Hyder Alaska to New Orleans, La.
I found a map on Google today for all of you (not many really, but I am trying) to see the route graphically. Three and a half days in Canada, the best part depending on the weather, then 6 1/2 days for the run to New Orleans. Many mountains in Montana, Wyoming and Colorado, much of it I covered in a ride from Denver to Glacier NP and back to Denver last year.
Then I finish it off by riding back to Jacksonville after a brief visit to Amerivespa in NOLA.
Five and a half weeks until I trailer the scooter to Tennessee with Mike. Six and a half weeks until I fly to Prince George, BC. for the ride to the start in Hyder.
Parts are ordered for the scooter. I have decided, after we determined that Russ' GT engine problem won't happen to mine, that the cylinder head will go untouched except for a valve adjustment before the ride. The parts are mostly for the transmission freshening, hopefully allowing a bit more top speed.
