Grande Prairie to Inuvik 2008

Decided to do the Dempster this year, and I am very glad I did.

Had Good weather :

Good food:

The highway construction (before we even got close to the Dempster) took its toll:

I found something new in Whitehorse.....translucent duct tape!!!!! A quick repair and keep on going.(I will have to invest in a headlight guard, or take this opportunity to pimp up the lighting/fairing...?)

Hit Dawson City; shower, drink, eat, gamble (a little), drink (a lot), sleep (a little):

Decide to make a quick run to Chicken before we head up the Dempster:

Across the border:

And on to the Chicken Saloon!!!! (drink, eat, sleep(a little))

Two of us (KLR, F650GS) head back to start the Dempster. Back to Dawson to fuel up, get some supplies and get on the Dempster by about 4pm:

The scale and the breathtaking scenery are hard to capture in a picture, you have to see it for yourself!!

Stop at Eagle plains for gas, oil the chain, clean the dust out of....that was not possible.

At the circle:

The hazards of this road:

The beauty of this road:

The Yukon/NWT border:

The Mighty Mackenzie:

Inuvik!!!!! (lots of bugs and nice people):

Heading back out the next day: (The scenery was amazing, you could see forever)

We got this thing licked!!!!! .....wait a minute!

30 km's to go and the GS picks up a nice sharp piece of shale and shreds the tube: What can a friend do, other than document the repairs

10 km's later and another flat on the GS!! (we were using the same tires for the rear , Avon Gripsters, but the KLR was flats)

We make it "off" the highway, at about 12 or one in the morning: Camp have a bite to eat, wash the bikes in the morning and get on the road.

The bridge at Teslin, 1 km of steel grate bridge on an MC.

Cool Norton in Watson Lake: Those Nortons can pack a real load!!!!!!

Home!!!! about 6200 km's in about 8.5 days. One set of Gripsters, 1/2 litre of oil, (lost count of the fuel consumed).

The liver is evil and it must be punished!
