I do not ride one of those bikes, but it was good to meet a bunch of you people at Yukon Yamaha. I stopped in on my KLR . It was good to see that many Super T's gathered and it looked like all were haveing a good time..

Looking forward to it....

I love these Alaska RR's and seeing that we have two of our kids that live in Anchorage, it sorta adds to the excitement. This will be going into my bookmarks the next thing. Thanks for taking the time for the rest of us.

I got back from Alaska 5wks.ago,was a great experience for sure,enjoy&keep us tunedin,I camped there at Liard's Hot Springs,skeeters were the worst there than anywhere,i guess it was the swamp area that made it so bad.

I'm have fun riding with you! Great RR and pic's. Looks like you are doing it right, not carrying a great big load. Something I have to learn to do better. Thank you.
