I got a relatively early start today as I am feeling a bit run down. I think too many long days in a row. It was a brisk 45°F this morning so the grip heaters were on 3 of 5 but the heated gear wasn't used (yet). If it started to rain again, then it all would've surfaced. The roads were pretty deserted until about 10am. Until then, maybe another vehicle would go by every ten minutes or so. This is the view of the steel grate bridge at Teslin again. I had to stop about 2 km back to add the contents of the gas can. This was the first time I ever let the tank run completely dry. Now I know that I can go around 37 km after switching to reserve. That information could be useful. Only 414km today.
Just a quick stop at the Whitehorse info sign. I found a really reasonable B&B (i.e. cheap) and booked it for two nights. A little recuperation time from the long days and I need to call into a meeting tomorrow noon through the afternoon. I need reasonable Internet and cell signal to participate in the meeting. I originally thought that I would be back in town by the meeting but that was based on my last trip with the Beemer. According to the forecast, it'll be raining here for the next couple of days.
Absolutely no issues with the Ural on this half of the trip. Some oil consumption (½ qt since Crater Lake). The waterproof switch I installed for the four-way flasher function is too hard to switch. I never used to think that there was much difference between different brands of gasoline but based on this trip, the Ural seems to prefer regular (87 octane), non-ethanol gas. Higher octane non-ethanol gas will drop CHT about 25°F but will drop gas mileage and performance as well. Adding ethanol significantly drops mileage and performance.
