Since we are in the buns of steel thread, I should mention my July 4th 2010 Dalton-DASH.
Homer to Deadhorse. 1100 miles in 30 hours.
10 hour lay-over at Camp Deadhorse, (breakfast, shower, nap)
Deadhorse to Homer return trip in 28 hours.
. Total 2200 miles, elapsed time 68 hours.
KLR used only half a quart of oil.
(The other half I poured on the drive chain)
Warm enough to RAIN is warm enough to RIDE.
