I wonder if there's a way we can make it start from Montreal... maybe a little stop on St. Catherine's street the night before for the Americans.

Going over the route as we're planning the pre run trips and it's beginning to look like 350 km's "may" be needed

Oh there's options but they don't end up near civilization for a lloonnnggg time . That doesnt mean the route is mandatory by any means, once again we'll just provide a suggested route and some places to camp. If you happen to end up there we'll cheers a beer


2012 will be more online with what the TCAT is all about.....remoteness, wilderness and fun terrain


In two weeks we're going to ride the first days portion of the route that Jimmy has laid out, then a week or so later a group of us are going to take some trucks and drive the second and third days of the route. Later in August I'll be solo for a few weeks pre running some other sections of the TCAT and TNE routes and will return to Ottawa via the three days of the TCAT that'll be used for the 2012 Roaming Rally. Blah blah, the route will have been driven and ridden prior to everyone showing up nex May . Doable....although I will never have ridden it is the spring

Hold my beer and watch this

350km == 217 miles. best get your rotopax out if you have a 200mi range (yes, that's all of you f800gs owners!). those on GSAs no need to worry; your C130 supertanker sized gas tank will carry you far enough! in fact, maybe you can provide refueling services!

Hey Ted

I'm interested in the first days portion. What dates are you looking at so I can check the on call schedule.

Hmmmm,, I guess I better start looking for a Safari tank for the SE. If I'm nice with the throttle, I can make 110 miles before the fuel light comes on and then I have about 25 miles before she flames out.

I do like the idea of the "wilderness" camping.

I'm planning on getting the IMS 4.8G tank for my bike, at 55mpg... 264 miles. Wow, that's still a little tight. Wow, is this even doable?

After the last trip, I was starting to think about building a 1-wheel trailer for my gear.

I think i should get that 6.6G super tanker for the xr for in the forsale thread.. and finally get the Fairing on my bike! Big red instead big black I realy dont like red it ruins the what the hec is that factor. If anyone sees any 640 lights or some cheaper lights that fit in a 640r fairing let me know.. ill be part KTM next year!

my bet is attendance will be WAY down on this ride for next year... alot of the bikes used this year simply don't have that kind of range, so unless everyone has a supertanker at home...

Should we discuss a gas/support truck? I'd consider taking one for the team if it was necessary to make this another great event.
