VXA, Ready for Alaska
Alaska, here we come, we're ready, the bikes are ready, and the count down has begun, June 3rd, 181 days until departures. The VXA passed a couple of rigorous test last summer, a few days up in the Hells Canyon area, 550 mile trip, about 200 miles on Forest Service roads, some of which would be a good test for any off highway bike, blue-out one rear shock, of which I was glad for, better now than on the North Slope. Another 500 mile trip to central Idaho on a fishing trip, all highway, but loaded similar to what it will be going to Alaska. Made a few more minor additions to the bike which I'll put up some pics of as soon as I figure out how to do it again. Drunk Uncle, look out, here we come. Also send me your address so I can put it my GPS. More pics coming soon.
Though with each passing day I grow older, I REFUSE to grow up!
