Eek DK ADV Touring US, Canada and Alaska on KTM950ADV

Hey!

I sold my house, business and about everything I owned (incl. my HP2) in Denmark, and went on a plane to the US's eastcoast (Fredericksburg VA). On my second day in the US, I purchased a KTM950ADV 06'. It's now broken in, done very little offroad but it's time will come Thinking of leaving VA round april 10th.

My plan is: Go west, southwest, do some of the TAT, do some sanddunes on the westcoast, go north and end up somewhere in Alaska... Not a detailed plan, but they will come along the way. There should be plenty of oppotunaties to do some serius offroad through this trip...

I'll try to get online and post pics and stories along the way. Hopefully I'll meet alot of ADVRIDERS, who's got some knowledges about where to ride and what to see, and where to stay... Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Looking forward to meet people and get some adventure. Might see you out there.

HEllo and welcome.

Might I suggest you think about being in Dawson, Yukon in Canada for Solstice with many other advriders. Fun!

Check out the 'Great White North' forum for the D2D (Dust to Dawson) ride thread.

Otherwise, maybe see you when you get this far north. Mark H.

Hey AKDuc!

Thanks, I just signed on the D2D. Should be perfect timing for me being in that area.
If not before, I'll see you there. I'll be the one with the "DKADV" licensplate and the Danish flag

'Come to de Island Mon'

Hey Deuce.
I just gotta look into my Zumo to find out where that would be... But I got plenty of time on my hands, but no home... Actually a really nice feeling.

950's ROCK!

In that case, there's a KTM Adventure Tour in Mammoth CA 6/22-24/07. Put some dirt tires on your bike and be there..

We are over on the 'Left Coast'. Big island north of Seattle about 3 hrs. You can't miss it. Give us a shout when you get close

Hej og god tur fra en udedansker i Amerika. Hvad er dine videre planer?
Hvis du skulle komme til Georgia, så kom endelig forbi. Vi har the North Georgia Mountains lige for døren, så der er masser at se.

Igen, hilsen og god tur,


Gert


BTW: Der er selvfølgelig også et Dannebrog på min 950....
