Riding the UPAT while dodging snowflakes

I have just returned from a fantastic ride, following the "Big Bike Route" of the UPAT as detailed by Cannonshot here:

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=627424

Had some trouble with the weather, including ice, sleet and snow. Luckily the ground was warm enough to prevent any build up. Most days were between 40 and 50 degrees F. Most trails and dirt roads, especially those in the north were very, very wet.

My gear:
2015 F700GS with the following:
Lower crash bars
Upper Crash Bars
Skid Plate

Continental TKC 80 set at 27 psi front / 30 psi rear for the entire ride (1000 miles+)

Pelican 1450 for tools permanently mounted to rear rack
Several Sea to Summit dry bags and dry duffle for camping supplies, clothes, etc.

iPhone 6 with MotionX GPS software, preloaded maps (all detail levels of the entire UP) and loaded with the GPS Route from Cannonshot. Iphone was in the clear section of a tank bag. I will never take a tank bag again, as it impeded me from standing up in the pegs (I could not shift body weight forward as needed).

Uploading a few raw videos to the album. Will take some time. Will post again when uploaded. These are *not* edited. Best turn the sound off and please ignore the jittery video. Camera was mounted to upper crash bar (I did not have a helmet mount ready when I left).

Seems I may have to store my photos somewhere else.

I updated the album links to include a photobucket drop as well.

Videos are only on Google though.
