Dempster, Dalton, and Denali
« on: July 27, 2011, 03:46:57 pm »
Dempster, Dalton ,Denali That is the plan for the next 24 days.
 
 The new Super Tenere will be here waiting for me when I get home. My dealer told me today that it is in Chicago 300 miles away today and there is nothing I can do to get it here. I’ll write a ride report when I get home but not being on my Tenere I doubt if I read it myself. Landon has a SPOT and I’ll post the web site here . I hope to post a picture on here when I get a chance to. I would like to ride with some of them Tenere riders in Whitehorse up the South Canal when we get there.  Have fun riding your new Tenere’s guys, only a week away.   http://www.spotadventures.com/user/profile/?user_id=74688 
This story starts back when I first heard about the Super Tenere coming to this country.  I told my son and a friend, Troy, that if I order one of these things we are going to Alaska.  Well, a couple weeks had gone by and they had both bought adventure bikes, so I was committed to ordering the Super Tenere.  Then a couple weeks later I stopped by Landon's house on the way to Iowa City and told him 3 of us were going to Alaska on bikes.  A short time later he calls me up and asks is this really going to happen.  I said well I don't have a bike yet but we are going to go, Troy and Eric have already bought adventure bikes.  Landon ended up buying a 650 Wee and said he is in on for the ride.  Well, as the story goes time is getting closer and Yamaha was saying November delivery so I had to come up with a bike.  I bought a 650 Wee with less than 10,000 miles on it and thought it was a great bike until I test rode the Super Tenere in Kansas City.  WOW!!! now that is an adventure bike.  About 3 weeks ago Troy threw a chain on his Vstrom and totalled the cases.  Within a week he had another Vstrom and has it all ready to go.  I think it is white but I haven't even seen his new bike. 

Landon, Troy, and Scott (Scott is Troy's 12 year old son) left this afternoon and according to Landon's SPOT they are getting close to the Minnesota border.  When Eric gets off work in a little while him and I are going to start the chase and try to run them down within the next 2 days.  Troy says he is going to ride casually, yeah right.  Troy is wide open all the time.  So this is the start of the 2011 Alaska Ride for 5 friends on 4 bikes.

This is Eric's bike [My son]


This is the bike I'll be on for the trip.

Well here it is 2:30 Thursday morning and we haven't left home yet.  Eric had to work late so we didn't get taken off last night.  My XT is due to come into the dealer Friday.  That means after 8 months of waiting for this bike to ride on this trip I am missing it by 1 day.  Anyway, Troy, Scott, and Landon are about 500 miles ahead of us so we better get the wheels a spinning.  By the way did I mention I am the luckiest guy in the world.  I have the 2 nicest kids you could possibly have.  They go everywhere with me, except Joey stoled Emily's heart away (luckily only 40 miles away).  They have been my 2 best friends next to Michelle and Eric still wants to go with me everywhere I go.   Michelle is not going because of too many bears and she doesn't like the Wee, so next year we will be on the Tenere.

Wait for the S10, you will ride quicker and much more comfortably.  shoot me a e-mail innadventure@klondiker.com or cell 867 332-5029 when you are near Whitehorse.  I will be limited to w/end riding, just got back to work today after a 4 month leave!!

Hello everyone,  This is Michelle (Steve's wife).  Just wanted to give an update.  The guys left Thursday morning about 3:00 a.m.  If you are following their Spot they hit Dawson Creek this morning and are headed to Watson's Lake.  Finally getting off the interstates and into some scenic country.  I just called the Yamaha dealer this morning and Steve's Super T was delivered there Friday morning,  Of course 1 day after they took off on their trip.   ::)  Guess I'll have to give him that news the next time he checks in.   Anyway, it will be waiting for him when he gets back.  Can't wait to uncrate it and go for a ride!!!!

Hey, If any of the Yukon Tenere crew is watching the spot track these guys will be hitting the south canol some time tomorrow. I will be watching their progress tomorrow and heading ndown to the South Canol to say hello. I am about an hour away from the start of the Canol. They are currently off the highway at Smith River, I am sure they are setting up camp. Probably 5 hours from the Canol. 8)

Just wanted to let anyone know that is watching this trip with the Spot that Steve, my son, and Troy and his son are no longer riding with Landon who has the Spot.  When they got up this morning Landon wanted to ride a more leisurely day to Whitehorse.  I don't know if they will catch back up together or not, I hope so as it has been fun watching their progress,  But anyway just wanted to let everyone know.  If by chance they do find each other again I'll let you know.  I believe the guys were thinking about riding the Dempster highway to Inuvik so I presume that is the direction they will head after the South Canal.  Thanks, Michelle

Hooked up with Steve and crew in Teslin Yukon. These guys are movin ???rolled out of Teslin doing about 60 over the limit :o headed for Johnson's Crossing and the South Canol. These fellows are serious mile munchers. Rode up the South Canol a ways with them and then turned around and headed home. Great bunch, wish I could have continued on with them... would have been tons of fun 8)

I stuck my finger in a tank full of rainbow trout and kokanee salmon.    Not really the same.   R

Hi everyone   finally got a chance....   to get on the  web   I just wanted to give you an update    first i want to say thanks to everyone that fallowed us around.  If you think we are not making much progress  that is true but we are riding all the time   The spot is with Landon and he can't do the offroad good stufff and I woud'nt ask him to. You can't ride out of your ability up here or you will get hurt. We are in Fairbanks and changed oil at the Yam shop.
