Welcome to a “Minne” Adventure!

April 30, 2012

TMATThis site is dedicated to promoting Dual Sport and Adventure motorcycle riding in Minnesota. We are blessed with an abundance and diversity of natural resources that make Minnesota a prime location for long distance on and off-road touring. Here you will find information on the Trans-Minnesota Adventure Trail (TMAT) as news and articles.  The TMAT is over 1200 miles long and stretches across Minnesota.   Subscribe to the blog to keep up on trail updates and other Minnesota riding events. You can also become a member of our MEETUP group to get info on rides and events in Minnesota.

Sellers wanted for upcoming Swap Meet!

March 21, 2015

It is almost time for what could be our 3rd Annual MinneADV Swap Meet.  However, this year I’d like to make sure we have a good number of sellers committed to showing up.  I’d like to see at least 10 sign up. The proposed date is Saturday April 18th from 9AM to Noon and will again be held in St. Paul.  If you have Adventure Touring or Dual Sport gear, parts, or whole bikes please respond on our Google Group message board letting us know you are committed to showing up and selling.

This is a fun event and a chance to kick off the riding season with other riders.  Please respond ASAP so we can have another successful year!
