Anybody in Inuvik NWT Canada ?

It will be the Solstice and usaly a few hardy souls are gathered in Inuvik after riding up the Dempster highway. Enjoy the 24 hour sunshine and say hello to Jacob on the 650 BMW from Brooklyn. Ask him how his horn works. Wish I were there.

Yeah, where is everyone! I heard saw one KLR and was told some BMW's are around. I needed to take a hotel despite the price. Weeks of camping and the Dempster have taken its toll on my body and I went straight to bed upon arrival- left everything on the bike and slept for three hours. It worked out okay but that's another story. I'll stay one more night and then must leave this hotel (Eskimo Inn). I'll probably head south tomorrow and would really like to ride the Dempster with someone else this time.

Hi Bill !!!

ps. My horn is giving me the silent treatment after smoking during a rain storm.

Well there are two BMW GS's here, alot of Harvey's, and lots of other bikes. Not sure why no one has been driving around. Will drop by the hotel in the morning if I have time. I was to be down the Dempster by now, but work is holding me back. I you are having coffee in the morning before 08:00 check out the big table, and there may be some bikers there.
