    Alaska Ferry... cabin or deck?

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=463849

    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.

    I picked up a 2009 WR250X(shod with knobbies :evil), 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...:D

    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. :rofl

    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?

    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!
