Day 6 The Dempster. Que ominous music

That shows you how tired I am. I spelled cue wrong. Sheesh
Da da daaahhh.
267 miles of gravel and a few loose screws

Before you start up the Dempster you have to stop at the Klondike River Lodge. It's the last place to buy fuel and has a very good cafe and Wi-Fi.



The lodge is owned by Gib (Capt Gib) an ADV nOOB that is trying to build a great motorcycle destination. Gib is asking for advice on what we want to make this place the best destination for a rider. My idea was to allow drop shipping of new tires and set up a tire change area.
Contact Gib at Captaingib@yahoo.com with ideas and requests. His Lodge is Themightyyukon.com
Here's your chance to create something perfect for us.



Capt Gib and Tanisha.
Gib has ridden this Harley up the Dempster, the Dalton, and the Top of the World all on street tires. He's got bigger balls then me.


Mile 0 Here we go

The scenery starts getting good about 50 miles in and stays distracting the rest of the ride.



The South side of the Tombstones



The Dempster Hwy Tombstone Mountains Info center-Closed




The Tombstone Mtns











The gravel is large and like riding on marbles. Big marbles










Tastes like chicken



Sapper Mountain



Fuel stop at Elephant Rock






The climb up the ridge















What was to be a quick fuel stop at Eagle Plains turns into a repair stop.




Which turns into a night stop. The smell of dinner cooking pulls me in.





Nothing around for a few hundred miles



All fixed. Note to self: carry a lot more washers. They make bolts shorter when needed.



No stopping. Look up
