Oklahoma was the end of the TAT for me, I toured Colorado, New Mexico and now Arizona.
I was able to find routes offroad in all the states even outside the TAT though.

I went up to Breckenridge and over to Copper then down through Leadville.

I want to thank Sam for the maps, they were great. I hope to do the full TAT when the season and time permits.

Colorado was under 30 degrees at night and it was beautiful. Santa Fe a favorite was very nice last night. Now I'm in Flagstaff another great town, the weather is mild compared to Colorado but I still expect around freezing in the am.

I'm not sure where to head from here, I would like to continue west though.

I am over 3k miles now and am going to need tires before I make my way home.

Now for pics...

Head west 1-2 days and land at the Pacific Ocean

P.s. If you make it to LA, bonus points for doing a photo montage on Rodeo Drive in full gear.

Well, I'm gonna cruise around Flagstaff for a bit. Then I plan to head up to Grand Canyon National Park after that up to Utah to check out Grand Staircase Escalante.

Maybe Vegas after that...

More pics to come later today.

So I left Utah yesterday and hit some trouble early on. Lost a bunch of gear oil, seems to be fixed now.

I'll keep it short and get some new pics up.

I went up to Zion in Utah, this is a place everyone should go it is amazing.
From there down to Vegas and over accross Death Valley to Bishop CA.

Maybe San Fransico tonight?







My pictures may not be in order, the first few are northern AZ then Utah.

Thumb All right!

You are really covering some ground!

I'm enjoying the pics and hope you are having a blast. Thanks for posting from the road and, if you want, try to elaborate on your journey when you get a chance.

Ride safe!

Thanks for reading, I need will take some time to give more details. I have way more pictures too that I will start posting when my days get shorter. I have been riding dawn to dusk with all the stops and parks I'm checking out so when I get settled I pretty much just eat, sleep and take off again.

I'm in Vancouver WA now about to go up to Seattle. I will likely stay in Seattle for a night then my plan is to run the whole coast on 101 and 1 from here to San Diego.

I'm in for 15 days in 15 states about 5000 miles. I did most of the Eastern TAT from TN to OK and though I got of the trails I have found some great dirt roads in every state since.

This has been an amazing experience.
