[QUOTE=Boulder Ed;18771298]Wow. The easterners can really pack some stuff on their bikes.

I think most of their luggage is empty so they can buy souvenirs to bring home

Have great ride sounds like it will be a good long one. My wife is from Glen Rock. Been down that way few times and was able to ride ride my father in-laws H/D. Man those roads down there are great fun. I would like to know if there is any off roading, two track or single track in that area.
When you get up to Ancorage shoot me an message and I'll see if we can get a ride in.

I can tell you they made it to Sioux Falls SD Sunday evening and Billings MT Monday evening. Today they were planning to cross the border into Alberta. I think they will soon slow the pace and we may hear more from them on here.

Not much single track or off-road, but I can show folks around some interesting gravel/dirt roads in the area. If you ever get over this way, give me a shout.

I will say that tagging is easier with this bunch out of the area.

I love your avatar! What a great design. I collect Kokopellis and have them all over the place at home and in my office area.

Happy trails!

Thanks. I play Native American Style flutes, so Kokopelli is kind of a guiding spirit for me.

You only went one way. We think we may go back so we needed twice as much stuff.
