    Doris is a BMW-sponsored Adventure rider (and TOURATECH sponsored :D :D ) who is probably approaching Prudhoe Bay currently (Feb28, 2009). Her F800GS is a "pre-serial" model (no serial#) but at some point she has to give it back to BMW.

    Here is a great video by Markus and Alberto of www.reismotor.nl

    Doris explains some of her preparations, and gets assistance from Helge Pedersen (who last rode on ice in Norway back in the '80s on his new R80G/S :lol3 :lol3 )....

    enjoy!

    At least they won't have to worry about the mud on the haul road.
