New taillight, rear blinker removal, & LED's

After the untimely demise of my overloaded KTM Duals rear rack in the Yukon wilderness in June I decided to make some changes to the rear end of my bike. I opted for a SW Motech Rack with the Quick Lock Alu plate and Rac Pac bag. Along with a used set (Thanks Adrian-kamui999) of GIVI side case brackets to support my Ortlieb soft luggage saddle bags. I finished the look off with a really nice full function LED taillight with integrated amber sequencing turn signals. And finally red LED strips attached to the side case brackets. I think it turned out pretty nice.

Funny, I've lived in Alaska since 91 and have yet to even plan a ride up the Haul Road. One of these years I guess.

It's definitely a ride to be well planned. The first time I worked the slope, it was this time of year in 90'. I bunked at Prudhoe hotel in Deadhorse and we had a great view of the Haul road. The hotel was were most the riders and bow hunters would stay. We would watch every evening to see who was gonna come rolling in. The bikes would be packed with tundra mud and had every form of racks, boxes and aux fuel pods you could imagine. Good Times. I never rode it but we would pile up in a truck after work and take it all the way to Brooks Range and glass wild life. Rough ride, I would love to say I'll do it one day but who knows. Taking a major trip to Alaska from here though is on the bucket list.
