    hello,

    im currently in Dawson...

    i mounted a brand new Heidenau K60 for my rear (BMW G650X Challenge) and after 3000km is nearly dead, i had thought (my fault) that i would be able to get more km's out of it.
    as im in the area, i am planning on going to Invik, and returning to Dawson, i expect my tires to be dead...

    anyone know if there is (any dirt or street) new or used tires to be had here in Dawson (in the above sizes)? i have sent a few emails to Whitehorse and Fairbanks, and waiting for their replies

    thank you
    edward

    Not sure what is going on, but I bought gas twice at the North 60 Petro/Dominion Petro Express. The first was for $29.03 and second time $ 22.36. Credit Card was charged $97.58 and $98.20 respectively. Better take a look at your's if you did. Maybe nothing more than a posting error but........

    It may be a posting error. I used the same station and my charges are accurate.

    Hey I'm gonna start a new thread about this because I got charged $97.58 too! :huh

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Edit: Just got off the ph w/cc company. They said it's common practice to for gas stations around NA and should show the correct amt of purchase in a couple days.

    +1 for us, the longest ride we have done on the KLRs, or on any bike, my wife rode her Yamaha FZ6 as well, we covered almost 1300 miles, had the time of our lives, esp because we had our dads with us. we will def be making this trip every year. got to meet some new people, great job for putting this thing together!

    we missed the midnight ride, how can we get some stickers?

    Andrew and I had a marvelous time at D2D. We headed up the Dempster and are now chillin' in Inuvik. We had heavy rain here in Inuvik last night....no word on how far south the rain fell. There were rumors the Dempster closed for awhile due to smoke, but cars are still getting through although they report flames on both sides of the road in spots :eek1.

    I had a spill in the crazy deep gravel north of Fort McPherson. The slide ripped off my left side peg and shifter. Andrew was able to cobble together a working facsimile using bits of my highway pegs and tools on hand...I highly recommend keeping a Mark I Farmboy handy on this type of adventure :D

    Thanks again for a great party...we are headed next for the Super T rally in Whitehorse :freaky. See ya!
