looking for NJ riders that are sick of NJ and want to ride to sunny Alaska

Hello inmates, whats up?

Me and wifey are hoping to get a V-bike this spring and ride it - like its stolen - to Alaska and back. July the 4 is the aprox date we wanna get out of dodge. We have 4 weeks, no time for BS and off-course we'll be broke, so it should be a good trip. We're planning to haul ass - superslabs be damned - to the first mountains we see, and then slow down.

As for the bike I plan to steal a V-deal somewhere, and not worry much about farkles, mods, this or that. Back in EU I had Mongolia-ready 650, but I only made it to Croatia when I got present job and had to move to good ole Gerzee. I heard Alaska has some nice vistas, plus the winters are warmer than here, so we gonna give it a go. I've been moving every single year, sometimes btw continents, and I travel like a bible salesman so I'm used to the life out of a bag. I like things simple and stupid - like me.

I'm a badass with a nasty temper and only rides longer than 10h puts me back in the good mood, but wifey is very hot so we should be a good company. Any others with similar brain damage want to join?

Alaska winters are far from warm.

Perhaps you would have had more luck if you'd posted a picture of your wife rather than someone else's bike...??? :mrgreen:
