Had a good time (if not slightly chilly and damp) riding and finally meeting (re-meeting) a few folks.

Looking forward to more of these. And thinking seriously about the Memorial Day ride down to Arkansas and back...

I am riding to Eureka Springs Arkansas the weekend before Memorial Day (if the weathers not good that weekend I will be going Memorial Day weekend).

I am planning on riding down to my dad's joint near Bennet Springs State Park, about 15 mintues east of Urbana, Missouri. I will spend the night at my mom's lake house near Trenton, Missouri for the night then ride the rest in the morning. I will be taking Highway 65 the whole way. Anyone can tag along if they would like...

Yeah, that was a great ride! About the best you can do in Central Iowa. Rain, Hail, water crossing (yeah just one, but I did it 4 times just to make sure). Great fun meeting ALL of you. :) There must be more rides. Lets get together soon and see how lost we can get.

Only a couple of pics...




Got 2 videos but discovered a very valuable lesson...I actually ended up with about 578927834 short videos but apparently, every time I braked hard 2 up, the camera hit the front fender right on the button and started/stopped recording over and over.

Forget the road less travelled. Someone has already been there. Give me the places where the road has not yet gone. There is where you will find the true adventure.

I wish you had been there too, I was all up for quizzing you on Alaska.
Hopefully we will have another get together soon, I have our plan printed out...ready to compare notes.

Can I ask what you are riding up there?
How many are going?
Camping?
Any dirt?
Deadhorse?

I'm going to add to the echo chamber, and say that it was pretty good to meet (some of) the local crazies. Hopefully it can become a 'thing'.

There is a total of 3 of us going, 2 Triumph Tiger 800's, and a Wee Strom.
We are planning on camping 16 out of 21 days, that will depend on mood, weather, etc,etc.
It looks like we will have 1200ish miles of dirt/gravel, if all goes according to plan.
Decided to go to Inuvik instead of Deadhorse, we will only have time for one of those and Inuvik won the vote.
I am anxious to get any input you may offer.

It sounds like you have a great plan, and the right bikes with the Tigers, The Wee guy needs to be on his toes off road.
Inuvik is the
ultimate goal of an adventure trip. That stands out as the biggest accomplishment of our trip to the north. When someone tells me they have been to Inuvik they are instantly awesome in my eyes.
No one gets to Inuvik by just going on a road trip, you earn every mile you ride on that road. Don’t let the first half fool you into thinking it’s easy though.
If you do come up with the time though try to make it to Deadhorse, Where else can you stand in the Arctic Ocean ,That is the farthest north you can ride in the world,[in the summer]
If you are camping in the wild, once on the Alaskan Highway, there are endless good places to camp with no one around.[but bears]
One of the most important things I can tell you is BE PREPARED , for cold, for rain, for cold, for rain, fixing flats , not getting much sleep, loosing weight from not eating, [that’s the part I liked, I need to go more often]
And enjoy every second of the ride, even the long way there, have fun, It is truly the trip of a life time, It goes by way to fast, I wish I could have recorded it and watch it again in slow motion .
Steve

Thanks for the input Steve.
Looking forward to sitting down and talking with you,
We will have to get together sometime in the near future.

I sense another group gathering.
