I finally found your RR and I enjoyed reading every bit of it (great write up and awesome photos!) I am glad your trip to Alaska and D2D worked out so very well for you!! Unfortunately, I ended up working on the slope all summer (missed D2D again) and I missed the best summer we have had up here in years
But every cloud has a silver lining...I scored a brand new 2012 KTM 990 Adventure and I was able to put just over 1300 miles on her earlier this month before coming back to work
Again, thanks for taking the time to post your awesome road report! Cheers!
