it's the rough mileage, Maynard.
210 from my house to Gakona
120 from Gakona to Tok
200 from Tok to Dawson.
Got the tire changed on the 950 and it made it home in the trunk of my car w/ no drama. Thanks to Barb for the smokin' deal on the replacement for my smoked, ripped, zero mile TKC-80 !
Got the XT-225 ready w/ a zootier exhaust, cargo plate and wrist wrest.
...except for the packing part. That'll happen 30 minutes before liftoff.
No drama? I want to see pictures of the 950 going in the trunk then.
Leaving Bellingham, WA in the morning (6/12) for Dawson. The ride down was 3100 miles, those dam detours, ride back will be shorter. See ya all on Thursday!
We just seperated from the local Ptero's who are heading for the Haul Road at Delta Junction. We are now sitting in Beaver creek. The ride over Denali Hwy was spectacular. Gusgus and Friar met up with us this morning at the gracious house. All is good. Nice to be on the road again. Be in the states in about 4-5 days. PS: thanks to Barb for getting Fite such a furry mount. We are having a great time with that and he spends a lot of time petting and grooming it... No More Mondays - glad I don't have to do it until August...
Tractor Rider tells me Barb broke her foot today!
Geez, I didn't know the Turtle Club was 10 miles north of Fairbanks in Fox!!!
I arrived after the dining area closed and went to the Red Dog for Karen's Fish Taco's and a light discussion with Lori & Dan.
Was that Mount McKinley shining in the distance under the haze?
Anyhow, I'm staying at Go North Hostel and tomorrow is a down day. Tires and a wash for the bike. And, Clothes and wash for me.
Where are you going to be Tuesday Nite when you return to Fairbanks?
Hope to be ready for Wednesday Ride,
If true, best of luck Barb!
A whole buncha GSes and a snortin' Skull-Strom arrived in FAI tonight... ate some typically awesome prime rib at the Turtle Club, then a sprint out to F.E. Gold Camp. That's a fine stretch of blacktop, for sure!
Ride safely, everyone!
Give me a call tomorrow morning after 08:00... let me know if there's anything I can assist you with. (907) 978-3603.
Tuesday night return will be at the F.E. Gold Camp, about 15 miles up the Steese from the Turtle Club. That gang will prolly be spread out when they arrive from up north, but ?? their arrival time.
There's plenty of room there, and $25 hostel rooms. I might stay there that night and ride to Tok w/ them, but I'm swamped w/ to-do's and all I do know is that I'll be in Tok by Wed night.
I was going to let Barb tell the story. I stoped by AL and that's where I heard it. Speedy Recovery Barb.
Foot is not broke, my leg is. Spiral fracture of the fibula, will find out when surgery is in a day or two. Glad I was wearing my Alpinestars Tech6's, might have been a lot worse. The topside of hard bag slammed down on my leg going 5 miles an hour in a driveway. Not quite sure what happened. They gave me morphine at the Palmer hospital and a pocket full of percs to go. Another one of my customers was in the ER with his knee torn up from a dirt bike incident in palmer. So, I don't think I'll be in Dawson. Barb
Thanks for the report....BUT BUMMER!!!
Barb, If you need anything call us.
I hope you have a speedy recovery!
Hope you feel better...enjoy the legal narcotics
Is it the same side you were gimped on last (or was it the year before?)year?
To confirm...Sista Monica plugged your shop quite nicely on Saturday...
Heal fast! Sorry to hear that Barb! Hows Toddy doing on his ride?
