    In case you might be interested, want to make sure you know about the Dust2Dawson Gathering in Dawson City Yukon Thurs/Fri June 21-22 with a couple hundred other ADVers.

    Since you're camping, http://www.thompsonseaglesclaw.com is a great mc campground in Tok where about 50 of us will spend Wed night on our way to D2D and about 30 Sat night after. University of Alaska Fairbanks is a good economical place to stay. U of AK Anchorage also has rooms if you make it into Southcentral AK. Or you can camp for free at our Anchorage House of Harley which even includes a code access shower room.

    Good luck and have fun, Mark H.

    We would have been ecstatic to make it to that but we would be at 1000 miles a day to make it in time.

    I wish my deck was that big. Maybe I should get it enlarged.:D

    I like yer bachelor party idea...my bachelor party was a cross-country trip from FL to CA with a couple riding buddies, we towed the bikes, stopped in Durango and rode around the Four Corners area enroute. Lotsa happy memories from that trip!

    Can you put Jack Daniels in water cans? Asking for a distant friend. [​IMG]

    You can put Jack Black in anything. After a few shots you won't even notice a metallic taste. That goes for plastic Coke bottles too. Except in third world

    Wow, your deck is huge. I've never even been on one that size. Your fiance is one lucky gal. How'd she manage waiting 5 years to experience your deck?

    Someday you'll get tired of the neighbor's wife checking out your deck...when that happens, if you let the bushes grow up around your deck a bit, it'll help make your deck look a little smaller and less appealing.

    Baller ride Nick, ride safeish, and have a blast!

    They treat it likes it is just a piece of wood. It is more than that.

    Nick...I have a place to make first stop in Michigan about 350-400 miles from Indy.
    Its in the thumb near port huron which takes you east a bit but nice riding along Lake Huron. Gonna step up and volunteer a first FREE stop for you. Camp if you want or I have an extra house with hot water luxury.
    Also 60 acres of riding trails there.
    Just drove it today. 6am leave. 2pm arrive.

    June 16 Day 1:
    Riding through Indiana doesn't offer much excitement. Made it in and setup before the rain. Hit a slight sprinkle but had lucked out so far. The clouds kept the temp low but it was sure to warm up once we started setting up camp. Waiting on my friend from the Air Force to meet us here. He is a local around here. [​IMG]
