Reckon Sambors pix in this one are among the best

Well worth a couple of hours even if you don't use it for the article.

+1 for the Sani Pass BTW. I've got unfinished business there, damn my lack of ability and hopeless Bridgestones

Mmmm, stitching all the 50 roads together will probably make one nice loop, huh ;-) .... "The ADV-way accross the globe"

lol, that's not a made up language, it's Cree (Indian). Other than Hydro workers, the Cree are the only people up there. Here's an example of another sign up there

Okay, I got this email from Guy Proctor at MCN. This is epic!

---------------------------------------------
Hi Chris,

Right, brilliant help from your guys. One way and another I'm up to
43. I'm happy to trim this back to 40 rather than add makeweights, but
if there are any obvious omissions, would you be able to tell me?

Also, I really need a stunning sums-it-all-up image, at high-res, with
a huge clear sky on it, as an opening image. Happy to pay for it as I
mentioned. Do you have any calendar-type images to hand I might be
able to get permission to use?

Thanks again for all your help,

Guy

USA--Western Trans America Trail

I'm not a world traveler--never will be.
But I have traveled extensively on the US, Mexico and Baja.
I'm 59 years old and have been riding all my life.
The best ride I've ever been on was the Western Trans Am Trail in the USA.
Link to maps and ride: http://www.transamtrail.com/

The Eastern portion for me was just almost boring to me compared to the Western part.

It is extremely remote---gas, food and water almost not availa
ble most of the days riding. Some of it is much easier and better done on a 650 or smaller bike.

The western part runs for several thousand miles from the Oklahoma/Arkansas border to Port Orford Oregon. 95% unpaved.

I rode it with my friend "GasPipe"--and will never forget it.

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

I nominate this shot by Sakurama from his Trans-Lab ride report. Don't know if there'd be usage issues though -- I know Rev'It bought a bunch of his images from that trip.



They'd be welcome to use any of my shots if they think they're good enough. My personal favorite is this one.

Hopefully not too late!

NAME French Line across the Simpson Desert, Australia
Start: Mt Dare Homestead
Finish: Birdsville
Country: Australia
Approx distance (days or miles): 320 or 1100 sand dunes
Summary: [25 to 40 words on the terrain, highlights and hazards]

huge piles of sand and heaps of them. highlights include big red, the final dune to cross standing at 40m high. look out for the soft white sand through the centre that will swallow an entire front wheel.

Lurkers opinion

For a starter pic on the article I vote for Simon and Lisa's pic of Fishtail mountain - tajikistan- it was photo of the week on their site two weeks ago.

They also had a ride through the Gobi - Crazy journey, but I mean it in a nice way.
http://www.2ridetheworld.com/index.html
maybe the Gobi is a top 50

Other great pics on www.advfactory.com - awesome pics - Sambor is the man!!!

So many choices it is hard to just pick 50

Don't know is there some other pictures of Prokletije on the forum, but am sure there are high-res pictures of transalpina on the forum, and I might add much better then those I tuck. Say where to send the high-res ones of the Prokletije, I have a lot!

I hope this thread keeps rolling after the story submission deadline. There are some seriously good ideas coming out of this.

Agreed. Though to be useful, this thread needs to keep close to its title, and list stretches of ADVroad that people have particularly enjoyed. Otherwise, the thread simply becomes just another random collection of ride reports and odd photos.
