    Beamertwin, slightly off topic: Who is the Helge you were talking to? Under what name does he post here? Could be an old aquaintenance of me....

    Those stickers are only for AK? Or do you make them for all kinds of states/provinces?

    Hey Tim,I was at WheelDog's when you were there.I remembered
    your handle,but never connected to the links.
    I enjoyed my ride to Alaska,and meeting a tourer like you was very memorable.
    If you communicate with Fletcher,please tell him hello.

    Good idea to learn an alias "real name" before knocking on neighbors doors assking where the bikers hang out,although his truck does say Wheel Dog.

    Or just trust your GPS,on the other hand,I would not have got to meet Friar Mike and his family and got to see more beautiful countryside if I had just pulled right in.

    Helge Helgeson is from Norway and traveling around the world with a R100 w/sidecar. His stop here was to assemble the bike, with help from the local ADV rider group, after receiving it from Eastern Russia on his way south and east again. He just sent (this week) the bike over the hop to Columbia from Panama. Though not a poster here, he does lurk from time to time. You may have read some of his written words in a book or bike/travel mag. He is writing about this motorcycle trip for a specific mag. Have you met him? An ace mechanic and does well with the photos too.
    This sticker deal was a group effort for the local ADV riders. No one could find a sticker for AK they would put on their bikes, so everyone got together with ideas and a rider did the final design and printing. I fronted the $ for printing and will break even if everything sells. There may be a re-print and/or a new design if all works out. One of the earlier posts has a link to a sticker mass producer.

    I see Fletcher occasionally but haven't since our Deadhorse run. He made it to Key West allright, as did I. Hope to see you again on the road. I appreciated meeting & talking with you also.

    I would take a few of those stickers. Barb might like to distribute them, too! Since I don't look at this forum too often, I may not know when and if you have them so I will stay in touch with akduc about them.

    Well hello Hogrocket! I like your description of "relaxation specialist" in your profile! :lol3

    Hey Les, do up your own thread introducing yourself to others here. Inquiring minds will want to know.

    Alaska Leather does have about a dozen or so of each of the stickers left.

    See ya, Mark H.

    Hi Fireground,
    Two each will be set aside for you. Since there is no AK road midpoint for an exchange follow the mailing instructions listed in this thread and they shall be yours.:D

    I gave 30 of each design to Barb...she wanted some for her SA bike and to have available to summer travelers. Glad to hear AKDuc say there are only a dozen of each remaining at AK Leather! And summer has not even started!
    The action would be...get them while you can!

    Thanks. Knew there was something I liked about you... Pretty mild this winter, still riding. Some of the best roads in the state where you grew up.
    Always something a fellar "needs" at the Goldfine's...I'm in there a lot, used to work there, maybe we'll cross paths... Give a shout when you're in town. Trip #7 to AK in the planning stages for July... Can't seem to get enough of it.

    To heck with stickers to wake up tail-gaters. James Bond had the best thing for people that follow too close. I believe they were .50 caliber armor piercing, weren't they? Or keep a pocket full of pea gravel to throw up into the air as you drive! Probably sounds as good as .50 cal. on a windshield! Just kidding, sort of. Anyway, I put two of those "watch out for motorcycle" decals on my Tiger trunk. Shows up a mile away but that doesn't stop Stupid.

    Manual chain oiler with a very big pump. Aim for the windshield.

    Paul, thanks again for doing this. I like them so well I just sent an order for two more, oval preferred, rectangle ok. Please hold two for me before you send the inventory off.
