Yeppers...need to print the pdf, fill out and fax or scan. Welcome! You are going to have one of the most memorable vacations ever. Ordering my ICO tomorrow I think. May as well learn how to use the thing

Getting the willies reading abuot this ride!
I wanted to run it, back in the 90's, in my Subaru.
Of course, ski passes and chicks got my entry fees and I never gave it a second thought.

Now, my 2014 riding schedule is still in planning stages and the Alcan beckons again...

Welp...they give us the cinder roads big time. In 2006, Ned and Jimmy650 rode the South Canol like a cushion Mile.

I saw it!

from behind for a little bit...

Is this shindig doable on a Tigger 800XC, with suitable tires of course, ridden by a (very) average dirt rider ? I don't think my XR will be up for the job and I really don't want to buy another bike but nor do I have any pretensions of winning either. I also like the idea of being able to power my heated gear.

Finishing is all I am looking for here...

Hey Bob!! Thanks for the heads up!

After the 2006 version, I spent the rest of 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, & half of 2010 thinking about the 2010. The same thing is going on right now.

I think the Triumph would work great.

Your Tigger is ideal. IMO. You can run a Mefo rear and a TKC up front. Maybe take a spare front too. Rainier will haul our spares and panniers.

You don't need exceptional riding skills to do well. Its the navigation and time keeping that gets you results. I did seat-of-pants before, but this time I'm going to use an ICO computer.

For me the ride was the most important thing, with the competition aspect spicing it up. After two earlier events, this time I'd like to be more competitive.

Send in your deposit!

I don't know. Sorta toying w/ the idea of building a Triumph Scrambler hack, but that would mean I'd have to sell the GS outfit.

I've got a MTS, but I'd hate to fall down on that thing. Too pretty.

You gonna ride one of those plain old KTM things again?

Win, lose, or draw, it's great to ride w/ the same bunch of folks every day. You don't have the kind of hassles that you have on a less organized trip. W/ set time schedules, there's no waiting for someone to comb their hair or rearrange their gear for the 20th time. After finishing a TSD section, it's time to put on some miles!

Well...I have a new 690R , but my Yamaha WR250R is in AZ already and it has a big tank. I think I'm going to ride that. Jerry and a couple of his guys gave me a little flack about that, but I know it'll keep up on the transits. I guess the DRZ's struggled back in 2004, but my little 250 is faster than a DRZ. I can cruise it high sixties all day.

How could you sell that beautiful GS rig?

2014 is a long way off, but I'm enlisting some of my riding partners for tentative entry...

I'll figure out something. If I fall off of the Ducati before then and get it all scratched up, I just might ride it. Fast enough for the transit sections to be sure.

I'll wait for you.
