Here I am with ADVers BIpsen and ADV Rx ready to head out.


Caught up with Kim and clan and had a bite to eat at Sheep Mt Lodge.


Another great night with friends around the campfire at Eagle's Claw in Tok.


Always great food at Chicken. Also enjoyed the $5000 upgrade Susan did to the outhouses at the behest of the tour companies.


Every D2D means the Gold Rush in Dawson will be VERY full of motorcycles!


Went up to the Midnight Dome to hang with about 100 locals celebrating Solstice.
Thank you Doug for letting us borrow the van to take a load of girls up.


Had a few other ADVer's up there as well. Good times.


It's quite the annual celebration! First time I'd actually been in Dawson for the Solstice.


Anchoragite and ADVer Wendella, aka Whitney, and her trusty KLR that she rode to TX and back for her 2nd D2D.


Yours truly and my trusty steed.


Other than a cloud burst at Slana, had great weather most the way back.
Around 10am I went to the front of a long line because a ferry worker said "they wanted a few bikes up front to wedge in the corners."
Thank you very much. Works for me! And then was very surprised to have NO line at the Border when I arrived. Again, lucky me!
Another ADVer said it took over 1/2 an hour to get thru the Border because the line was so long when he arrived 15min before they opened.



Thanks again to everyone for sharing a wonderful few days! Till next time, Mark H.

Another Great Non-@#$%-Rally

The two extra days spent in Dawson City allowed sight-seeing for the first time, including a couple of rides to the Dome. Won't be the last time that spot is visited by this rider, if all goes well. The view from there is spectacular.

Upriver -


Downriver -


Downtown -


More to come.

I'm rooting for the clown. Pirates are scary.



How many ADVr's does it take to film a rainbow?

Had a nice trip over to Dawson, with just a minor amount of rain shortly after clearing customs. Seeing some other dualsports at Chicken, it was necessary to park the Wingsport near them for a "family photo".


Then on down the nice, dry road.


Enjoying the extra days to wander around the town, a short walk in the sun down to the ferry "dock", such as it is, led to a ride back and forth across the river.






The new venue for the banquet provided a lot more elbow room, and with the crowd that showed up, it was certainly welcome.


Then it was time for the games.












All the activity holds the bystanders attention -






And you thought riding in a blinding fog was difficult!


Time to assemble for the group photos, folks.


A large cloud formation provided an attractive addition to the evening sky as the sun slid to the horizon.

New stickers!

Not as cool as two decades, or even double digits like some people I know... But six years in a row is still pretty cool, I think.


Finally made the run up the Dalton that I have been wanting to do for many years. I rode up there before D2D and the weather was great!



Really cool of Twisted Throttle to support D2D again. *It makes me want to buy stuff out of their catalog; and when I do, I'll be sure to let them know. *I liked this unique little reflective sticker that they gave us.


Nick, the Beemer tech at Trails End, took the time to have a look at my bike and provide advice when I was having throttle issues on my way up towards the Dalton. *So I'll happily rock the sticker.


Dredge number 4, aka poker run stop number 2, is going to be celebrating 100 years and gave us D2D'ers this neat sticker


I did some pre-recon for the recon riders on the Denali highway and made sure it was clear for the recon crew to sweep through a day later; I also did some northern recon on the Dalton and made sure the riders up there were pointed the right direction to Dawson... So I was given this special edition little beauty:


Some new pins for Chicken, Arctic Circle, Prudhoe, and Dawson City:


And finally, the coolest thing of all:


I consider this a big honor and I will proudly display it under my plate. Thanks guys, I really appreciate it.

These are just my cell phone pics, dropped my film off last night so hopefully I'll have something interesting tomorrow.

Some of the riff raff filtering in through Tok Thursday morning.




The crazy German hotel bus that was parked in Gold Rush


80's cover band at the bar next to the ice cream shop... she was good, the rest.... not so much


Friday morning




My mini bike


On top of the dome














Last obstacle course




buddy Christ is...


My favorite bike, love seeing Ducs out being ridden hard and proper


Fun and Games downtown

















Getting kicked out of Dawson en masse by the ferry folk


far too much of this past Tok


But then Denali came out to play





And the little bike earned its sticker


Had a blast, can't wait to make it back to Dawson again.
