Triumph Tiger 800 Jesse Luggage & more

Gave the Jesse luggage we used on our 2011 Alaska Summer Adventure a bath today.  Why? Because Al Jesse has one of his PR guys working with us to eventually sell these panniers and Al has kindly offered to donate the money raised to our charity ACT-Autism Community Training.  Below is ACT’s thanks back in September 2011.

Thanks to Cheryl and Leslie

On August 12th, Cheryl Letkeman and Leslie Sofarelli returned from their momentous Adventure to Alaska. Their 45 day trip took them from Maple Ridge north through BC, into the Yukon and up to Alaska’s Arctic Circle to help collect donations for ACT-Autism Community Training. Their amazing efforts have helped to raise over $3,000 and bring awareness of our organization to remote communities in Northern BC. We extend our deepest gratitude to Cheryl and Leslie for all of their hard work.

ACT-Autism Community Training followed Cheryl and Leslie’s Adventure to Alaska on our Facebook page and has posted their Blog for people to view their fantastic photos and stories. If you have not yet checked out their adventure visit

We will hopefully have more info on what Al has planned next week.  Just sent his team the pictures.  More to come.

While on call today and since Cheryl had to work I just hung around the house doing chores.  Our gardens are blooming, the dogs enjoyed the sun as it was the best day of the Spring so far and got to look at my bike, not ride.  Can’t really go to far or ride the bike while being attached to a pager.  Maybe when I get more experienced I will venture out but for now I stay in the car or just hang around. 

Here are some pics from Leslie’s day with the dogs and the Jesse Luggage!  🙂

Sierra is the big dog and is 10, Xander little monster and is 12 and finally Cruizer our Beagle is 8.  What a zoo!

  1. The terraced gardens in the backyard are stunning!! Did you guys build those walls and do the plantings?? The guys look like they are enjoying the day…ball just a-lying there! We’re chillin’ thank you!
    So, what cases do you or will you be carrying on the F798’s if Jesses are going?
    Were you able to sell Traverse suits?
    Lovely looking home you two and in a very good spot in our beautiful country!

  2. On the right side of the top case, right of Adventure Cycleworks sticker is a green toad, is that from Toad River, B.C.?

  3. July 10, 1995, my wife, a friend and I spent the night at Toad River. We had flown my 1955 Piper Tri-Pacer up to Watson’s Lake, YT from Kankakee, IL. trying to get to Alaska. Having bypassed the Alaska highway on the way up, I wanted to “fly the highway” on the way back. Just a little southeast of Toad River is Summit Point, highest point on the highway, and where the clouds came down to the ground. We had to return to Toad River to wait for flyable weather. Somewhere in this mess I call home is a photo my friend took of me gassing the airplane at the pumps there, Taxied off the airport, on the highway a short distance, and back to the airport to tie down for the night. People in motorhomes seemed a little surprised, but the locals were accustomed to it.
