Always travel in pairs.
I want to do the TAT one day, but this video is the perfect example of why it - or any rough off-road riding - needs to be done with a buddy.
Stumbled across that video a couple of years ago and did not know what to expect. At that 'oh shit' moment, as if I was riding that bike, I actually yelled out, "OH SHIT". That nightmarish moment needs to be given some thought and reckoned with. Having an adventure partner will certainly offer a whole range of valuable options should something go awry. Unfortunately finding a adventure partner when you want to go on an adventure is not always going to happen. Common sense and preparation is your best partner. All my standout adventure memories were done solo. Silly, perhaps, but for me, it seemed the only option....
Take care my Friend.........
There is an attraction to "just me and my bike" riding. I do it all the time, just not the safest for sure!

his riding buddy wasn't much help when he was too far back to see. he rode right past him. a head set would have helped, then he would have heard his buddy scream as he went over

Yeah, I kept asking myself, where's the other dude? I'm sure he was asking himself the same thing.
Glad to see him raise his head back up after he laid down. I thought he was done. He prolly felt that way.
What kind of nav thingie was that on the handlebars?
