Big Boys Bike Ride North

Ken is ready to ride. The only thing missing on the back of his KTM this trip is me! They say a picture is worth a thousand words and the pictures will have to do as I was not on this ride to document the events. Enjoy the photos, the North truly is a beautiful place to visit.

The boys on the ride, Ken, Shaun, Kenny D and Dan

You can't roller skate in a buffalo herd!

The sign says it all.

The U.S. border let us thru without passports to complete the loop.

Mama Grizzly on the side of the road had two cubs as well.

The North Canol Road

The biggest black wolf any of us had ever seen.

Trucks left on the road during the war.

A few obstacles on the road.

Old mine site. Many more in the hills.

8200kms in 15 days. No problems as the big KTMs prooved their toughness again! Dawson City was a 2 day rest so the boys partied it up with 140 other adventure riders on the Dust to Dawson annual ride. Love the land of the midnight sun! Weather was great with 30 degree temperatures and only a few hours of rain. Still didn't have time to ride to Inuvik so will have to do it with Heather next time. Retired my faithful 2004 950 after the trip as saw a shiney new black one to take her place!
