Awesome! Fantastic!

I want to do that ride.
Perhaps next summer...

It's so much closer than Alaska for me.

This here report is a frontal assault on the American West's self-esteem. For generations now, we Westerners have been telling the world that "West is Best."

Then came Dockingpilot, et al -- and proof of what we're missing out on.

This is an amazing journey, put together by a master planner and storyteller.

Outstanding work DP and team. Wish I coulda been there.

Frank your excellent ride report has been a real eyepopper! I never suspected so much wilderness and natural beauty in this part of the US and New Brunswick. zthe fall colors were just astounding...and of course once again you have left me in total envy. Thankyou for sharing your experiences with all of us. I truly enjoyed every minute of it...and I can only imagine what it must have been like to experience this in the first person...

Thanks for the most excellent ride report DP and gang. Went through it all in one sitting. By the way Frank...Happy Belated Birthday.

Also, thanks for helping me out with the SE when I got stranded in Arkansas on our little TAT trip that was going down a week or so ahead of you guys. Couldn't log on while stranded in Ark, but did have your phone number and was able to source a Facet the same day. A big thanks Bro.

Again, thanks for lettin us ride along with you and the hosers.

Hey Frank! Life is good, cold but good. Just waiting for the lakes and rivers to freeze so we can start the second riding season

Hope all is well, Merry Christmas!

Great ride. I'm looking that way maybe next summer.

I saw in your report , but can't find it now, that you up graded the suspension on the 800GS. What exactly did you do ? I'm looking to get an 800GS and the suspension seems to be a common complaint after reading other post.

Only a trip like this can be pulled off by a man who carrys a trail saw with him... I saw it

Thanks for the report
I got to talk to you the next time I see you (polar bear run or chatterbox)
800GS or 1200GSA.....Could a 1200GSA pull off the roads you were on or is it too Heavy
