Made it to Skagway

Then rode to Whitehorse with Roger, Bob, Dave and Mike. These boys are into bikes and cars in a serious way so we exchanged stories about restorations.



Then met up with Brian and Keith at Haines Junction and they helped me fix my rear flat. Real stand up guys.



Then Met Kim and Mike (with a lovely Texas accent) who happened to ride a Tiger and had the rear tube I needed.

Missed you going through Whitehorse, looks like your trip is going good. Enjoy the northern scenery, and long hours of daylight.

still coming to Seward?

Your thread caught my attention as I recently did part of your trip on another orange tiger:


Anyways, I live in Seward, and if you're still planning to visit Seward, let me know, or shoot me a PM. I'm a biologist with UAF and my office is in the SeaLife Center if you'd like a tour. I'll be here until late Wednesday morning, then I'm hoping to head to D2D.

If anyone is coming through Anchorage tomorrow, let Brendon at The Motorcycle Shop know. Has a part coming in tomorrow for a down Tiger in Dawson. I'm headed out early tomorrow and running straight through.

Hey Nancy,
Sounds like your trip all came together pretty well. You meet the nicest folks on motorcycles no matter where you are. Sometimes just winging it is the way to go. Sorry I missed meeting you in Northern California but maybe we will cross paths another time on the road. Good luck on your journey south towards home. Paul
