Alaska Ride 2011: things that get my attention
Today's ride covered 384 miles, with a bit of construction, and a lot of pictures . I passed the campers in the picture half-a-dozen times. The Strom is performing well, and I feel that I am in a unique position to offer an evaluation of it versus the Bandit 1250 on the Alaska Highway. After all, the controls are there; same road, rider, luggage and year bikes. It should be interesting, and will also be done as time allows. Suffice to say, the Bandit wins in the power department, and the Strom is king on the gravel, just what will be needed on the Dalton. Stay tuned.
