The Trans-America Trail is a west bound ride across America. The Trail starts in Southeastern Tennessee, and ends at the Pacific Ocean in southwestern Oregon. Some 4,800 miles of mostly off-pavement riding. This trail was the mastermind of Sam Correro, who for years pursued his goal of charting a coast-to-coast, off-pavement motorcycle adventure. He studied countless maps and surveyed thousands of miles to create one great trip. This Trail is not a single-track tight woods ride. It is a route using dirt roads, gravel roads, jeep roads, forest roads and farm roads. Dropping down into dried-up creek beds, and riding atop abandoned railroad grades. There are sections of mud, sand, snow and rocks. It's all of the above, but it's for the Dual-Sport Rider. Check out their website by clicking on the following Trans-America Trail
