Looks cold at Stone Mtn.! Bike looks clean from the rain.
Temperature dropped down to around 31 degrees Fahrenheit I believe. All the gauges and most everything else was vibrating so bad from near hypothermia. I am not really certain about anything at this point. Except for the fact that my expensive Gerbing jacket liner failed. I am so pissed about that you just wouldn’t believe.
I have a heated liner and glove liners from Cycle gear that have been great , touch wood. Going up with just the glove liners as I am used to cold living here in Canada. I think the forecast is better the further north you get, hang in there.
Put on your rain gear as it helps block wind and keep in the heat.
All I have is my Aerostitch Roadcrafter riding gear. It’s water proof mostly. However I will start carrying my rain gear once again. Because you are correct about them
I also have an older Aerostitch which was water proof for about a year, then I started carrying my rain suit, nothing beats a dedicated rain suit!
Maybe buy a rain suit in Whitehorse.
Thinking about that already, Thanks
Actually I was in Dawson City waiting out the snow storm the same time you were waiting it out in Eagle Plains. I rode halfway down the Tuk Road in 2018 it was too messed up and muddy for me to make it to Tuk so I turned around and went back down the Dempster. Hi-De-Ho went up after I came down and got stuck in the mud for I think two days with some other riders.
Thanks Dave I will check it out if I get a chance
Typical Public Cardlock fuel stop. Read the instructions follow them. Get your gas simple.
Have the same bike, so i'm definitely in
Tire problem solved. Got my heated gloves back on line. Jacket liner has a short in it for sure. It almost set me on fire and then blew the fuse
Are you in Whitehorse Now?
Dawson City just put the new tire on the rear. I think it will do the job. Had maybe 2500 miles left in the E-07 + I will take it back home with me I think. Haven’t made up my mind 100% on that.
i am leaving on or around july 23 for same trip. maybe i see you on the return. good luck. i have done this trip once before.
i bought merino wool sweater in whitehorse. saved me on my last trip
Pick your days around the weather on the Dempster. It can be a quagmire one day and dry the next. I was with Hi-De-Ho last year in the mud. We tempted fate and rode on a wet day and had to abandon the bikes 12 miles south of Tuk. The couple days before were a piece of cake for other riders and the road dried out after we left. If you choose wisely you will make it without difficulty. Safe travels.
