Twas the night before Alaska…..

Well…we got the bikes today and got home around 2:30 PM.  It is now 10:20 PM and we are just about all packed and set up for this trip.  We had to install our top boxes and other little things and then Cheryl the amazing packer fit all our “crap” in our luggage.  This time around compared to last years cross country trip we are bringing more tools and we have back tire tubes, tire irons etc.  On our Beemers the tires are tubeless so we need to be prepared for roadside tire maintenance.

Looks like it might shower or rain tomorrow.  Nothing new for us in the Vancouver area but sure wold be nice if the rain would hold off until we got out of the lower mainland.

Here are some pics from today and tonight’s last minute prep and we are going to try and get some sleep for an early departure from our house around 0830 to be at Western Powersports in Langley by 0900.  So, tomorrow is official we leave and day 1 of our Alaskan Adventure!

Cheryl is fresh in this pic
Mean looking eh?
Some important decals

Cheryl's cousin, Taylor lives with us and will be taking care of our pets and house
Still working
All this fits on our luggage no problem
Cheryl had to grind some of the kick stand foot print to clear the center stand

Superman will be maing the trip with us

That is it until the next post from the road. Hope we can keep this up and add some beautiful pictures and stories.  Out for now and we have 45 days to explore, just the two of us and well, I guess we will find out!

    The weather around Dawson Creek is supposed to be nice for the next week so hopefully it’ll be great travelling weather. Good Luck and can’t wait for our visit.

    You go girls!
    I’ve been following since the beginning and can’t imagine how exciting this must be for the two of you. The bikes look amazing and seem to be ready for the adventure. I’ll be following your trip until the 15th as I am heading out on my own little adventure.
    Take care, ride safe and keep an eye out for some eagles.
