wow the fires really trashed the Telegraph area
better than Siberia now
Thanks, really gives a bit of an idea of what the area is like
DR650's and a DRZ(?). I love it!
Yup, 2 DRs, a DRZ, and an AT
Nicely done, very enjoyable.
I like the way you carried the spare tire.
I was recently up in the Yukon on my Honda Forza 300 maxi-scooter. I did about 1km of the Dempster just to read all of the signs.
I probably could have made it to Tuktoyaktuk but I did not have the time available. I also was running out of tires. It would have been a slow trip but I have done long gravel roads before on the scooter.
I was also by myself. The gas planning would have to have been done.
There were too many bears for my liking.
If I win the lottery I might do it.
Dawson City was a 6500 km trip from Hope, BC on the scooter. My biological family is related to the Dawson several different ways I am told.
That's awesome-- Just need to manage tires and fuel for next time
The DRZ guy deserves a trophy...
No shit! I just did 2500 kms in 1 week on a 1200 GS,,, never mind a revvy 400!
And I owned a DRZ... a 1/2 day of dirt riding was fine. But 15 minutes at street speeds was brutal.
Suzuki should pay him.
He rode the tar out of that DRZ with a smile the whole way. However, he is only in his mid twenties :) Happy to say he collapsed into bed like the rest of us on our return trip through Eagle Plains. He ran from Faro to Tuk then did the south Canol on his way back.
But my Forza 300 maxi-scooter was very smooth for 6500 km in 2 weeks even with the missing swing arm bolts.
I did a 1000 mile day on a DRZ 400 with stock saddle, on my way out west to meet somebody riding down from Alaska. We did the Continental Divide Trail. I've done other 1000 mile days, but never again on a stock DRZ saddle.

I just did 4900 km's in 6 days on my '82 R65 LS, I don't think it was ever designed as a long distance hauler.
Since this thread has turned into a I just did...I'll jump in,
2007 250 Super Sherpa 6500 km in 10 days
Sorry, couldn't help myself on that little hijack.
In 08, i was much younger....lol, i did 6600 MILES on a xr650l honda in 10 days,did the Dalton round trip in 23 hrs. Poor lil 650 i held WFO for so long i almost felt guilty !!
With such a memorable adventure I made these GoPro Quick videos documenting my trip...should have posted last spring/summer when I completed them...anyhow just wanted to share (I have a shit computer and can't afford to upgrade yet, so editing videos is NOT FUN). Day one video of the playlist is all time laps photos.
Hoping someone out there likes some of them, the play list is from my 19 days on the road
Yeah I couldn't get onto the road to Tuk on this 2017 trip...so of course an excellent reason to return to the Dempster and Tuk
