-9 degrees ambient...add a 60 MPH wind then you're at -47. That's frostbite in 5 to 10 minutes.


I've been serious when I've said around here -- I don't ride below 50 to 55 degrees. I can't stand the cold.

That's balls, man... Frozen ones. But still, balls.

LOL, I was just over on the ADV rider board and had a pm answering my question about the front tire on a wing I'd seen a pic of over there. Same set-up and probably the same bike and rider. Thanks ALCAN Rider.

Great pictures
I really enjoy seeing the beauty that God made just for our pleasure.
I probably won't ever be in that area of the world, but this way I still get to enjoy some of the beauty.
THANKS and keep them coming.

Just my curiosity, BUT, why did you choose a wing for the type of riding you appear to do so much?
I love my wing, but I plan to stay on asphalt and nothing but asphalt if I can help it!! I have occasionally been on a well maintained hard packed gravel road, but I don't like it!
I can understand having a wing in Alaska, for certain times and roads; but where you take yours blows my little mind!!!! The extra fuel you carry certainly gives you a lot more range "for when the gas is scarce!"

Great pics!!!!
