10 years ago this month (July 2006) several of us rode to Alaska. Friend shot this of us on our 2002 Illusion Blue Wing.

An awesome trip - spent 49 days on the road...! Getting too old to attempt it now!

 

The wife shot a lot of photos from her seat!

Continued...

 

Stopped by to see Santa at the North Pole... he came out of the Santa house and wanted to see how a Wing felt instead of a sleigh. He immediately jumped on mine...

Fantastic photos.  I depart NJ for Alaska on 01 July.  Your photos really heightened my anticipation.

an awesome trip, and great photos of your 2006 trip.

 

I would like to be able to do that, but at 74 I doubt that I ever again ride long distances away from camp/home.

 

when the temps reach 85* I am done, I have to find an air conditioner.... so that means leave at day break, and ride until about noon and park the bike, and get under the a/c.

 

this little incident destroyed my hypothalmus gland, and that ended my body being able to cope with high temps.
