Grit.

I made the ride up and back from California on my GS WITH A BUDDY, and thought I had done something worthwhile. Here's a youngster on a much longer ride, on a bike that wasn't really designed for the Alaska carnage, doing it alone.

This is a well-written tale of gumption, grit and grime.. definitely fodder to warm the heart of any ADV rider.

Here's a link to our RR from the '09 ride up.
The Great Ride North.

We rode a lot of the same territory, as would say anyone who has made the ride, but each one's experience is different.

..and as a post script, pay no mind to those who are clamor for more updates. We did a frikkin ROLLING ride report, and guys were getting mad if we didn't post up every day...no matter that there was no wi-fi or phone half the time up there. Do it as it comes to you! This whole thing is priceless.

Good on ya, Ruff. Keep it upright.
