I am gearing up for the T.W.A.T. (Trans WI Adventure Trail) ride leaving on Thursday, with Craig & Harrison.  For those not familiar with the t.w.a.t,  it is a route from the southwestern border of WI to the very tip of northern WI, all off-road (at least most of it).  As usual everything comes down to the last minute.  I have to swap the 17″ street tires out for the 18″/21″ dual sport tires on my KTM 690 Enduro R and get everything packed up and ready to go.  No camping equipment since we decided it would just be easier to stay at cheap motels.  Craig has a nice route planned out on the GPS and we’ll have some pretty full days of riding.   Day 1 – 370, day2 – 250, day 3 – 250 and day 4 – 325!  Keep in mind that about 85% of this will be off-road/gravel roads.  1,200 miles off-road, 4 days.  No stopping to smell the flowers.  We’re calling it the Off-Road Iron Butt. 

Stay tuned here and after the ride I’ll post up some pictures and a ride report.
