Alaska trip equipment evaluation
Just completed a 8700 mile round trip from Northern MN to Alaska. I have a 2011 Wee which was trouble free. I averaged 54.99 miles per gallon. Givi windshield and Sargent seat were very good too. Mounted K60 Scouts before trip and performed excellently. Ran through many days of rain with no drama from tires. They are noisy for sure but you get used to it. Handeled the dirt and mud etc.. Hyde Racing protector did a good job. Had two Ortlieb rack packs(89) liter each. One for camping gear and one for clothes. Strapped one on the larger rack (purchased off Ebay) on top of RotoPak gas container. The other I Rok strapped on the seat behind me, worked perfectly. Olympia AST2 jacket was good, Tourmaster Caliper pants were not. Claim to be waterproof, nope. For the price should be false advertising. Frogg Toggs to the rescue. Boots were not waterproof as advertised either. MotoCentric boot covers to the rescue. The Toggs and boot covers are good to use on the Dalton, keeps mud dust etc.. off your clothes, much easier to clean them. Had a Nemo Morpheous tent which is fantastic, not poles to mess with. If any questions would be glad to answer if I can. Will put camping gear and things I no longer need on the For Sale area.
