Thanks for the heads up guys! Nate bought an extra fuel can and we did some mad number crunching before heading out thanks to you guys! The KLR was fine for the ride over, I've been getting 50-55 sometimes even 60 mpgs out in these elevations. The KTM had 2 gallons magically fall from the sky while he was running on reserve in the Sheldon region. I really, really, really wanted to get a video of a mobile KLR refuel for the Austrian machine. Maybe next time....so heads up to you future TAT riders, McDermitt-Lakeview no fuel! Plan accordingly. We're chilling at a motel tonight waiting for spare parts to arrive at the post office tomorrow. Hopefully Nate will have rear brakes for Oregon. I don't know how he handled that bike across the state of Nevada without rear brakes...

Have fun, ride safe and enjoy the journey.
Pete!!! Heal up quick man! Glad to hear your home safe. Deans been riding with us through Nevada, not exactly the best state to cross solo along the TAT...But he is stuck with our escapades and "style" of travel.

Oregon!

We made it into OR last night! Only one state left! Kinda sad. We have had a blast!

We stayed one night in the Humbolt National Treeless Forest.







We made it into Denio just in time for my 30th birthday. We racked up a $120 tab with like 2 and 3 dollar drinks. The bartender said of the ones she counted (not the ones that were bought for us) she was on 18 shots.



Wild horses. Interesting trying to dodge their giant piles of shit.





Here is my refueling savior Pat. Man that KTM sucks up the petro!



Just a little taste of California. It was nice getting back into the cool mountain air.





Art's TAT face. There is a layer of Nevada on him.

Question Oregon or bust!

Nice! We coasted into Lakeview 14 miles into Kristen's reserve tank, 7 into mine. Pushed on into the fun sand of Oregon (we thought we left that shit behind in Nevada!! Lol). Heads up... No gas in Tiller until Tues at 11am. We missed it last night by an hour and they're closed Mondays. Pushed it to Fortune Branch about 210 miles. Have fun on in Oregon and all it's little surprises ;-)

Hey ho! Great adventure guys! I'm in CO taking care of some business before I continue on my "modified TAT" ride. Wish I had managed to catch up with some folks... my crew ditched earlier than planned and I am motoring, carefully, solo now.

Question: Pardon my stupidity, but I can just ship to myself care of a Post Office and pick it up, yes? No special anything needed?

Keep up the awesome RR and ride safe.

New breaks!

I haven't had rear breaks since UT. I rode all through NV without them. Did, OK. Put it down a lot. The guys at KTM Twins hooked me up and got the parts out to me. Just a unknown piston swap.

Well we flashed this pic of you to our bar tender in The Denio Junction bar.

Seems she remembers you to quite well

You might want to check your credit card bill for the cleanup fee

She tells of you drinking all her Jack, all her Tequila, and all her Captain Morgan.

Epic.

Update: the other bar tender asked us if we were with you guys...

Update2: He also said you need to post some other photos that you found on you camera from that night...

The funny thing is, these guys had no idea we did the same thing to the AR state sign. What a coincidence!!
