check out this video of my solo trip this past spring. Rode my 1996 R 1100RT .. it's 24min , so crack a beer and enjoy !!
comments welcome, mundo
Kept my interest and it gave the feeling from your narrative and clips of what it was like and the music is great.
One of the better documentaries I've seen about an alaskan run.
Hey Mundo, thanks for taking us along. I hope to make the same trip someday. The beauty of the northwest is amazing. Your film made it look so inviting. Thank you.

If one cannot command attention by one's admirable qualities one can at least be a nuisance
I give you a 12 out of 10
I was either just before you or just after you. I was probably on the Dalton on June 2-4. I travelled many of the same roads - your sound track was first rate.
The 'wetting' of the road is with calcium chloride - after the slop sets up, it becomes hard and almost dust free. I agree though - riding in fresh slop is not for the faint of heart.
I would have been the guy with the Yellow 1150GS (a slightly better bike on the gravel/mud regions).
Cheers, and very well done.
most excellent work. thanks!
Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

Thanks well done
I enjoyed your video - great job of capturing the flavor of the ride. I made a similar trip in June/July 2007 - I rode solo from California to Montana where I met up with a buddy and we rode together to Fairbanks via the Cassiar Hwy. We split up for 5 days and I rode solo to Prudhoe Bay. I joined up with my buddy again in Talkeetna, AK and we rode together to TOK where we split up again. My buddy then caught a ferry at Haines and I continued home via Chicken, Dawson City and the Alaskan Hwy. I posted my journey HERE.

What a great film. That was the fastest 24 minutes in my life. Really enjoyed it
I want to go!
A question I have is what equipment did you use to shoot the video and pictures?
