Across America in 60 Seconds - TAT on a GS1200

Attachment 335770

While planning for my trip on the Trans America Trail, there were two things that pretty much everyone told me to avoid: doing the trip by myself and doing the trip on a big bike. Well, guess what? I did both, including all the mountain passes in Colorado and a side trip on the White Rim Trail!

4,763 miles, 17 days, 16 states, 3 falls, 2 GoPros and 1 BMW R1200GS motorcycle. From Liberty Park, NJ to the Santa Monica Pier, CA riding mostly off-road across America on the Trans-America Trail. A trip of a lifetime.

Over the next couple of weeks, I will post my report including pictures. In the meantime this video will give you a taste of how much fun I had.
