    Reply to Downs Question

    Hey Downs,

    I have done a lot of Moto Camping. Camped as we rode cross-country and on our trip to Newfoundland. Have good gear, not sure if we have all the gear we would need for Alaska though.

    Fairbanks Storage Question

    [QUOTE=Norwood;849462]Lot of good information here already....

    ..... store as much as you can in Fairbanks and travel lite up the Haul Road....

    Is there a dealer where you can store gear or did you rent a locker at a bus station?

    Did you really get that Mileage out of a set of Heideneu?

    Yes I actually traded out the rear at 20,000k because I got a deal on a tire at Pacific Motorsports, but I am still running the front with 25,000 on it. I am sure I could have easily got another 5k out of the rear. That 20,000 includes a lot of gravel roads including the up and back of the Dempster.

    Will likely switch the front in the spring. My friend on his 1200GS is still running one with 25,000 on the rear but I would not be taking that tire anywhere risky now.
