I just ordered a can of ACF-50. Looking forward to giving it a try. Thanks for the tip.
T 2- Applied Motion might be referring to your post 1072.
I'm gonna have to go back to school so I can try to figure this out
Trying to join in on the humour. Your picture of your tire in the stand could be mistaken for being still be mounted in the forks.
Haha now I get the humor...you have to bear with me as I'm a bit dense on the brain department
Wow, the moment of truth has arrived.
I am looking forward to your departure. And following you and the circus to Alaska.
Gets me all excited even a year before I do my trip.
I sure have learned a lot from your threads.

Thank you sir. All I have to do is pick the Princess and Gary up at the airport Tuesday night, go for a short ride Wednesday so I can get the bikes adjusted for them, load them in the trailers, and head out to Montana Thursday morning. Anthony's already here and has his AT packed and ready. Then ride from there. Getting close and real now...

Good luck on your trip! I've had my F700 for 3 years, and love it. Just got back from a short solo tour (a little under 3,000 miles) of Northern California, Nevada (including the extraterrestrial highway), Utah (I can tell you first hand that Anakee IIIs don't work well in the sand in Moab), and Colorado. I think you'll find the bikes to be great for your trip. With your upgraded saddles, it may not be a big deal, but if you find your knees hurt, you might add cheap pegs to the little holes in your SW Motech crash bars. I got cheapies off ebay, and found that they were a good relief.
Great you're liking the 700. I think it's just about perfect for me. Thanks for the tip about the pegs. We can always stop by a bike shop along the way and pick up some if need be.
Luckily there's not much sand in Alaska....only mud
Umm, about Anakees and mud ...
yep, we figure if folks can ride the mud on Harleys, Gold Wings, and scooters we should be able to "muddle" through ok...plus three of us are clowns so we have to put on a good show
BTW Taff is running Mitas E0-7s on his AT....he's gonna take a tow rope....he may be smarter than his last four girlfriends think he is.
I'll be following you, in about a month.........it's getting real up in here!
Please excuse the hijack. I saw Bill, owner of the RT heading south, just before Atigun Pass, and he was heading back from Deadhorse. Check out his Anakes:
Tim, I'm leaving High Point on June 11 and heading to Alaska. Have a great/safe trip.
It was fresh on my mind that day since I rode my bicycle into work and had a flat. Good luck on your adventure. I won't be following your start since I will be on my own adventure to Isle Royale (non-motorcycle) but I will when I get back. I have been following you for awhile and enjoy your adventures
Anthony got to the house yesterday. We spent today getting his new Woody's rear wheel mounted on the Africa Twin along with a set of Mitas E0-7's. The wheel is a work of art. Instead of having his stock hub re-laced and sealed for tubless...Anthony opted for a complete super wheel ($1350) with a custom billet cush drive hub, stainless super spokes... the best Excel rim available...and sealed so he can use a tubeless tire on the rear
When Anthony got to the house the other day there was a big wooden box in the back of his truck. I asked what it was and he said "go around to the other side and you can see what's in the box". Well...around I went and low and behold it was a brand new bike lift.
Anthony said "Happy Birthday from the Kaye, Gray, and me". How cool is that! I turn 65 the day we leave and this was the BEST present ever. Just what I needed for the shop.
It's great having such good friends
Awesome present. I too will spend my summer following your traveling circus here on ADV. Cannot wait!
Thanks! Welcome to the Circus
