Hello noobs joining adv
 
Just wanted to say hello. We are new to adv riding but not to motorcycling.
Our screen name represents us both. J= Jade and he's just bought a new F800gs.
K= Kelly she just bought a new G650gs. We have some big plans for some riding this summer. We have a friend who bought a sertao last summer. So he surely will be on a lot of our adventures. We hope to meet some new folks thru out this summer. Look forward to any and all advice anyone is willing to share with us. Have a great spring everyone and can't wait till summer. :freaky

Welcome from Palmer, J & K (All I can think of is agent J and agent K from MIB:lol3) Maybe we can meet up this spring and go for a shadedown ride on those fancy new bikes:D Take some time and surf around the forum, expecially the Alaska section and you will find TONS of useful info. Maybe you can come to Dawson City in June with the gang for D2D!! I went last year for the first time and had a BLAST. Jeff

Hello and welcome ADVnoobs J&K.

Congrats on the new bikes and thanks for filling out your profile. Speaking of which, I too am a Harley owner. :wink:

Come on by Alaska Leather Sat. March 9th for Barb's Movie Night and introduce yourselves. Fun! :choppa

Warmest regards, Mark H.

Welcome although I won't be doing much riding this year. I do have a mostly good shinko 705 rear that needs a good home. 150/70-17. Just taking space in the garage. Look forward to meeting you at Movie Night.

Howdy! Welcome aboard. Great group here in Alaska. Its looking like my summer will be filled with family stuff so riding will be sparse (not even sure if I will make D2D this year :cry)

welcome
 
Welcome from the north! I echo the D2D gathering, its a great time to meet other riders. The Alaska ADV community is a friendly bunch and we've enjoyed meeting people and reconnecting with old friends alike. Let me know if you swing through Fairbanks, we've been known to throw an ADV party for travelers.
We hope to be at D2D this year though I may ride something a little different...

Thanks for the warm reception. We have already planned to attend d2d. Is there a place in Dawson anyone would recommend for lodging? Looks like things are getting full quick there. So wanna get reservations quickly. Solar moose my family owns the arctic bowl in Fairbanks. So I get up that way regularly. Will let you know when we come up. Thanks again will see everyone in Dawson for sure.

Depends on if you are tenting it or looking for a soft bed in a room. If the latter, the annex of the Downtown Hotel is in the middle of all the action and very comfy. They even have a hot tub/jacuzzi if I remember right:wink:

I have reservation at hotel downtown. Once I have my orders I am going to cancel. If that happens you can have if you want.

Drunk_Uncle 02-27-2013 04:14 PM

Well you may have first dibs on my reservation at the down town hotel for D2D. Got my orders today. I will be in a very sunny, sandy location for a year.

J&K 02-27-2013 10:28 PM

Uncle
 
Sent you a pm about the hotel. Thanks sorry your getting shipped out. Supposed to go to warm places in the winter. Be safe

J&K 03-01-2013 12:43 AM
