Bike Washed ...

Last night, I finally got around to washing the bike, changing the oil and filter and installing the laminar lip. I very much dislike using unproven equipment on a trip. Even the smallest things that you haven't tested out can end up being problems, but I've run out of time. The laminar lip is supposed to help with the incredible turbulence the front of this bike generates. That's been my biggest complaint with the K100RS. So Duncan suggested this gadget and I installed it by eye but have ...Read More

Things falling through the crack.

There's so much to do, so many people to see I'm not sure I can get it all done. Then again, given that this is the 21st century, as long as I get my connectivity issues taken care of, I should be able to do some of it from the road. If I'm going to ride the Dalton Highway I should probably get evacuation insurance. A helicopter ride up in that area can end up being very expensive. ...Read More

Prepping continues.

So I'm finally getting the replacement laptop set up. I picked up the biggest drive I could find at Microcenter and am now configuring a workstation environment. As luck would have it, about 15 minutes ago, a small reseller contract for Personal Stock Monitor got signed and will require me or Anatoly to do some code. Figures. Maybe I should go away more often. I went down to REI and picked up some bear repellant. I keep having visions of being on the Dalton Highway broken down waiting to beco ...Read More

The trip plan so far

Cross posted from the forum here: "So everyone keeps telling me to "do what I want" on this trip. That's been challenging 'cause I really don't know "what I want". But then I read an article in Motorcyclist Magazine about the Transit Suit and thought to myself "I wonder if I can make a detour and check it out?". http://www.aerostich.com/aerostich-suits/transit-suit/transit-two-piece-suit.htmlCheck out the photos. They are very detailed. The more I read about this thing the more intrigued I be ...Read More

Trip preparations continue

At this point I feel like I'm falling behind. I intend to take alot of photos and shoot some video. I've received my Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5 to replace the one that heinously gave up the ghost on the Deal's Gap trip. It truly is an excellent, albeit somewhat fragile camera. I also have the GoPro Hero Cam which I can mount on the helmet or the bike. As a backup, I have my old indestructible Olympus Stylus 770W which is water proof, temperature proof, dust proof and drop proof, all of which I have ...Read More

A motorcycle travel log.

This blog will involve a bit of trial and error. This is my first attempt at a blog like this.18 years ago I bought a 1992 BMW K100RS to take on an epic trip. Duncan, Leonard and I traveled by motorcycle from Washington, DC to British Columbia and points north via San Diego where we picked up a fourth member, Dave.Ever since that trip I have been saying I would like to go on a long cross country sport touring and camping trip. Unfortunately, life and circumstances got in the way and I was neve ...Read More
