Very nice. This brings back memories. I've been liking those bikes the more I see them. I saw a road king going up the Dalton the last time I came down. You can do it on anything if you get lucky and the weather gods bless you. If they don't... such is life. Glad you made it and I like your style.

Great Ride! And a great Ride Report. I was following the spotwalla page when several guys did the UCC this summer. I assume you were with them? What a ride. That's an amazing distance in that amount of time.

I plan on going to Deadhorse next summer. Going up and back from St Louis in 16 days. I guess if you can do it from Key West, I should be able to do it from St Louis.. I hope..

Great job, congratulations on the huge accomplishment.

Other than the rain on the way to Alaska the ride went very well.

This was a solo ride.

Engine Bash Plate and Belt Guard

I am making the same trip except from Midland, MI instead of Key West starting on June 6, 2013. I am taking my 2011 Victory Vision Tour and want to get your exact engine bash plate and belt guard setup; hopefully fabricated and finished by the same folks who built yours.

My engine plate was made by Arlen Ness. Arlen Ness stopped making them but HMD also makes it.

Great ride report! I love reading these high mileage days ride reports. I also love that you did it on a different bike than would be expected. No GS? No problem!

A solo ride is the best. Great report. I met you at Pine Bluff, Fall Slimey Crud.

Something about a long solo, can't put my finger on it, but it is very appealing.

Solo = Do what you want WHEN you want.
Group = Wait around till 10 in the morning for everyone to get up and get going.

San diego to Panama w/ 3 riders. (only one made it non stop w/o major breakdown)
San Diego to Inuvik solo. 1 month. Had a great time, met all kinds of people, never felt alone. Great fishing and camping.
