Howdy,

Grizzly momma and cub

Well the excitement has begun. We started off the day with a return to Hyder to watch the grizzlies again. What luck! They were there early in the morning. We took tons of pics and some video of the bears. La Kitten is trying to get them uploaded for me. Carolyn says it is working, but with only the iPad and Slo-fi, I’m not having much luck.






 

Also, we were delayed with bike troubles. Seems like Gazelle’s Bmw F-650 has an apparent design flaw in the EPA filter system. Imagine that! It completely clogged up and the bike would not run. The Vulture made a $40 satellite phone call from the middle of nowhere to Ride West BMW in Seattle. They are the best! They told him how to bypass the EPA filter and all is well. If anyone finds this post regarding problems with the F-650 or the F-800, just disconnect the hose, located eight inches behind the gas filler cap, under the cowling. Apparently it gets clogged when you get in the dirt…which is what it was designed to do!!! Hopefully tomorrow we will progress to Whitehorse without further incident. Until then…..
