The KAT -Part Deux AND Hatfield McCoy Buffalo Mountain 7/18 to 7/26/2020

Post by Skinny-J » Tue Jan 28, 2020 7:47 am

First off this is not a thread about Trials bikes. Any mention of those gay fukin things in this topic and we might as well change the name of this forum to something besides Dual-Sporters and Adventurers (I have some suggestions). If you don’t like my bad attitude, stay out of this thread, there is no need for you to comment. If you like riding real motorcycles, read on….

A couple of year’s ago something like ten of us did the KAT in the counterclockwise direction. It was a great trip. Here is a link to that trip:The KAT

We staged out of Matewan and it killed me to be right at the foot of Buffalo Mountain with only a big 650. This time we are going to bring all the appropriate weapons and do it all!
Tentative Itinerary:
Sat 7/18 – drive to Matewan
Sun 7/19 - Get out your dirt bike of choice – ride Buffalo Mountain.
Mon 7/20 – more punishing dirt biking riding of the HM trails.
Tues 7/21 to Sat 7/25 – exchange dirt bike for dual-sport bike and off on a 5 day loop of the Kentucky Adventure Trail. Clockwise this time; it will look totally different the opposite direction (not that I would remember much of it from before anyway).
Sun 7/26 – drive home. Exhausted and with lots of good stories.

You are welcome to join in for any parts of this trip that tickle your fancy. Come for just the dirt biking, come for just the dual-sporting or come for just the drinking and eating. Everyone is welcome regardless of skill level, experience or even if you own a trials bike.

Put these dates on your calendar now; tell the wife we will celebrate whatever anniversary/birthday/Hallmark holiday before or after you leave\get back. Carpe diem the ride boyz!

Sounds like a great time....just outside my abilities any longer.
Perhaps post more than one ride a year and the dual sport part of the forum will take over as it should :shrug:
I enjoy reading a following along on your adventures...please continue to share your gift of cat herding.

I think I can swing at least part of this trip. How would the 1090 fare on the DS portion?
