The June/August saga of making it from Reno, NV to Deadhorse and back was completed on 27AUG. Long story but the clutch failed in the Yukon in June but I made it to Fairbanks. The HD/BMW, etc. dealer in Fairbanks wouldn't order parts until they saw the bike even though I agreed to buy the parts, etc. Thus a one day job became a ten day job as there is no overnight service to Fairbanks, they didn't order all the parts they needed and then we were into the 4th of July weekend. I flew home as I had other commitments. Flew back to Fairbanks on 17AUG. Planned to do a 4 day up and back to Deadhorse. Left at 05:30 on 18AUG. Was in Coldfoot for lunch at 11:30 then banged it out to Deadhorse arriving at 17:00. Perfect road conditions, except where they were doing repairs. Flew along at 60 to 75mph the entire way. Came back to Fairbanks on the 19th and was there in time for dinner with friends Karen and Jack.
