Traveller calling AK

Howdy ADVRiders,

My 3 month trip has brought me to sunny AK :) I am in Seward right now, will spend tomorrow monday still in here south.

I need to get soem stuff done on my 1150GS ADV, like 24k service. I would love to do oils, and most of the stuff by myself if I can find someone friendly enough to provide me with surroundings to do that.

Valves and TB...well, if there is someone either in Anchorage or Fairbanks with tools and skills and good will (I'll buy the beer ;)) who would show me how to do the valves, I am very willing to learn.

OR, which dealer should I go to to get these things done?

All the hellp and tips are wellcome...also, if any of you AK riders wanna hook up for stories and maybe lunch/dinner/coffee let me know...I am all for meeting you guys.

I plan to hang around until the next sunday at least...somewhere around here.

Jussi

And if you want to get in a side trip, Petersville road, great views of Denali! We seem to be thinking Sunday....Sunday....Sunday.

Jusv did in fact make it to Anchorage. Hacky and I just finished running his valves down in the Sheraton Hotel parking lot. All is well. We had a little lunch and hopefully convinced him to drag his feet a bit and meet a bunch of the Gruvers up in Dawson for D2D. Dropped him off at Barb's shop.
