Whittier, Alaska, driving the longest combined vehicle-railroad tunnel in North America!
Love this picture of Cheryl on the McCarthy – Kennicott Pedestrian bridge where bikes are allowed to ride over….very hippy dippy area in Alaska!
We took the BMW R1200GS, Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere, Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 and KTM 990 Adventure on an off-road adventure and to really test their abilities, we enlisted Stan Watt, who finished 34th in this year’s Dakar Rally.

Once again a rider has really been able to capture via his video just what ADV riding is all about. I am not sure we would ever be able to just ride pavement ever…well, we might have to when we get older…
Everyday I see the majority of bikes being cruisers on the road. When we both see an ADV bike there is an instantaneous instinct to want to wave and if they are loaded, Leslie wants to catch up with them and find out where they are going and where they have been. That is the ADV way for us. Just seems that ADV riders have more stories about the elements, the terrain, where their GPS took them only to find a gate closed on a dirt road. We love camping stories and where other riders found the “best” spot. We like to see at times how long we can go before we see people….finding that route that takes you where you can see things that a cruiser or car won’t let you is how we see it.
Have a peek…you will love this video too.
Heading into a very rainy Atigun Pass, Summer 2011. We left for 44 days last year on June 29th. A part of me feels a little sad that we are not leaving this year for a similar trip. We would go back to Alaska in a heart beat and one day will return…some reflective pictures to remind us of the rain we battled!

I got a message from one our readers on FB and he asked about how we charged our phones while on our trip riding the Triumph Tigers. The answer is really easy and I thought I would share what works for us and perhaps might assist anyone looking for a charge while out on the road.
Both the BMW and Triumph bikes have a stock powerlet plug, looks like this
This socket mounts on the top of a panel providing a low clearance installation. Unlike cigarette sockets these Powersport Standard Connectors are smaller in size, rated at 15 amps. Continue reading

The plan was simple; I was going to ride from Long Beach New York to Long Beach Los Angeles, cheaply and alone. I wanted to prove that you didn’t need the latest bike or accessories in able to have an adventure of a lifetime and of course, do it with the freedom of 2 wheels. I was also going to try and raise some money for ‘Riders for Health’, if I could achieve all that while discovering parts of America that would be more than wonderful.
Just to make it a bit more interesting, mainly for myself, I threw in a few rules; just to make me suffer in one way or another. These were, buy a bike for $200 or less and ride it across the US using only normal roads, no Interstate or Highways. Sleep in a tent every night, use only a small map, no sat navigation, can’t shave or shower until the journey is complete and only buy fuel and food. Whatever the bike needed would have to come out of the $200 budget… if I hadn’t spent it all in one go that is…
