THIS WILL BE OUR LIVE UPDATE AS WE TRAVEL. Sorry to disappoint but it will be a Parallel, a V, and an Opposed Twin! Still should be a great time Mine is the Parallel Twin - a 2014 Yamaha Super Tenere (don't worry I'll have a different ground cloth on the trip - and unfortunately no dog.) Here is our planning thread link in case you are interested in that - http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/3-twins-head-to-deadhorse-june-2017.1211516/ Please follow along with us and give us any route advice, pertinent weather or road updates, lodging suggestions or any help or advice you think we need. Josh will be on KTM 950SE - yes he is going to ride over 14,000 miles on an SE!! Mark will be on a 2004 BMW GS Adventure - and yes he has put over 113,000 miles on it! We also have a Triple joining us for the 1st quarter of the trip. - Kenny will ride with us out to the California coast on a Triumph Explorer 1200. Over the past couple of days Mark, Josh, and I have been reflecting back to our trip to Laguna Seca in 2005 when we witnessed Nicky Hayden winning the GP. The passing of Nicky has deeply affected all 3 of us and he will be in our thoughts this entire trip. I am sure we will spend many nights at campgrounds recalling the many times we saw him live at AMA events, MotoGP events, and all the times we watched and cheered at the TV while he campaigned in Europe. Godspeed Nicky.
