Now, if you then decide to do Alaska in 2013, and I'm still physically able, I'll just have to make another trip!

Fair enough?
I am planning on meeting up with 6 and heading north to AK.

Our local BMW shop does this as a yearly ride. They go from south to north. If you go north to south, you will have to leave late so that the north is open, by time you hit the south it is full on summer and 100+

If I were you I would focus on making the Alaska trip as cool and fun filled as possible. Just my $.02 ....


Maybe......

On the other hand, I have a lot more time than the rest of you so I can turn it into a six week trip without any problems.

There is plenty of time to sort it all out.

I also just got an old friend back on two wheels (real nice deal on an R1150 RL in the Flea Market) and he wants to come along too. After the past year and a half dealing with surgeons, I'm up for anything.

RIP Will. I wish his friends and family the best.


In lighter news, I got the grit out of the float valve so the little red fun machine is back in business

Agreed. My mom thought it was hilarious, too.

The sharks were the best part I lost it when the high pitched one started up...
