You should work out your MPG accurately. I know myself in a Vstrom 650 and with a GS1150 both had large 22lt tanks and we both took a US gallon container and used it, we may have got away without it but prudence won.

Good luck and have fun

FYI a few years ago the Iron Butt rally ran some bikes up there and they are road tourers, a few made it but the most common failure was due to the buildup of snot from the road on the tyres/mudguards causing wheel stoppage and the blockage of the radiator due to the same snot

It will depend on road conditions but if I can do it anyone can

Will do, and I mean my bike can do about a good 130 miles to a full tank.

Like Marc mentioned, just plan for D2D 2013 as a warm up run I;m sure you will be able to find a riding partner for Deadhorse in the crowd. Going solo MIGHT not be the best choice.
I can bring extra gas jug , and yes ya are right about having skills, cause I know the first few miles intothe Dalton. It got me in check ad I was like ok ..100% focus .
And why not go solo? I guess I will meet with some of you adv rider ad ride next season. Everyone I ride with are city limit riders.
