Sorry for all the questions but the only foolish question is the one not asked.

The green tracks/routes define the pig/big bike paths. That is stated in the document. A big bike path is the foundation of this project. An appropriate match? For me it is. Many have run the sections you speak of on Vstroms, 1200 GSs, and 990s. Skyclad ran it on a 990 from PA to this years rendezvous, there's a report out there somewhere on it.

HulkedUp graciously contributed the overwhelming majority of the Mass section. You will find the other green sections to be comparable.

Relax, read the document again.

When you get into PA,MD,WV,VA etc, what is the dirt road to paved road ratio??
I only found one leg of the trip, the Covington to Marion leg that listed 178 miles and an average moving speed of 43 MPH = 4.13 hours. Does this sound correct?
And how much of a dirt road route is it overall?? The reason I ask is, I'm trying to have stopping points for the night along the route or close to it and I don't want to drive to short a distance and end up checking into a hotel at say 3 pm and be twiddling my thumbs when I could have been still riding on and averaging a longer day on the route/road. I have 10 days to play with and I'm trying to make it all count.

On my ride in May, I cut the route up into chunks about 200 miles each day. I agree that is not much distance, but it does leave lots of time for checking out the area you are riding through. Not much point in taking the scenic route if you are not going to enjoy the scenery.

BTW, the thread about my ride is linked in my signature. It is not the portion you are riding, but it should give you a good idea of the difficulty. I did NOT use any of the big bike bypasses, but those were in the TeT-S portion anyway.

If you'll look real close at the time stamps in that track log, you'll see that it took 440 days to complete. LOL The tracks are a compilation of many attempts/revisions. Some people make the recommended days easy, some struggle. It is impossible for me to recommend anything other than the days as they are laid out, that is unless I've run a few laps with you.

We haven't kept track of a "dirt" percentage, it's not real important to me. I can say, as a general rule, it gets dirtier the farther South you go.

Chip,
I received the 2 files you sent.
It is greatly appreciated. I'm a little technically challenged so I am going to find some dedicated time to sort through it all. I live in SW PA so I am particularly interested in the WV stuff. I have a path I have been working on going through the center of the state N & S, if you ever need some help.
Thanks again,
drtrnr

Hi Chip,

Received the pdf. Thanks. This is a strong possibility of becoming one of our next motorcycle documentaries.

Looking forward to going over the gpx files.

Got It

Chip- PDF received! This will be my first trip longer than 2-3 days, and I'm really looking forward to it! It's also going to serve as a test run for the setup I'm planning on using for the TAT this summer. -Chris

First, you need to read the owners manual. You need to find out if it is in fact possible. And if it is possible, just how many tracks, routes, and waypoints you can load. There are also subtleties such as how many points can be in a track or route.

There is no one size fits all answer to your question, the answer is specific to your unit.

In the mean time, you can view the file in google earth.
