TAT Changes/New Routes

The TAT is having growing pains and going through changes/new routes/improvements and a better over-all DualSport Ride. For the past 20 years, the TAT has been a cross-country adventure for DualSports motorcycles. For more reason that one, the route is undergoing some re-routing. The route will turn North at Green River, UT and go into Idaho then West to the Pacific Ocean. It will be more "rider friendly" with more Gas stops and more Motels. Idaho is a wonderful DualSport ride on a motorcycle and this change will delete the hot sandy sections of Nevada and Utah. The Nevada section will be deleted . Maps Rollcharts and GPS tracks will not be ready until late JUly 2015. I will keep you posted , there is too much to list at this time. Also other changes at the other end, North Carolina will be added to the East end of the TAT, and several new 2-day,4-day and 6-days loops coming off the main route.

OK,

This is great information; BUT who are you and what connection to Sam and the TAT do you have? I'm sorry but there's not many people who will trust this information coming from an anonymous source with this being their first post to the site.

Awesome sounding upgrades to the TAT. I may be swinging the ride in 2015 and live in NC. The extra mileage in my home state is welcome and timing is perfect.

Thanks!

Sam, You have done a fantastic job!

Few riders have any idea how hard a trail like this is to develop. I know you will be riding 2 or 3 miles for every mile that goes on a roll chart. I just found out that you are 4 years older than me, KEEP ON RIDING! Jerry

Good job Sam!
You need to update your signature line asap with your name and website as your screen name is generic.

Why not keep a Nevada option open for those who wish to ride it?
Many say Nevada is the best ADV state in the country for remote desert/mtn routes.
I get asked all the time when is our NVBDR going to happen? It will for sure.

I think the problem for TAT going across Nevada is then Oregon.

Yes Northern/Western Nevada is great Adv/Dual Sport state but not all of it. It doesn't really lend itself to a great Border to Border trail, much better for loops. My NV Statewide Motorized Trail System documents the best that I have found.

I for one think that sounds pretty good. Last year I wouldn't ride past Salina when we did the CO and UT sections. I've been to and worked in NV and just wasn't interested in riding through it. Idaho with mountains and forests sounds great. Although people shouldn't miss the hell of Eagle and Devils canyons.

Sam, excellent work! I love the proposed changes and new route options, especially the eastern extension. Show us the way west!!
