Sunray took his bike for a trial run today. 80 miles round trip. From 200 feet all the way up to 6500. Had plenty of power the whole time. Ran like a top and handled excellent. Used 1 gallon of fuel. This is with the bike fully loaded too.

Oops! Yeah, that's what I meant. Income tax.
Anyway, back on topic. Kudos to these guys for what they are doing. I'm building a Franken-CT90 myself and hope to ride at least the TN portion of the TAT on it this summer. Riding the whole thing on a CT is epic!

Good looking bike, btw. Except for that seat! But ride comfort trumps looks every time.

Foot pegs

Just something to consider - I am a ct90 guy (have 5) who takes some pretty long rides. The most uncomfortable thing I find after a while in the saddle is the foot peg position. For an adventure like yours I would consider adding some alternate foot pegs (maybe off the brush guard) so you can uncramp your legs.

Good luck. This looks like huge fun.

Phil

They are not allowed on the roads in Virginia, but in West Virginia they allow them unregistered, unplated and uninsured on secondary roads with no deviding line down the middle. Does anyone know if this is possible. I think it would be a blast to take my wife on the TAT on a side by side. No way I am doing two up on a KLR.
Side by sides are NOT legal on any roads in Oklahoma, a few towns have ordinances where they don't bother you but for the most part it will get you a ticket. I have ridden the eastern portion of the TAT from telco plains to Buffalo, OK where I live (the trail runs about 2 miles north of my house in Buffalo). I ride with a local LEO and he said no go on the utv's.

By the way Cycles East guys when you get to Buffalo hit the shamrock station on the south end of town not the Loves station, The Shamrock is owned by my buddy Steve that I rode the TAT with and is very ADV friendly, we will do whatever we can to help you guys, not to mention I can't wait to see those sweet ass bikes........

I stopped in Buffalo, OK for lunch on my TAT ride. I think it was at the service station with the Subway (it may have even been the Love's Station - apologies). I'll never forget being there. As I was eating lunch and enjoying the puffy clouds, a local walked by, glance at me and my (ex)DR350SE, looked up at the clouds, turned back to me and said; "looks like rain...". He then walked into the store. I was a little stunned because it certainly didn't look like rain to me. But, I figured a local would know better than me. I quickly finished my lunch and was on my way. Guess what? It never rained.

Just returned from a ride in Moab and Gizmo had something like that. On his Crash bar he had mounted 2 like half peices of plexiglass pipe on the top, crusing to rides on the highway he'd put his legs up there and his calfs fit right into them, sort of lazy boy style, looked comfy when crusing.

He said that because in oklahoma we have a saying. "if you don't like the weather, wait 10 min."

I know that saying well, we have a tendency to mumble here in Chicago, too. Usually with an expletive attached......
