KE100 n KLR650 Key West to Deadhorse and back

HI!!! Well, a few days till we leave on Monday. First leg from Merritt Island, Fl. to Key West, Fl.

Planning since November 2014. Our ride should be about 12,000 miles.

I am 53 (birthday on June 25th), my son is 19 and riding the KLR.

If the timing is right we are going to the gathering at Dawson City on the 18th.

Hope you like our report as we file it.

Is this ride going to be a Iron Butt point to point or a bucket list ride ?

Makes no difference to me I'm in regardless & just because its Alaska.

gotta see this

Big plan for a small bike. Had a KE100 for a while and loved it. Would like to see this trip succeed.

Well, I'm trying to do the UCC on the smallest engined bike yet. A Honda 125cc did it in 05 or around then.

It is also to spend some fun time with my son. I don't have a bucket list yet but I guess I should write one down.

I like the preparations of things like this although, with 5 days to go, I am way over them. Sure there are things I missed but when the time has come to leave I guess you just go. Things I did not think about will show up and we can deal with them as we go.

What sort of items are you taking with you as far as replacement parts? I would recommend an extra piston kit. A top end rebuild is about a 30 minute job on that bike if you're not in a hurry!
