Well put the first mile on my new f800 gs yesterday. Till I realized my temporary plate was missing. Unfortunately agent k's bike has just landed in new jersey so will be after the 8th of April before she gets to ride. Hopefully the wind will die down soon and I can start putting some miles on the bike. Can't wait for d2d be our first long ride of the season.

Our screen name represents us both. J= Jade and he's just bought a new F800gs.
K= Kelly she just bought a new G650gs.

I got to exchange a few emails with Jade while I was in Morocco. Glad to hear you got set up with new bikes and The Motorcycle Shop got you set up with a good deal.

If you need anything for them when you're in Fairbanks, come see us at Trail's End BMW/Outpost Alaska just off Airport Way. We also run a weekly after work ride called Throttle Therapy. Be sure to come say hi when you come to Fairbanks! Cheers, Justin

Welcome J & K!

Welcome J & K!!! I'm pretty new to the adventure bike thing too...but not new to motorcycles. I signed up for D2D as well. Hopefully they'll let me across the border. I plan on riding a lot this summer, and maybe get in some good camping trips on the weekends. I'm in Wasilla also, thought about getting the bike out today, maybe tomorrow, roads look pretty good.

Thanks Steve and Justin. Have always enjoyed dealing with the outpost. All of my Harley's have come from them. Steve what are you riding? Agent k and I are famous for night rides after work and long weekends when it's possible. Will have to have a valley get together and compare notes on cool places to ride. Roads are looking promising. Will be adventuring out soon. Need to get my break in miles on the scooter as quick as possible.

Well got my first 13 miles in today. Really sweet bike so far. Look forward to having a few zeros behind that. Sun was awesome.

Jeff are you riding to d2d with anyone? We are gonna leave Tuesday night after work and stop in eureka for the night. We have a cabin there. If anyone wants a piece of ground to pitch a tent we have tons of room.

I rode with Marbee, Mud and the gang last year, not sure what the plan is this time around. WE left on Wednesday morning, rode to Tok spent the night at Thompson's and then rode to Dawson on Thursday. I would like to take a run up to Eagle (weather permitting) on the way this year, if possible. I'm sure there are lots of folks going around that timeframe.

Their will be three of us traveling together. Bad part is we are easily distracted. So wont subject anyone to our careless traveling style.
