Tag along on the TAT?

I'm going through a divorce and realize I could get away for a month plus if I could find someone doing the TAT. I'm an experienced motorcycle rider and dirt bike rider, but I have no Dual Sport experience. I've done long camping trips on my FZ1 and I've done multi day trips on my 450x. I was thinking of running out and buying a KLR and some gear and going MIA for a month. The best case for me would be to glom on to someones trip who has already done all the work, sounds bad I guess, but I'll buy the beer. Maybe departure May, June, July????

No help on the TAT deal but; I know where you are mentally and feel for ya.

Getting lost on two wheels can cleanse the soul. Have a friend that knows your area of travel and check in with them on occasion. Wouldn't hurt to be in a motorcycle friendly area like Tellico Plains TN / N Georgia mountains for example.


Have fun and be safe bro!
