Ha-ha... we were on our way to the Dust to Dawson rally in the Northern Yukon Territory and on the Top of the World Highway... Rain,mud,slick,ruts,pot holes.... all the good stuff!
This photo makes me laugh because as James began to 'pick up his bike', I yelled "Wait" and James thought, oh good, she's coming to help me pick it up. But, actually, I was going in my top box for my camera and didn't want to miss catching this photo op!

Top of the World Highway, one of the most Northern highways in the world. Granted this has nothing to do with our Tierra del Fuego ride (which is on the other end of the spectrum) just chatting and waiting for Monday morning to be here! Colleen

Chat away. This sounds like it will be a fun ride & it's added to the dozen others I'm currently reading.

For safety's sake please fix that. You want the wire to pull on the side of the bolt that will tighten it, you have the lower bolt wired to loosen.


Have a great trip!!!
