It gets surprising cold up there but it can also be rather warm.

Thanks. Lots of layers..... on the list. Since I dont have heated grips or anything maybe I will bring a bunch of those chemical hand heaters.

I'd bring two pairs of gloves. Winter gloves and something for warm weather / dual-sport.

Heated grips

Brian,

Maybe just invest in some heated grips. I have them on my Dakar
and my Husky. Stock on the Dakar, aftermarket on the Husky.
You can get aftermarkets for less than $50, install in less than an hour.

Heck buy some and install them at the rally, we can have a "How to"
seminar!

That might be a good idea. I've been looking at heated gloves and nothing strikes my fancy. There are some heated liners that look nice but have to have some type of controller, but I guess heated grips would require wiring in some kind of acc. circuit anyway. If I decide to go with grips I will save them for a Rally Tech Day.....Thanks

I can't believe we're planning a ride this far in advance...
edit: That didn't come out right - what I mean is, I can't believe BigWan and I are committing to a ride this far in advance.
I understand that normal people make plans in advance.

Trials / obstacle course

I was thinking about setting up a trials type skills course using the natural terrain and having a Sunday or late saturday for fun competition. People can watch and or ride and all have a good laugh. What i mean is using our every day dual sport bikes having a marked out (small cones or tape) narrowish course with out putting your foot down ride over a log down the bank and over the rock type thing what do you think? Any interest?

Pics pulled off the web to show the idea






















Not really
