Glad you found us

I have read all your RR's and glad you stumbled upon our little thread... We wish we could do trips like this more often but as you know real life. Going away this weekend for a fall ride down to the Olympia Peninsula. 2 nights are better than none. Thanks for stopping by!

Our BLOGS name has changed so if anyone BMW owners out there as well as Triumph and all other makes the BLOG is now just about our travels with the bikes we own presently, BMW F650GS. Anyway, just an update that we are keeping all the Triumph stuff up and carrying on with ADV blogging, Just got back from about a 1000 KM loop around the Olympic Peninsula this weekend.

What model of power inverter did you use on your Alask trip. I seen where it did great, but I can't find the brand....Also, heater grips.....

BTW, you put together a great ride report. Looks like you Ladies had a blast.

The Inverter is a MotoMaster Eliminator and we did not have heated grips. Triumph could not get them installed in time. We just had aux lights. We did have a blast.

Go here and you can read our review of the bikes and some of the gear we used.

over and over!

This is about the 8th time that I've been back and started all over just to make sure that I haven't missed anything. It's a great RR and so very interesting. I wanna do something that extensive too and NOT from my rocking chair! Good job!

I'm sure you'd have a great time in our area since there's lots of variety to see. One thing for sure is don't wait too long or those rocking chairs are gonna be waiting! Good luck and thanks again.....stay safe!

I was reading your blog pretty consistent until I had to travel for work... great trip, amazing write up! Apologize if you already addressed this, but did Triumph sell you the bikes and did they ever get back to you with the stalling issue? I was curious if it got resolved post trip as I was considering getting a Tiger.

No deal on the Tigers could be worked out in the end. Not such a bad thing. We really do not need new bikes now but next year....we shall see.

10 days after we got back Triumph announced a world wide recall for the stalling issues and for the centre stand. A new tune for the bikes computer seems to have worked for the stalling and new springs for the centre stands also seem to be a successful fix. So, in the end all the owners of the stalling bikes should be much happier since that was addressed. Thanks for reading the RR and we are keeping the BLOG up which has tons of new stuff since our trip. Beemer related but also about other ADV rides, maintenance, DIY videos and past, present and future trips we take on whatever bikes we own.

Leslie - you make a great point that the most important objective is to get out there and twist the throttle, not the emblem on the gas tank.

Following that logic, the most important thing you can buy for your bike is gas - everything else is gravy...

Ride on...

Gary
