Prudhoe Bay 2014

Well here it is, one day left to launch. I am very excited to have this chance to take a trip that has been in my thoughts for quite literally 30 years.

Your in for quite a ride my fellow inmate. Talked to a guy recently that did it, remember the haul road ain't no joke fast riding on it is keeping it upright.

Just returned From....

The ride your starting, and it is EVERY thing written about it, and more ! Safe Travels, and take pictures ! I am trying to organize my stuff to revive/revise my RR, and I have over 200 pictures ! I have been chastising myself for not taking enough pics, and wow, I had no idea that I had snapped so many !

Steve.

Last summer, on the way back down from Deadhorse . I knew where a couple of the good paved spots were , and took my 1150 up to 100 mph , just to say I did it on the haul road !!

Right by Franklin Bluffs , I believe ?

Childish , yes I agree .......just one of those things ya gotta do !

Enjoy it man - that is a beautiful trip .

I loved every minute of it ( cept for the skeeters) !!

here we go

Launch time, Wednesday July 2nd 2014; NH to Horizons Unlimited weekend in Grant Colorado by way of New Orleans and the Ozarks. It is all North from there.. I can't think of a better way to start an adventure than with a bunch of adventure motorcyclists.

Hey Doofus

Nice of you to set up this blog - what a great idea you had!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keep us posted. I told you sister you were in Virginia and she says "he's going to Alaska, whats he doing in virginia."

I guess geography and communication was never a strong suit within the D'auteiul clan.

Hope all is well, and we pray that God keeps you safe and spiritually vibrant and alert.

Uncle Mike
