    Fite,
    I'm working up some gift certificates (cash value or shop rate waiver...haven't decided yet) and will either a) deliver them to Dawson myself, b) hand them off to a Gruver that's passing through Fairbanks on the way (if any), or c) mail them down to Barb.

    So, any Gruvers coming through to make option b) a possibility?

    Hey Shawn
    I will be at your shop on about the 13th to have my k60's that I have on hold put on , I could deliver said swag to Dawson for you after I go to Prudoe bay and then down to Wassilla to pick up my friend from Spain, I think Pedro may be the only rider from Spain at the D2D, he speaks very little english so he doen't know what he is in for! I met him in Panama last winter!

    I can take them, assuming I get a temporary non-Gruver exemption.

    Now hear this!
    Steve Ruth from AKS Engineering has just donated a SideKicker!
    It's a side stand that fits a BMW 1200 GS. Winner will receive a certificate from Dapman and/or FastLane at the Friday night banquet.
    Just more incentive to get a banquet ticket and get it early!

    GS12 owners need to pay attention to this one!

    It's valued at $350.00!
    Thanks Steve!

    Lehman..... you mean this Lehman? :lol3:lol3

    That side stand is a way cool piece. Too bad it won't fit BiggerBird.
    I'm guessing any 1200 owner who shows up at the D2D Banquet will be watching this one closely.
    Not the trike ........... the swag.

    Watch this space for additional information on this "Fits 1200GS's Only" item.
    Currently consulting AKRider and a few other CounterSteering Committee members on the best way to handle this unique item.

    I'll be there Monday 5:00PM-ish.
    Staying 2 nights. Roll south Wednesday 8:00AM-ish.
    Staying at the new hotel across from FIA. New place this year so I don't know/can't remember the name. Backs up to the Royal Celebrity yard. Past Pikes then take a right on the frontage road. Right hander again on the road to Binkley's boats. That's the corner.

    I'll be leaving So Cal on June 14th with 18 days to explore. Plan is to get to Canada asap and meander toward Alaska. I would like to hit up D2D and was wondering what the camping options are in and around Dawson City. Also, on a side note I was wondiring if Hyder is worth checking out. Thanks in advance for any info.
