Day 7: Canol Junction to Dawson

Well, got a good early start to the day, It was still damp out, not raining, but looking like it could. Good motivation to get going!! I was on the road by 8:15.

Some old mining company trucks at the south end of the Canol Road.

I ride in to Whitehorse for that now far overdue oil change and breakfast...Oil comes first! I don't want to miss my chance!
First traffic light since Smithers!!

Downtown is actually quite busy, it certainly feels like a city, most traffic I've seen in a long while now! I ride towards an intersection with a 2 way stop, myself having the rightaway...Luckily, I'm always scanning intersections, and I see someone gliding right through the stop sign without even slowing down!! I hit the brakes firmly, and hit my new 135db horn...They didn't even flinch!! I'll be glad to get on the highway again...

I don't think it's called Yukon Harley anymore, but I went to the non Yamaha/Suzuki dealer, as it was the first I saw. They were real nice by going out of their way to get me an oil pan, and dispose of my used oil for me, despite how busy they were! Props to them for that.
