Yeep...did the same in Turcs and Caicos, and still managed to exit the odd parking lot to the road on the wrong side drawing some weird stares...from the locals...

That said, doubly funny up there (looks like you are on Corkscrew Pass?) where the left side is a fall to your death

Mostly small stuff that does not weigh a lot. Chain lube, rags, zip strips, and small tools. Works great.

No thank you, Delmar.

Pretty sure that was taken at the Yukon River on my way back down the Dalton.

The pic was taken by a German fella called Erik Peters, not sure if Erik has a presence on here, he was travelling nine months from Mexico to Prudhoe Bay and further on to New York City. Erik is currently writing his journey up for a German Adventure magazine and I thank him for hunting me down and sending me the picture. Top bloke! A big thumbs up.

I was absolutely shagged at this stage, I had done the Dalton in atrocious conditions, it pissed down rain most of the time and by this stage I needed sleep and a beer, not necessarily in that order...
Going over the Dawson Ranges was a nightmare, I was in thick cloud and couldn't see 30 feet and just followed the guard rail up and over wobbling my way through 3 or 4 inches of pure slop at 15 mph.

Just occasionally there is a totally brilliant picture posted in this thread. This one is fantastic.

Love the pic posted by Etronx a couple of pages back also.

Both these capture something of what "Adventure Rider" means to me.

I bet not.
70km after my trip I still get the smell of that calcium chloride crap on a hot day when stopped.



And that picture speaks volumes.
