    Hey Roy,

    I'm going to be down in the Skagway/Haines area during the week following the 4th of July. If you are going all the way to Anchorage, you are welcome to join up with me and a couple of my buddies for that portion of your trip.

    If you do make all the the to Anchorage and need some wrenching space and a table lift...I have the lift and lots of room.

    PM me if you have questions.

    Hope your battery is up to it.

    They don't sell roadmaps where you live?

    Have a safe and enjoyable trip.

    Where did you get that headphone amp? I've been looking for something like that.

    There are lots of options for amplifiers. I use a Mix It unit and am real happy with it. You might want to check out CycleGadgets or Aerostich.

    The headphone amp is from a fellow up in Canada (who likes Americans!). He just introduced a version specifically for motorcycles with a remote volume control and powered by 12V instead of batteries. He is an amazing guy to do business with.
    Check him out at www.electric-avenues.com

    So do I Roy...you just went off on a tangent. I was only poking fun at all the gadgetry....same goes for them fishing rigs that I see so often. As Veg said, "is there a motorcycle under all that gadgetry?" How did we ever get by in the past?
