Nice ride! Is the windshield very helpful?
I've been quite happy with how it moves the cool air from my chest and torso a bit higher. It keeps the rain and snow at bay. The ruckus is shorter than most bikes but I've used this on a TW once as well.
Good to meet you while you were in Fairbanks at the Coffee house.
Thanks! You too. I have so many fond memories from my visit in AK and will be absolutely sure to return for a much longer stay
A couple pics:
Down in the PCNW now riding through Washington and really taking my time. Amazing rain forests and hiking opportunities abound all over the mountains and coast.
I was just up in AK last week (on a cruise) and stopped at Ketchikan and visited a local store that sold the rukus where Jeanne had rented a HD last time we were there. Mentioned your ride and they said they had heard of your adventure. Young guy working there thought it was way kool.
I ran into mike at Big Bend NP in texas, had seen him around the park but I was out running and saw him so I had to say hi
He is still out there rocking it!
Great meeting you! Keep up the good work out there :) I'm usually wearing full gear but was just scooting a few miles up to the store for a candy bar and some evening wifi. Hope you are staying warm and dry down there!
Keep on Keepin' on, Mike! :)
He also made the cover of aerostich's catalog!
When I was in McCarthy last summer, a local told me that someone tried to drive a bulldozer over that bridge. 1/2 way across, the bridge broke. He hit it balls out and made it back to land.
Now that guy had cajones!
Wow, guess I've been gone a while since this is the first time I've seen the thread.
Mike, the group I was in ran into you up in Glenallen. I, too, was envious of the adventure you were on. Still have the pics on my phone of your Ruckus parked next to my KLR!
It was nice meeting you. I recall just needing a cup of coffee to warm my fingers up and heat me before the non-stop run to Fairbanks for a salmon bake. Still rocking the Ruck and easing my way down the road at roughly 30k mi now. Maybe I'll double that mileage before the journey is "over"? Maybe more
It's not the size of the bike under the rider that determines the Adventure.
Thanks for taking the time to share your adventure with us.
We ran into Mike this morning at the gas station at the south end of the Cassiar. My wife and I pulled in to the pump on our Wings and Mike was sitting at the next pump. I said hey didn't I meet you in Teslin three years ago, he just smiled and said yes. He is on another adventure. He was heading up the Cassiar, then heading for Inuvik, you might see him at D2D.
Still Ruck'n. Great to run into you and have a great trip. 56000 miles and counting on La Tortuga. I'm planning to be at D2D now...
Good morning Mike! Great to chat with you yday in Dawson. I like the food bucket!
See you in town today.
( I have the pink hair!)
and i thought and marche and his c90 were mad
Really enjoyed watching him compete with the Ruckus against the bigger bikes at D2D...
