Are you in Skagway now? I hope it is warmer there than here in Whitehorse. It has been fun following your extensive travels. I am surprised that "little" bike keeps going and going and going. It should be painted pink and called some kind of bunny.
Ah interesting. If you scroll down through page 202 you get to see the east coast of the US to the west coast in 10 seconds!
Good on you Nathan. I met you way back in Manali India, before you were famous! Or is that infamous?
Thanks guys. I guess it's been four and a half years and 35,000 miles in the making to reach this point, not all that time riding of course. But a few hurdles to get over along the way. Once I get back to England (end of month) I'll write a proper update and download, for now, a few more pics...
Good to see you got yourself some proper (warm) gear. And glow-y, too. Well done, Nate!
Awesome dude! Sydney to Alaska...the long way :)
Iam SOoooooo jealous ! .
I was thinking the same.
Dude I had an S-90 once in the distant past.
Never thought of flogging it like you've done with your postie.
Great job! i am in awe of your exploits.
Ride on Nate and Dot, Ride ON!
Great stuff! What an adventure!
Hadn't checked in for a while glad to see you're back to riding and posting about it to. I'll have to catch up in a few weeks.
Still have my original postman t-shirt, and I often get asked about it when I wear it.
Shoot! Why not just finish the adventure by reaching Prudhoe Bay? Imagine! I think you would be the first guy to make it there on a 150 cc...just saying! Awesome Report!
I just met Nathan on his way to Seattle. He got off the
AK Ferry in Bellingham this morning. Here's a few pics of
Ride on Nathan
Congratulations on making it to AK and stopping to visit with Tom Edison. Enjoy your time in the beautiful PNWet.
Thanks Tom. Great photos. And great to meet you. Thanks for flagging me down. I don't suppose you saw that hat on the back fall off as I rode down the road by chance? Worn it all the way from NY, then left it on the back as I pulled off. Doh!
And Chilango, I thought about it, but time and cash were against me. And had I made it to Prudhoe you'd have said why not down to Argentina as well. And I guess at some point you have to know when it's time to stop. In the future I'd like to go back to Alaska and with more time and money on my side see it properly. But I loved Skagway, met some great people, didn't feel I had anything left to prove, and was happy to be bording the ferry south rather than riding further north on a bike with a failing bottom-end. And didn't some South American dude do Prudhoe on a scooter, I seem to remember seeing the pics...
But yeah, great place Alaska, and the Yukon.
Nice to meet you also Nathan. Sorry mate didn't see your cover
fall off. Take care and say hello the next time your in town.
Lets hope you do not get too many of these!
I hadn't heard of Nathan until I met him Friday. I've just finished reading his trip reports and :eek1 .
Pretty cool dude, the road has taught him well .
I'm glad I waved him over something I've never done here in Edison.
I'm subscribed .
Nathan, I see you've still got an '09 rego sticker on yer bike there.
You should be aware that the local plod will sting you for $30 for having that there, and another $30 for not attaching the new one.
Absolutely awesome man, have followed you the whole way. As a former CT110 rider myself I appreciate your love of the machine.
Maverick, I'm sure UK and US plod don't give a rats! Maybe when Nathan rides back to Aussie one of these day;-)
