I depart July 2nd to begin a month long trip. Starting in MN, through Canada, into Alaska, onto the Dempster. South to Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Bonneville Salt Flats, Grand Canyon, Continental Divide, Rushmore, Black Hills, Badlands and then home. As planned, the mileage is ~11k miles. The route: Here's a link to my daily stops and notes: http://goo.gl/jKJpA The bike: 2013 BMW F700GS; comfort and safety package SW Motech crash bars MOD Bashplate SW Motech pannier rack TRAX panniers MOD tail rack Rotopax 2gal aux MRA adjustable windscreen Throttle lock Barkbusters Touratech headlight guard Touratech 20mm bar risers Touratech GPS mount Garmin 660 Giant Loop Fandango, modified for accessory power Alaska Leather sheepskin butt pad Pazzo adjustable clutch and brake levers Wunderlich clutch arm Wunderlich brake pedal enlarger MOD side stand (assuming it gets here in time) The gear: Packing list, may be helpful for other folks who are prepping for a trip: http://goo.gl/X5IeY I've since decided to ditch the MacBook Pro in favor of an iPad and bluetooth keyboard I'm doing 75% solo. But a fellow ADV'er, AspentureRider, is meeting me in Anchorage and then riding the Denali, Top of the World, Dempster and then south with me. So I'll be riding with someone else during some of the more harry times. If you have any last minute recommendations, I'll gladly take them. But please don't tell me "you're doing it all wrong!" I don't need the panic attack at the last minute.
