Extra Space

I'm ready too, but can't get all my stuff on my bike. Do you have any extra room? Looks like some open space between the tank bag and dry sacks.See you tomorrow.

Pssst... The Alaska thread isn't where your ride report goes.

Your ride report goes in the ride reports section.

Ah guys

It looks like you got enough stuff for a squad. Who wrote the TA? Do you really need all that? Canada and Alaska are civilized. Gas is available, lighter is safer, especially on bad roads.

Enjoy the Ride

^This. You can likely ditch the gas cans. That concours and vstrom should have no issues traveling up and through here. Are you planning to run the Haul Road or the Dempster? If so I'll let the "veterans" chime in.
I just came back from a Haines-Skagway-Whitehorse trip and there are quite a bit of frost heaves and can make it bumpy so be aware.
Other then that you guys have a safe run and looking forward to some pics.
