So I rode the part of the TAT between Fayetteville and West Point this weekend with a buddy.
I was on a 2016 1200GS, and he was on a 2017 GSA.
We think we did all the offroad sections, but there were a couple of times we noticed the GPS had routed us off the tracks my buddy downloaded, so we may have missed some.
There were three water crossings. Two were actual creek water crossings, one was like a concrete bridge with about a foot, foot and a half of water over it.
The creek crossings were my first real water crossings. The second one was fairly deep, at least deep enough to have water go into the top of my boots.
Made it across all ok without going for a swim. This was not due to my skill, of which I have little offroad. I credit some really good electronics in Enduro mode on the GS. Just pointed it toward the other shore, stayed in the throttle, and tried to let the front wheel do its thing.
I don't know what the section remaining section to Corinth is like. May be harder. The offroad portions were not bad for us novices. The road portions were really great. Lots of curvy, hilly back roads with almost no traffic. Gorgeous scenery.
I will say, if it were muddier, or those creeks were higher, we may have been in trouble. Neither of us were running 50/50 tires. I have Pirelli Scorpion Trail IIs, and he had Anakee IIIs. Basically road tires.
Anyone else know what the remaining section to Corinth is like?
