About

Welcome! This site is a continuation of what I started when I blogged my 2010 Trans-America Trail ride. I found I enjoyed logging the details of my ride and having a centralized location for photos and videos. And since I already have the cameras and other equipment I might as well continue to put it all to use.

About Me:


I am a 41 year old science teacher living near Pittsburgh, Pa with my wife, two dogs, a cat and some ocean critters. I currently teach high school chemistry, biochemistry, and environmental biology. I enjoy learning about and using technology in both my professional and personal life. I've grown up riding dirt bikes, but just got into dual-sporting in 2009.

About the site:
I plan to share more ride reports, photos, video, and maybe some product reviews. This site will be a vehicle for me to document and share my progression in dual-sport and off-road motorcycling. Please feel free to leave comments on any posts or email me at tavis @ motoadventure.me. I'd love to hear from others interested in dual-sporting. I'm also always very interested in finding some new locations to explore. If you're in the Pittsburgh region check out steelcitydualsport.com.

Enjoy the ride!

  1. Thanks for the posts great videos and photos and ride references, Idaho looks terrific. I'm planning to do a week of TN section of Trans-America Trail and a week of Michigan Cycle Conservation Club Trail MCCCT - southern end as my first year of dual sport adventures.

  3. So many questions...

    1. What does RCR stand for?
    I think I met some guys from Ohio that kept ranting about RCR they were all duel sport riders. (I met them in the NC mountains)

    2. I like the Trans West Virginia Trail, but Im having a hard time locating info on it. Is there a site for roll charts etc or is it something you just made up?

    3. Any suggestions for starting a duel sport club? We have a handful of riders down in South East NC and we are all starting to ride together consistently. We are planning a trip to Uwharrie National Forest. But my brother and I are always looking for extended trips. Riding the WHOLE way no trailoring.

      There is a thread on advrider.com. If you send a message to the thread author he can email you gps files for the routes. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?p=7879332#post7879332

      Sounds like a great idea. We have a message board that we use to communicate and set up rides. The web site is pretty entertaining when we aren't riding too.
