WOW, really impressive!

Big respect to Sherri Jo, for doing such a daring trip, learning so fast and well, and living up to all challenges on the road (or off the road, to be more precise)!

I have just one curiosity, more of a 'zoo-technical' one, how did you manage to keep the bears away when you camped on the abandoned part of the old summer road?

i never heard of any motorcyclists having problems with bears there (along old summer road) ... they are not such a big risk unless you are near the coastal rivers of Magadan Oblast.

Really late to the party! Over the last week I have read this report...all I can do is add my congratulations and admiration with all the others that have posted.

I really, really enjoyed reading this report.

Wait until 400+ pounds of black bear lunges out of the woods in front of you - close enough that I wiped his ass with my knee on the way by!

I've camped a couple weeks in Alaska and northern Canada where you had better be aware of the bears. Saw lots of black bear and grizzly's and didn't have any trouble, but I wasn't cooking any bacon in the morning in camp either, didn't want any uninvited guests..........

Walter-dude, you tell one hell of a story, and now this

If you ever find yourself in south Louisiana-well, you're welcome in my house anytime for a bed, food, tools, laundry-but you'd better stay out of Ms. Dirty's secret "crafts nook".

Thanks for taking us along for the ride. Can't wait to see that happened to the bike.

Dirty
