    Mr. Fighter, I spoke to Joe Mat. Over at the Harley shop he said he didn't see a problem with D2D getting some stuff.

    If there's a Uly for a door prize, I'm letting you all know right now that I'll rig this drawing like a Russian election. And yes, I'd like to be prez.

    btw,

    the road has been 80+mph and superb thus far (Whitehorse) and only two construction zones so far, neither w/ any wait or difficulty. Zero snow, but a light sleet at Steamboat.

    It's looking like a favorable beginning for anyone heading North early!

    Okay, listen up all you guys-Bill needs an article on Dualsporting asap for the new Midnight Sun Riders mag. I know most of you read and I'm betting some of you can write. So please throw something together with photos (as long as none are of me) and call me. They are doing layout this week and everyone would love to see D2D or Dualsporting featured. Even a ride report or a couple of them put together as article. Pleeeeeze, I don't have time to do it. Thanks! Barb

    And remember, motorcycles always go to the front of the line in a Construction Zone.

    Line 'em up. This'll looks like it'll have to be fast-track. :1drink

    The photo's/article that Fighter and I discussed were of the D2D, Smithy. Fact of the matter is though that I bet Barb and the mag would love to have whatever you could put together in quick fashion. Not sure how fast she had in mind but am assuming it's got to be pdq.

    (edit: mags usually want the highest resolution photos you can give 'em.)

    some swag courtesy of the fine folks at GCI

    1 AK winter type jacket with removable fleece liner :thumb
    3 long sleeve twill shirts
    4 black hats

    This stuff would like to ride on a chase truck if somebody is going. Otherwise I'll just bring it with me.
