    That's a great idea. I've seen that SDCBCAR route and have been wanting to try it. I'm flying back from SFO that day, so I can't make it. Plus, think about how hung over this crowd is going to be that day :eek1

    Lonestar 2112 is going in June. I may join him on part of that trip. I can only take 2 weeks at one time. Want to do Cabo, Continental Divide, and Bolivia too.

    A trip to Alaska? :eek1

    I guess this is the thread for big fuel tanks, as well as big bikes. I'm carrying 3.2 gallons :cry.

    Maybe I can pay a storeage fee to one of you GSA owners to keep a few gallons in your tank.:lol3

    I'm in. Use both my bikes for fun, pleasure and misery. Went to Alaska last "summer" on the Hypermotard. It sucked ass and was totally awesome. I'm eyeing some of your longer rides south, Fudgy. (We met at the Long Beach show, I was the short dude with Duy).

    Get some RotoPax and that should get you to some of the more distant fuel stops. I'm sure going with a GSA wouldn't hurt. You could always siphon some off that 8.7 gallon tanker.

    I'm in! My #1 New Year's resolution is ride more, and more difficult terrain. Alaska, Baja, CDT, Utah, TAT, or just in our own backyard - count me in. Gotsta practice.:D

    Funny you should say that. I have been thinking about mounting two of those (or a 2 gallon version) on a palmerproducts.co.uk rack, along with some Givi semi-hardside saddlebags.

    Kind of like inmate WoodWorks, but with smaller bags:

    the orange ones cost double.....:D




    how could i forget, lots of plastics left on the trail, and the bikes were not as big anymore when they made it to the pavement.......:rofl



    from what i found out, we need at least 3 weeks to do alaska, and that is on a diet.

    2-3 days to the canadian border, another 3-4 days to alaska. then the ride home.

    l.a. to seattle.............1,200 miles
    seattle to fairbanks.. ..2,200 miles

    Hyder doesn't count! :lol3


    4 weeks to ride round trip Alaska from here.. anything else is way too rushed to enjoy.

    And that is riding every day, all day. (almost)

    A 2 week ride to Anchorage, leave the bike for a bit, then fly back up to enjoy the ride back home..
