After months of planning and preparing I made it to the Arctic Ocean. It was an adventure!
Tremendous determination in an incredibly challenging, isolated situation in one of the most remote places on earth. Your ride is an inspiration to aspiring motorcyclists like me. Mud and deep loose gravel were "a challenge?" Hope to get to the point where that is just "A challenge."Thank you!
Had rain the last 200 miles of the Dempster Highway. Took 11.5 hours to travel that 200 miles, it was nightmarish. Slick mud with hill climbs and descents. Mud and deep loose gravel were a challenge.
Just one, completed an SS1000 on day one of the trip the rest was just the quest to Tuk. I also rode through Jasper and Banff National Park on the way back.How many Iron butts did this qualify for Rollin?
BMW - this is not his first trip like this. He is quite the long distance, challenging terrain rider. His blog or maybe it is threads on the iron butt site are great reading. Hopefully he will post the links again.
Damn Steve that was an important detail you left out. Glad you are healing and the bike survived. This is the first hard fall you have taken on one of these trips isn't it?
Boy, you are right there. Dang Rollin' !!!! I know exactly what you mean by the grader work. They usually leave a road here that I simply can't ride for a few days. It's like riding on marbles in places and then 8 inches of snow in others. I did it once and never again. Have to let the road traffic pack things back down and kick the biggest portion of the loose stuff back off the road.Damn Steve that was an important detail you left out.
