    Ah yes, good memories.

    July 29, 2004 - The 22 year old Suzuki on her way from Key West to Deadhorse -

    February 15, 2006 - Not my bike, but I was the one who rode it (For about 3 miles. :lol3 The stock tires were sliding all over the place and I was afraid I'd get run over by one of the trucks. :eek1) -

    April 1, 2007 - With a studded Gripster on the front, and a Michelin X-Ice car tire on the back, the Wing had no trouble negotiating the ice and snowpack we encountered north of the Yukon River -

    July 4, 2008 - The KLR was found to be much better suited to the Haul Road than either the Suzuki or the GL1800 :nod -

    June 30, 2010 - A ride up to Deadhorse with Dean Tanji to get some more photos -

    Most of my trips with other riders, my bike stays out of the way to make room for the rest, as in this one -

    Disclaimer: This isn't me, and it isn't my bike, either. But here you see ADV'er Wheeldog (obviously tougher than me) standing next to his KLR at the Arctic Circle on February 15th, 2006. Since Wheeldog has made it to Nome in the Iditarod Sled Dog race a couple of times, I guess a little cool weather is nothing to be concerned about. :lol3

    The Circle in Norway, mid-June.

    Went on up to North Cape at 71+ degrees north.

    It was an easy cruise, especially in comparison to two German guys on old Vespas. They had been to the Cape and then east into Russia before heading back to Germany.

    Myself and a couple of riding buddies at the circle summer '09. My steed is the '08 KLR (soon to be replaced with a new one) and I'm one in the middle.
