    A guys gotta love a true blue riding partner that will follow or lead you into hell and back. Thats what I've found in my riding partner IBMIKE over the past 6 years.

    Fast forward to fall of 07. I managed to buy a 02 GS with 3800 miles on it. Yup,no typo...3800 miles and she's a peach! Im a happy camper dood !
    IBMIKE buys a 04 GSA loaded to the tits and says i'll meet you in Klamath Falls Orygun and we will test these mammoths out in some dirt and see how we fair.
    OK, dood, see you there.

    WTF-OVER does one of these...

    Tag, I'm it! So we roll out of the rack after listening to Tim rattle the damn walls all night and head off for our "official" first day.

    We stopped by Dry Falls WA, which is a very cool spot if you are ever close!

    Then it was off to Williams Lake, BC and our first twilight zone experience!

    (for you impatient FFs, here is the link to my SmugMug Gallery, where all my 1500+ pics from the trip are: IB Mike's Alaska TBT '08 Gallery

    Would love to post more than a teaser... but it is midnight here... gotta hit the rack...

    ...I (Eric) finally found a way to pack all the crap onto the Caponord I intended to take. After several hours of trying different combinations of duffel bags and where to put the TKC 's etc. I came up with a workable solution. Workable that is until I needed to get at something inside a pannier or the duffel.

    I had more time off the Mike, Tim and Mikey so I planned on splitting off on the way back from Prudhoe at Fairbanks and head to Denali for some backpacking. Besides the typical m/c trip stuff I had heavy hiking boots, a 90 liter pack and all the stuff needed for over a week in the backcountry of Denali NP. At about 160lbs, it was essentially the same as having a slightly chubby pillion.

    When I left Seattle at 05:30 hrs the next morning it was cold, gray and drizzly - imagine that. It stayed that way until I hit BC, where it was colder and really raining until well past Hope. Once up over the hump, it was warm and arid, very similar to eastern Washington, minus the WA. State Patrol.

    I arrived in Williams lake several hours before the rest of the lads so I bought some junk food and headed for the park. Shortly thereafter a LEO or two showed up and started exchanging pleasantries with any and all the First Nation folks also enjoying the park that afternoon. One of these folks, a man who introduced himself as Eddie, was very interested in my trip to Alaska. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a small, rounded black stone. He presented me the spirit rock to help me on my journey. I thought maybe he was going to ask me to give him something to help him on his journey, like maybe a sawbuck or at least a fin, but no such request materialized. I appreciated the gesture and carried the little black rock in my pocket the rest of the trip. Now it sits on my desk. Go ahead, call me superstitious.

    I just checked out IBM's Smug Mug Gallery. Some brilliant pics. Looking forward to my ride up that way next summer. Thanks for the pics and report guys, I'm envious.

    Your story had me convinced! I was glad to see the rock watching over us in the motel room at night! :ear

    So we finally all arrived at the Jamboree Motel in Williams Lake

    [​IMG]

    This was one odd place... as we were downloading what we needed from the bikes, these dirty trucks pulled up and all these crazy hippy-freak looking young folks poured out of them, obviously having put in a very hard days work somewhere... they were a motley crew, including one fella who had these strange triangle like tattoos on his face & neck. Turns out there were all working in forestry planting trees... nice enough... but very strange!

    The motel was a shit-hole... weather beaten, hand rails falling off the stairs, creaky/stained floors...

    We survived the nastiness and didn't get kidnapped by the crazy tree-hugger cult, and in the morning it was time to pack up and head north!

    And then, as the sun was rising, we were off, with me being the lead FF!
