For the duration of the trip we always looked for fellow adventurers out here way off the normal paths but so far we had seen no one. Sometime close to when this photo was taken we ran into one, almost literally. Coming down a small hill I saw that a road merged with the straight one we were on. I looked briefly and then accelerated gaining momentum for the hill ahead. About the time I was really getting into the throttle -which means I was going maybe 35- my wife and son both started yelling. I look to my left and stomped on the brakes as I make eye-contact with a rider on loaded down Honda 650 who is also braking all out. We both slid to a stop, he much faster than I, and we chatted for a moment about our trip. Turns out we were both headed to Salina, Ok. He, of course, was riding the TAT. We hoped to meet up later but it didn't happen.
