There is a series where a father and two sons took a pair of crf250s and African twin on the tat. Very obvious which bike is better for this job
Dance as if no one is watching.
I was just watching a couple of other guys on the TAT and they lucked out the plains were mostly dry so they didn't get into mud/clay soup. But they did get into some bad sand on those GSA's and decided the smell of burning clutches was enough to turn back and try to bypass that section. Last video was just posted a few days ago, but did the ride last year. Last video posted they were in CO so they haven't gotten into Utah and some of the rougher stuff yet.
