Another satisfied DR buyer and ADVrider junkie because of that AK trip. Snowrider, you might be able get Suzook sponsorship for these rides- Peanut Butter gets boring after a while .

Have you compiled a list of mods and equipment for this trip? I'd recognize that packing job anywhere!

Good luck, stay safe and have fun.

Yep. If you sneezed, you passed right by Kenna. Not much there. And you passed by a good watering hole too. Have a safe one!

Not only is Snowrider getting people to buy DR's, I see lots of first time posters. I guess they are waiting for something worth to post to! And they found it. Killer report Snow.

I love that movie! One of my favorites.

I'm in El Paso now. I enter Mexico early tomorrow morning. I just saw a guy on a sportbike wearing a big Mexico flag as a cape! It flew behind him like a superhero's when he was riding.
