Great RR! You gotta love Canada in May it could be +30 or -15 on any given day. I'm heading up that way in a month and I thought that was cutting it too early. Nice job, keep up to good pics!

I ride a 990 and it takes like 6 co2's to just get air in the rear to limp out, can't seat it with that. My suggestion is get a stripped down electric pump and or c02/hand pump for backup. I tried the hand pump once it was then .

I have a slim pump now and I still carry my Mtn bike pump just in case.

When you make it to the northeast look me up for all your needs, ie: coffee, beer, pizza, bread, a place for your tent with a water view or a warm bed. Your choice

As long as I can drink some of your Brew!

We took a tour of the Yukon Brewing Co today. "beer worth freezing for". It was pretty fun. Especially the tasting!

Hey Noah, great RR and Pic's, just started reading your post a couple of days ago and finally caught up. let us know how the 690 is fairing up to your travels. I'm going to do part of the TAT in july and I'm not sure if I should take the 690 or the tiger 800 xc? Have a great and safe ride.

I think I can outrun this cold today and get into Alaska. Its sunny and I am getting the itch to move. 3 nights in the same spot will do that to a guy.

People have done it on both. Its a pretty long ride on a 690.. but that never scared me.
