Hoping to go back to the Arctic Circle and trying to decide if I should take the CTX or buy a different bike for the trip.
Can't do the ride until 2018 (they're still working on the road) but if I need a different bike I want to buy it this fall.
Setting up another bike takes time!!
The ride to Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories would include almost 1100 miles of gravel and there will be mud and calcium chloride.
I want to use a Shinko 700 Series rear tire on the front so I would need to raise the front fender at least a 1/2", that will be a challenge because of the brake line and ABS wiring crossing over the fender.
The rear - run flat snow tire
Headlight guard - Cee Baileys
Radiator guard - RadGuard
Fork protector - Shock Sox
Extra gasoline - REDA cans
Can the CTX make it to the Arctic Ocean?
Tuk is on the top right -
