Fantastic job, guys!

I've done some of the TAT and you have my respect.

Really great ride and report. You should be very proud of yourselves, both of you.

Best report ever.

Note to anybody that wants to learn about BLM road numbers...anything that ends in a point one is a dead end. 38-2-8.1 dead end, 34-6-9.3 dead end...only a standard 34-6-8 is a through road.

You guys rule!!!

great report!

you've proved to all of us who even consider doing the TAT 2up that it's possible, it just requires a strong passenger, and a lot of courage!

congrats to you both!

Epic! I love it!

You two DEFINITELY need to do South America. It has everything you loved about the TAT and much less of the bad things. Awesome dirt roads, amazing natural beauty, endless remote areas to explore, you can always find good food, riders are treated like heroes by everyone. Go!

I have alsways wanted to tour offroad with my wife, she has never been keen.

You story has inspired me to have another go at getting her to come along.

Thanks so much for the entertainment and inspiration.


I often wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost
