off on a road test of my new Anlas front tire. To Inuvik and back should do it.

thx for that.
Reese it may be time for that coffee.

I was a late add to a group headed to Inuvik and with the bike theoretically prepped for another trip all I needed was tires. Due to availability and time constraints I ended up with a front Anlas Capra 90/90/21 tire and a Kenda K270 rear to be installed in Whitehorse, hopefully..

The inevitable "before" picture.

Mark and myself headed out on time (we waited for you) with a mission of (New) Hazelton 950k away which would set us up well for a rendezvous with the 4 others somewhere along the Cassiar Hwy. the next day. First impression with Anlas was a crazy amount of turn-in compared to the much cheaper and open knobbed K270. The Anlas feels smoother and being a 90/90 was much more planted, at least on pavement.
On a sunny clear sky day in Williams Lake, the klR looks muy pequino compared to the 1190R.

there was a little road construction west of PF'nG thankfully not much stop time.

P1170519.JPG


Arrived In Hazelton to catch the last of the evening sun and grabbed a room at Robbers Roost where all bikers receive a complimentary beverage, thank you very much. Nice folks good rooms and much better than setting camp in the dark.

Our breakfast spot really had their business pick up after they changed the name of the place.

P1170527.JPG


The start of the Stuart Cassiar and the first thousand K's on the Anlas. Most of the center little rubber nubby things are still intact.

P1170530.JPG


P1170561.JPG


The chase was now on to catch the boys, who are it would turn out approx. 20 mins ahead of us, the meet up is Bell II. I have said before that the cassiar is the most scenic hwy in BC and with the exception of the butt ugly hydro towers (which there are zero pictures of), it still is.

P1170598.JPG


The first of two bird hits. ouch.

("pull up Jimmy! pull up!!")

P1170588.JPG


The rider count is now 6 with the meet-up with Roggy Les Jeff and Ryan.
Four long legged kTm's a strom 1000, and Rodney, a bike that Mark keeps saying sounds like it's only running on one cylinder.

Headed north towards Dease Lake on a cool day that was starting to get colder and wetter, we racked up some miles. Up ahead I saw this big guy and just eased the throttle and stayed steady so not to spook the bear as the whole group is just behind me, and the bear stood still. What I didn't see was that Mark had slowed and as the bear posed for a picture, Ryan blasted past between the two and off went the bear.

P11706611.JPG


The day turned south as we went north and as we arrived in Dease Lake for fuel we had just finished passing thru what was trying to be, snow. The layers of clothing and hotted up grips and vests made for an easy decision of staying the night and calling the day a little early.
More than a few riders called it a night here. In this pic. can you spot the sheep in wolfs clothing?

a little closer, whats this, a klr under a cover huddled among the Bmw's.

P1170654.JPG


closer yet. The cover proves to be a "cutequeen" fly from a tent, not a bike cover at all, makes sense now.

P1170648.JPG


Panorama_229.JPG


The weather in the morning was just fine, a bit cloudy but was supposed to soon get better. Taking advantage of the rare moment that I was first to get ready, I scooted off a good jump ahead of the pack that would soon enuf track me down.
Just over a half hour later, the led eyes of the first Austrian dog appeared on the horizon in my mirror. The chase was ending.

P1170662.JPG


yeah, whatever.

P1170700.JPG


the three bears.

P1170709.JPG


no, they certainly are not.

Jeff on his 640.

P1170774.JPG


Roggy kept complaining of spotty tv reception.

P1170783.JPG


Mark figured the bike should be named KilLeR, and later that day it was likely accurate as evidenced by the feathers on the front wheel.

P1170765.JPG


Taking a break to remove layers at Boya lake, last nights planned camp spot. Certainly nice today.

Les, Jeff, Ryan, Mark, Roggy (sp?), Wayne.
and some gas cans.

A short ride later into the Yukon we arrived in Watson Lake and stopped for some photos at the sign forest then lunch.

hmm mixed messages, cookies and obey jesus

at close to 12;30am after Ryan finished getting the gunk out of his fuel tank and unclogging the filter.

P1170968.JPG


the boys headed off to the states for the trip from skagway to haines which left me to change the bald tire for a new one, then make camp for the night.
P1170983.JPG


now thats getting the most out of a tire.

P1170985.JPG


with the day to myself I wandered around to take some tourist pics.

P1180012.JPG


broke camp the next day and was off to Dawson city. Would have another night to myself before the group gets back good time for more pics. This camera crew was shooting for the Yukon Gold "reality" show. It appeared they were lashing an emergency rope to the loader and to the powered barge beached on the shore, though it appeared the barge would actually need assistance to get off of the beach the rope was pure television.

P1180023.JPG



P1180025.JPG


next day was off to the top of the world hwy and over to chicken to meet up with the boys. This road is perfectly named as it really seems to be on the top of the world.

P1180037.JPG



P1180051.JPG


this was the first chance to have the Anlas tire in the dirt and it certainly didn't disappoint. Deliberate attempts to make the front end get out of shape was easily corrected with a little throttle and countersteer.

P1180132.JPG


In case you forget you are in chicken there is a 50 foot tall, chicken.

P1180113.JPG


the chicken creek cafe has really terrific food! and lots of baked goods a nice surprise in the middle of nowhere.

nice to have company with lunch.

after regrouping with the 4 others I arrived back in Dawson first and had the good timing to arrive just after a terrific storm. The streets were flooded and the hail had whitened the hills.

It aint easy being green? the greenest Kawasaki you are likely ever to see.

there was a shuttle running up and down to "the dome" where you could watch the sun fall and kiss the horizon before heading back up again. This is 2am.

the rig that was hauling this hack was a one of homebuilt Hummer looking truck that was actually a toyota with a camper unit built on the back, the bmw hack got its own trailer.

P1180327.JPG


we had heard that the Dempster had been closed due to fires, and this fire was burning just out of town. The best plan was to leave early in the day to get past the fires (presuming the road is open) before they flare up in the midday.

P1180313.JPG


The Merritt boys had a plan to only go as far as Eagle Plains tomorrow with Mark and myself planning on running all the way to Inuvik. Getting an early 730 start we waved bye to the boys, and would not see them again for the duration of the trip. By the time they arrived at the fire zone the road was closed and we were long gone.
Next post the dempster, Keno sign post and more.

thx fer lookin.

I just managed to upload some - something has changed with the forum and the old way of uploading pics to your profile albums doesn't seem to work. I went into the photo gallery, my albums, created an album, and uploaded pics to it. From there you can get the embed code for your post. I am however now having the line feed issues which is new to me.

Using either the album or managing attachments in a post or reply, all I get is this and thing up up the blue question mark just keeps spinning for ever. Photobucket just changed there hosting so I've dumped them and signed up for FREE at https://imgbb.com/ and you can post HTML IMG links directly into a post or reply like this.

You can still add images using raw code. If you bracket the URL with "
" at the back, it will post the image. For example, the image here is posted with "
url] and "
" at the back(without the quotes)

(I'm having no issues uploading pics. to the dsbc site. I'm having total issues with actually replying to a thread at all. Hit any sort of reply button and you go nowhere. I have to reply directly into the quick reply text area, then I can post and have it sent. sentences, spaces.and returns.but.no post dsbc to dsbc, and there's a lot there already. The make an album idea won't work, as the problem remains the same.) ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,And after some closing in on 12,ooo kms. the Anlas Capra continues to surprise me. So much better of an overall tire than I've run in a long time. While you might not want to offroad baja with one, you could take this tire well offroad and as discovered last weekend, airing them down can make a huge difference in the loose stuff. great tire. When a replacement is due, which isn't for awhile it will likely be for a set of Anlas tires. Which might lead to a rear tire report.thx fer lookin, will try later one day to figure the pics again.ok, maybe having the spacing issue now too.

FYI. The run on sentence can be fixed by adding the following after each paragraph minus the spaces.

runon sentences can be fixed with,,,,,,,,,,,,and the adding of all the computer lingo each and every time for a mess of pictures is a non starter for me.,,,,,,,,,,After years of reading of people having loading issues of one thing or another the site always worked fine for me. After thousands of posted pics. and multiple long winded reports, at this point I'm done.,,,,,,,,,,Will still be here to chime in with nonsense here and there and I still (surprisingly) have a brand new Horng Fortune tire for sale.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Later.,,,Wayne

Mr o4 I am glad to see your photos in your posts made it over to the new site, it was something that we talked a lot about as we were told they would be' lost links" and wrong format etc etc. However you will have to learn how to insert pictures all over again for this new software. I know its been a slow process and seems like we are moving at a snail's pace, but we will get there yet

Hey Tom, it's looking like all the hard work of site reformatting is coming together, big job. thx.
I am being told that I can't (yet) upload jpg, which is true, because I can't. yet.
perhaps I need to use a 3rd party host?
