Good on you Tim. Now back to the pampering!
Haha...Tim, yeah it was probably the "accessories" that worried her. Glad she is doing better.
A friend of mine made the trip to Prudhoe Bay this summer. Took him 37 days, 10K miles, and $7K, roughly. His only gripe about going through Canada was not being able to bring a sidearm. And lack of cell phone coverage.
I'm not sure what a cabin costs on the ferry, but you can pitch a tent on deck. The downside to that is that you can't peg the tent down. The Milepost, a very informative publication is very helpful for making the trip to AK. Dr. Greg Frazier has also written a very good book about his travels up north. Riding to Alaska is the name of his book.
Steve, my buddy who went this past summer, rode a 1200GSA up there. He mounted Heidenau K60's on the bike. Ran the front one for the entire trip. Had a rear drop shipped to a shop in Anchorage and had it mounted when he got there. Seems like the largest expense per item/service was for lodging. He did camp some but bears kept him just a bit leery about camping very much.
And Cycle World currently has an article about a fella riding a Vespa scooter from FL to AK. That is an adventure for sure!
Cliff notes please..cautious of anything Joe post that requires FAP
I have looked at the ferry a couple times. With a suv and a trailer 4 kids and the wife and i it was over $3500.
Alaska Ferry... cabin or deck?
Last summer there was a nice article in one of the dual sport rags about a guy who rode thee ferry with his 11 yro boy. The slept on the deck and then rented cabins, in AK. If I find the article, I'll link it.
All the more reason to stay here!
I picked up a 2009 WR250X(shod with knobbies ), last night, from Dogjaw. Him and his boy Zach had picked it up a few months back but prefer their DR650's. I'll post some pics once the weather clears. I have a very good feeling about this bike...
It's a wonderful article on the benefits of hi-Viz jackets Doc.
Okay! I am IN!
Couldn't you just cover her leg to above the knee with a plastic garbage bag and clean her with the garden hose on the driveway? Sounds simple to me, but what do I know, I have only been married three times.
saw some gear I need..Off to Ebay..THANKS JOE!
The 250 Hunt...
Rocky is finally getting a settlement check.
He wants another bike.
He thinks he wants a 250.
Only thing we can find is an 09 with 1k miles for $2750.
I'm thinking there has to be something cheaper to be found.
Maybe DR350, or something.
He is thinking about a trip this summer when he graduates.
So the hunt is on, anyone else know of a bike from a friend of a friend etc?
How about this Terry? http://fayar.craigslist.org/mcy/3539606354.html
I missed the part it has to be street legal.
Plus I'm personally not a Honda fan...
I can remember one year before I graduated high school. I hitched to Eureka, Montana...got a cheap room and board situation and started work at St Regis Paper in Fernie, BC risking life and limb topping trees for the princely sum of $3.83 an hour. Minimum wage was what...a buck and change then...??!! The guard at the Roosville gate would barely look up from his morning tea to wave as I blasted past on my brand new '74 green Yamaha DT 360...! Different days...different world!
Thanks... I guess the air box will be the first mod, mirrors, hand guards, skid plate, tail rack, ....
