I just got a link to this from the LDRider list.

Great video and commentary. Makes me want to go back again!

And they got to meet and ride with Higdon on the way to Deadhorse.

Bob was on his RTW Honda Nighthawk.

The guys Bob rode with were mightily impressed that such an "old guy" even tried to do the Deadhorse run. I wonder if Bob ever mentioned to them that he'd ridden that same Nighthawk across Siberia.

Yes he did. We had many long discussions in Wiseman and shared many stories. Bob is a very inspiring person to many people and I'm proud I rode with him!

Pilot road? gotcha. Did you feel like they had enough grip? Watching video...how many total miles?

Yes, the Pilot Road. 9100 miles round trip. Grip was acceptable but I would recommend something more off-roady for Dalton :)

Cool. I've heard a lot of Bob stories, some straight from Bob, and they're all well worth listening to.

By the way, great video.
