Intro: About a year ago my buddy Dean sent me a pic of his new WR250R. I thought to myself, "He bought a 250, what a dumbass". Then I rode it and liked it. I did some research and saw these 2 dudes that went all the way to Deadhorse Alaska on them. Ok maybe Dean's on to something so I bought one too. Maybe someday I'll ride it to Alaska. Someday came sooner that expected. Thanks to all folks like BigDog, Dingweeds and ruffntuff who inspired me to make this trip and to make a ride report. And thanks to my buddy Dean(Sidehil) for joining in at the last minute. He got all his gear and his bike prepped and ready in about 3 months. He was in and out up until the last few weeks but He was determined that I was not going without him. I assured him that I would go with or without him. 6205 miles in 20 days on 250's. Stay tuned.
