The TAT is the Trans America Trail that aims to go off road from one side of the states to the other.

The TET is the European equivalent and is split into routes for multiple countries.

The Himalayan looks like quite a good fit but I just wondered if anyone has actually done it?

From the gentle sound of crickets, I'd say that's probably a "Nope."

Those in the States considering easing their Himis or what have you into that whole Napping with Sasquatch  adventuresome thing in a little less "epic" fashion than, say, jumping bail and committing to the full Transcontinental Iron Butt 5000, might do well to check out those Butler Motorcycle Maps I had described earlier in these Forums, when this new and improved model of Himalayan was first coming out. Paved or unpaved, Butler's got lots of states and regions covered. You could be winching your Himi out of some muck in no time!

I guess you're right. The Himalayan does seem like an ideal bike for the trip though. I quite like the idea of the Euro version as it's split into sections which makes it more doable. Obviously I just need a Himalayan, enough free time, permission from the wife and the kids to finally leave home then I'll be all over this.
