I agree. I have not been so far from civilization as I reckon Hyder AK is.
I have ridden a couple of hundred miles with a gent who rode his Honda
CBR-125 from Key West to Deadhorse at the top of Alaska to Hyder at
the bottom of Alaska and then back to Key West, all in June 2011.
But he had a companion, his friend Charles, on a BMW that has gone
as far as it is from here to the moon, some 400,000 kilometers.
The CBR-125 rider is Bob Munden, a fellow almost 66 now, with
remarkable endurance. He has ridden that 125-cc machine over
1500 miles in one calendar day. That is 1500 miles, not kilometers.
Actually, I think the Wee-Strom is a fine machine to depend on.
I have ridden mine alone to every province in Canada, and my only
problems have been tires: one puncture requiring a plug, and one tire
that I should have replaced before the ride that it did not complete.
