Cool! Got a new ride to break in, or are you just looking to challenge the character that pulled this off:



I remember thinking last time that going to Homer for the 1500 would be a good idea. . . but dang. By the time I made it back to Anchorage all I wanted to do was have a beer and go to bed. . . .

but this time . . .

Justin, you in? The ride prep at SRH worked out pretty good last time. Even got TomS out of the cave.

Yeah, must have lost the other picture of the cop in my rearview just outside of Glenellen.



No new ride this year, but perhaps a new Olin in the back to break in, And a bad case of "I wish winter would end!"

Thumb Me too, me too!

I had a blast last time with ADVBMR, akkurt and jusinconsistent! Like Justin, I never submitted the paperwork - I've still got it all in a ziplock with my shop manuals... All I can say is "badges?!, I don't need no steenkin' badges!!"

Anyway, would love to do the trip again. I didn't take a layover @ Fairbanks last time, just kept riding close to the speed limit with short breaks here and there and if memory serves I believe I made it with about 2 hours to spare.

[edit]
Here's the 2011 Iditabutt thread for reference.

Yep, just checked my time from that run.

Out 10:12 5/21/11
In 8:06 5/22/11

[/edit]

May 19th is the Gold Nugget and I've volunteered to provide a ride for a pillion on the bike course. GIven the way winter is lingering on, it might be wise to bump the date out a bit further.

He just wanted a contribution to the trooper ball, or something like that.

I'm in, but somebody else has to take the ticket this time, or I am going to need a lawyer. (anybody know one?)

May 18th does seem a little ambitious, but I can probably make it happen.

800 huh? your still looking for a bike as reliable, comfortable, consistent, and fast as your old red 1100.

Definitely in!

+1 on a meeting at Spenard Road House to nail down details. Maybe instead of gift cards for the volunteer witnesses after the fact they can join the group for planning?

Awesome! Yes, the speed limit with frequent short breaks has to be the ideal approach. No rest stop in Fairbanks for me this time.

Did you find another brand new "used" motorcycle to break in? What do you think you will be riding this time?
