Liebchen here...

I suppose since I was on this ride as well I should put in my 2 cents. I absolutely LOVE my bike! What I don't love is the first picture Izzy posted of me... um, padded motorcycle pants don't do a girl any favors that's for sure. But I digress. The trip was awesome and I'm quite proud of the fact I took my bike on both a 4-wheeler trail and mining road. I do believe I am ready for the long haul up and over the Top of the World highway and on to Dawson City. Counting down the days in fact. (And that would be 5.)

There are no bad roads... just bad bikes.

Wow

So here is on proud biker..We,as in she went down a fourweeler trail. Even after i tried to talk here out of it She did great, didn't drop it or anything.



This is a side road that we decided to explore.It goes up vadez creek to the mines..


and of course a Caribou


This is looking up the headwaters of the big Susitna. I've been all over these valleys with a snowmachine but its always nice to see them in the summer..


And thats pretty much it we got back on the pavment and ate lunch on the way home..

It was about 600 miles..We were worn out when we got home but Liebchen is Excited for Dawson City next week.(I am really Excited) I think I've Created A MONSTER

I disagree. Girls always look great in riding gear.
