Thanks! Sorry again the the spelling mistakes. I seem to find one every time I open a page!

You realize that the bike will be triple brown after that ride!!! ;)

Good luck with the seat. You'll need it! If you have a few $$$ on the side, get a Sargent or any other after market seat, it will save your trip. At least, do a 4-5 hour test ride before making your final decision!

Good luck, Marc

Merci EMTNEK!

I would use Heidenau K60 if i'd go back. The TKC's are just too soft and don't last long enough.

Brave and crazy... This is a good way to put it. I must say I felt kinda alone on my way back! (and f... crazy to be alone!)

Thanks for reading, Marc

I know it's a bit long in the tooth now; but I'll bet the adventure (muck on the Dempster) will stay with you forever.
I've had the despair "I want my momma!" rides as well (Liaird soup comes to mind first), but what impressed me the most was your continued sense of humour throughout the ride report. Made me laugh out loud a few times. Thanks!
Salute!
Cheers, Brian
100% right Brian.

Not sure I would chance it again (getting old?). I would probably wait for a dry day to get back, but it's a ride I will never forget and I'm kinda proud I made it back in one piece.

Hope it's not too cold in Winnipeg.

Take care, Marc

Its nice to escape through your report as we plow through our winter here. Looking forward to warmer weather. ;)

Lots of great info, pics, advice. Thanks for sharing your ride and detailed narration of an epic adventure!

Cheers.

Great report, thanks. I hope to go up and back from Colorado next summer.
Are there enough trees at the campgrounds to hang a hammock?

Hi and thanks for taking the time to read.

Most campgrounds will by located in wooded areas. I don't see any issues taking along a hammock but the more you go north, the smaller the trees get so keep that in mind!
