Our 05 GSA.
Those pictures are from last years March noob ride in DV. We planned to do 250 miles of dirt from Panamint to Saline to Steel Pass to Eureka Valley to Hunter Mountain Rd to Lippencott to Saline Valley then back to Panamint. I brought the extra gas for a buddy riding a 1200GS but when his non spoked rims got bent to shit on Steel Pass, we threw in an inner tube and rode back the way we came.
I was a little worried that the GSA wouldn't make it all the way around seeing how mpg's goes down when your slogging away in first gear climbing a jeep trail in gravel and sand.
If you're interested, we'll be in DV again this Jan and March... here's the links.
Guess I'm getting on or my arse was tired of being uncomfortable, so I sold the KTM
And bought an 1150GS, picked it up last week
First impressions are that I've made a good choice, very confidence inspiring at 5 celcius on wet roads, heated grips are good! Weather protection is a new experience for me and although not quite a supermoto the handling is superb, very quick to turn in and the engine, well that's kind of why I bought one.
Looks like the bike is in mint condition and IMHO the best colour available
Approaching Deadhorse, Alaska
Leaving Deadhorse, Alaska
Top of Atigun Pass, Alaska
Bird strike, near Challis, Idaho
Fully loaded, Top-Of-The-World Highway. I bought tires in Fairbanks and had them installed in Whitehorse.
What lights are those?
License plate not necessary in Alaska?
The plate is there, buried under the road grim, I'm sure.
Atigun Pass is a rite of passage for adventure riders. Congrats for making it there and back safely.
Sure enough, the plate is there. There are trucks constantly spraying the Dalton Highway with brine (I think it's a calcium chloride or magnesium chloride solution). It improves compaction and keeps the dust down, but it's nasty and slick when wet. And it's not the easiest grime to wash off the bike.
I was very fortunate to have excellent weather and the ride was pretty straight forward.
The picture really doesn't tell the mosquito story however.:eek1
Oh yeah.... that license plate is there, I'll never forget that Haul Road grime!
After (near 'Oil Spill Hill') Dalton Hwy.
my one (GSA 4/2002)
I've got an '02 1150GS with around 38K miles. Has taken me anywhere I've pointed it at...AND BACK!!! Now lets see if I can figure out how to upload pics...
Just a few days ago...
Okay, this is me on my 2000 GS with some ass on it.
