One other thing I forgot to mention about fly and ride. If there is trouble with the bike and your not above the Artic Circle, Keith will help you out. At least if you rent the bike from him, which I can recomend from experience. We had a great time last spring on Keith's bikes. He'll pick you up at the airport and see you get back for your return flight.

Hi Keith

Ok this is getting a little crazy, imagine that! I thought I might be able to do it in the time between semesters, but upon farther review, ain’t happin’. No problem I graduate in ’07 so the time between now and then we allow me to save some cash, that way I’ll be able to take my time (within reason) and look around a little, plus that will put me at 40 and that would be a great birthday present to myself. Something about flying then renting that I don’t like, not my bike so it won’t be the same. Does that make sense?

GMG, sure it makes sense. Besides, you probably wouldn't like the R1200GS anyway

Keep those grades up!!

Another Idea

How about a fly, buy, ride, ship (or sell) package.

you can fly to Anchorage, buy my 02 GS (I in turn would buy a 1200), you can tour all you want on your bike (even though we will all call it AKriders old bike),and than ship it home, ride it home, or sell it before you leave.

The possibilities are endless.

If he wouldn't have crashed at the beginning of that feat, he would have made it in 99 hours. Barb

I heard he was pretty lucky in that crash, went tumbling through the tundra up aroung Coldfoot if I remember right. He was a big topic of discussion around here last summer.
