We can't wait to hit the dragon later today...
awesome!! then i'm in. especially when you get to OK since its not far from where i live in southern KS. actually i'm not sure where the TAT runs in OK since i've never seen the maps. BTW, i recomend a little jaunt thru the Gypsum hills west of Medicine Lodge, KS. it's quite a site and many dirt roads thru them.

That spot tracker is just too cool. I'm following along! Keep that battery charged on that thing - if you stay put in the middle of a canyon for a few hours, we'll know to send search and rescue!

Me and a buddy are planning on doing the same thing. Shooting for the trip before either of us turn 40. It's coming up quick!

Will be checking out this thread as I hope to be riding the TAT in a few years. Very interested in how the 690 does on this ride. Don't think I want to ride the TAT on my current 500.

spotted in Bristol

So I'm on my lunch break heading up the parkway back to work and I spot these two with their buddy unloading their bikes in a grassy lot in front of a strawberry stand. There's some good karma for ya, what are the chances of crossing paths right out of the gate? I pulled in and asked for directions to Port Orford, introduced myself and wished them well. Watch out Tellico, they're on their way!

Roknogin, that was an awesome way to start our trip. It was great meeting you, sorry I was spacing out when you asked if I knew how to get to Port Orchard... I thought you were asking about some local place...

We are all tucked in at the Lodge in Tellico plains. We have a good place for dinner and will include it when we post up some Pics. The lodge owner pointed us to it and it was a winner... This may be it for tonight.

Oh and the Dragon was glorious, even on knobbies

I'm in too!

Looking forward so seeing more. When you guys get to the Oklahoma Panhandle portion of the TAT, you are welcome to shop space for bike maintenance if you need it. Just let me know.
