Documentary film project about riding the Trans-America Trail.

Follow along with us this July with our daily “Travelogues” and web-video-diaries as our film crew documents riding the Trans-America Trail. The documentary, “Road Less Traveled”, will follow two brothers as they ride their motorcycles across the 5,000 mile "Trans-American Trail" — an off-road motorcycle adventure traversing the United States on a series of 4x4 trails, fire-roads and single-track trails. The journey begins at the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee, riding through ten states and countless towns, before finishing at the Pacific Coast of Oregon.

The film will highlight three areas of the journey; the brothers relationship as they ride their motorcycles on 5,000 miles of dirt trails, the Trans-America Trail itself, and the adventures along the way of the local lifestyles and quirks of Small Town, U.S.A.

The idea of the documentary about the Trans-America Trail has been a long-time dream of filmmaker James Beatty – and this July, the dream becomes reality. The documentary is produced by Unseen Voices Productions, in association with Motorrad Media www.motorradmedia.com.

We are very optimistic about filming our documentary and we’re setting our sights high with plans to have the documentary shown on cable networks such as Discovery’s Travel Channel, the OLN Network and the Speed Channel to name a few. In addition to the cable networks will be the sales of DVDs through distribution.

To follow along with us on the trail, visit the “Travelogues” section of the official movie website at: www.roadlesstraveledmovie.com

Kinda makes a person wonder how many days and hours Sam has put into development of this trail. Amazing.

looking forward to riding along on the journey. Reminds me of an American version of Long Way Round.

Best of luck to James and the brothers.

What kind of bikes will they be riding?

I looked at the (very nice) website, but all all I could find was one mention of a "BMW GS"

Sam's done an amazing job with creating the maps and roll charts for riding the Trans-America Trail - how many hours??? Considering how accurate his maps are, I imagine "countless" hours!

Check the new look of his website:

to make it real

You must say constantly say "today was really hard", and also find some gun owners with shady friends .Testicle soup is mandatory.
PLEASE name a section "The road 'o bones"

Long way cross?
