Thanks for all of the recent comments everyone.
Yes, Helen is a trooper.
She doesn't think she's a trooper for any of the reasons you listed though.
She says she is a trooper for putting up with me.
As an update, we finally could afford all of the parts and supplies needed to get the bike back into running shape in November.
The last of the back-ordered parts arrived today! Yipee! I hard hardly wait.
I tore into the bike earlier this week to find plenty of Dalton Highway grunge.
Some of the New Parts
I hope to see some reports this summer from all of you guys heading up to Alaska. Now is a great time to start planning.
