If they're Sidis, then probably dry socks

No surprises on the Dalton, It's a fairly easy road. It almost snowed on us on top of Atigun Pass at midnight, That would have been fun though. We didn't even find it that slick when wet. It is a MUST DO ROAD though. I would do it again some day.
On the trip ? We lost a friend on the North Dempster to a crash. Starting at the N.W.T. that road is tough!!!! I wouldn't have missed it for anything though.

Actually when we got to Inuvik, N.W.T. it was the warmest of the whole trip. [24 hour sun]

Curious how you managed rubber - how did the wear rates go and any flats? Assume the jerry can sufficed for extra fuel.

I expect to have similar shots of my 990A this July on the way to Deadhorse... riding up from the Denver area with my regular riding buddy and his new Super Tenere.

I put on my new Mefo once we got on the Alaskan Highway, Then it lasted the rest of the trip. No flats, The 2011 R gets great gas milage. On one stretch I went 300 miles using that extra fuel.

Thanks much - might try a Mefo when the current TKC80 is toast. Happy trails.
