When I make that ride it will be measured in days, not hours.

18+ hours if you count the whole day. My wife was laughing at my red baboon ass when I got home.

Mabey I could start and finish in Dallas and get a bunburner plate frame
Would 50/50 street/dirt count?

one way road??

i am about to buy my first adventure type bike, and have been looking at this ride. why do they say you can only go east to west? any thoughts on why this is the case for the TAT?

This sentiment is based on the facts that the maps, roll charts, and associated mileages and turn directions are written in an East to West fashion. But once the maps are digitized into GPS, they can be easily ridden either way...

Nice

Hey, Congrats on the ride. I am planning on doing the OK section in Sept. but my fifty year old ass won't set in the saddle that long! I plan on taking two days with a hotel stop in the middle somewhere.

Now that looks like a hoot! I came through OK on the TAT the last week of July. I loved it! Especially the Tall Grass Prairie Preserve. Had a get off 20 miles west of Newkirk when I came over a rise and irrigation had flooded the road. Going 60 something and got whoaed to 30 something and went down in the mud. Bike pretty beat up but continued on to Colorado. You can haul ass on those 30 mile straight stretches.

I did 6500 miles yesterday, but it took a car and four planes to do it

Good Job! I hope to hear more about it at Tulsa Tuesday Pub Crawl.

Oh... and thanks for not posting any pix of your red butt

Wow. All I can say. You sir have inspired me. I'm moving to Wichita by the new year and I'm going to put this on the top of my priorites. You did one helluva job man.

Thanks, but I'd be cautious and pre-ride this route now. There has been so much oil and gas activity on the western stretch of the OK TAT, the conditions change weekly, I imagine.

Will do. Seems like prerunning it a time or 5 isn't a bad idea seeing as I'd like to just keep up with your pace. Thanks for the advice!
