How does the bike get so dirty?
I understand the back and under but even the top of the windshield is covered in spray, were you riding behind someone? is it the trucks?

I plan on going there this July, check my blog, I just put a map up there, any suggestion as to what I should be seeing on the way up?

Thanks

Yep .. trucks kick up a lot of crap, especially if it's wet!!! :-) But give them respect, i.e. indicate to the right, slow down and give a wave and they will repay the gesture, we have nothing but praise for those guys, 99.9% of them slowed down for us, we could have been a lot dirtier!
July should be ok, a lot drier, but the skeeters might be worse, we were there in Sept. still had a lot of skeeters tho!
We left Fairbanks and overnighted at Coldfoot, free camping .. left the following morning and wild camped alongside the water 20K's out of Deadhorse. Not a great deal to see on the way up from Fairbanks apart from the pipeline, watch out for Moose, Caribou and Bears. Dead Horse itself is just a working oil refinery, the furthest point north you can actually ride is to the fuel station. You can take an overpriced tour to the shore of the Artic ocean if you want to dip your toes (may have to prebook), we didn't do it .. think it costs around US$40 pp. If you go into the post office, upstairs in the General Store you can add your pic to the post ladies gronk board .. we're on there!!!!
Do you have a link to your site?
Alaska is an amazing place, you're going to love it!

For the record, I was specifically asked to post that picture in this forum by Gadget Boy ... the super Administrator. Its only up there at all because its a world record and it clearly shows an ADV sticker. Its therefore supposed to be promoting the forum in general.

I will delete the post if it offends anyone.

It is a fine picture and it reflects true Adventure spirit. Absolutely no need to take such drastic measures, and... congrats on the achievement.

On a side note : you could start a "Mile High Club" on ADV !
