I'll need new tires before the trip is over so I had called this place previous to leaving home. They had a set of Metz Tourances waiting for me. Not only that, but they let Beverly mail the controller to them and held it for me even though they wouldn't make a dime on it, nice dealer!
Then I visited the cultural center to learn more about the road to Deadhorse. What I learned is that the road is still muddy, flooded in spots, and "you'll be OK, just watch for the icy places..."
"Thanks" I said, "I'm on a motorcycle." "Ohhh..." she replied, "Make sure you ride slow.."
On the way back to my lodging I stop at the North Pole.
Back on Eielson AFB where I'm staying.
Then I'm off for a day ride the next morning - Destination; Minto, a tiny spot I saw on my map.
But first a stop for a photo of the famous pipeline.
Tomorrow I ride to Coldfoot and on to Deadhorse on Saturday
