So I was thumbing through "Bike" magazine last night and came upon the review for this Buell Super TT. I couldn't believe it! This is pretty close to the same set-up my 919 is going to have for my trip to Alaska. Pretty sweet idea, if I do say so myself...
I was talking more about the way it is set-up, but point taken.
I'm actually trying to work out a trip for the summer of 2009 with my dad and hopefully my brother. I plan on setting up the 919 with the Pirelli syncs, a belly pan, and a few other pieces of equipment to make it a little more protected on the way there. I plan I going to the Arctic Ocean, so I will need a little bit of lower fairing protection and a decent windshield.
If you read trip reports on people who have done it, it's really tough on any bike you take. Some swear by lighter bikes (read 650 dual sports) and some on the heavier well put together beef. Route choice and time of year seem to play into it alot. You can apparently find yourself on mud slimed roads, rocks thrown at you from bikes ahead, etc.
A posting about a 9er making the trip would be fantastic.
