When a good friend of the IL crew dropped by the workshop unexpectedly on a new BMW R1200GS Adventure (slick dual sport motorcycle) tricked out with as many saddlebags and cargo boxes that it could fit, he captured our curiosity. It turns out he’d decided to, on a six week break from his Chief Mate’s job aboard an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico, drive a motorcycle from Key West, FL to Prudhoe Bay, AK and back.
He let us pretty much cover his brand new beautiful bike with Inspiration Longboards stickers and we helped him strap one of our Shorty boards off the into what little cargo space he had left. A couple of us tailed him to Key West to help send him off on his adventure, betting on how far he’d make it before his first pullover or breakdown and whether he’d give up or be arrested along the way. Not to any of our surprise, Dan made it smoothly and safely through his entire epic round trip and had his Inspiration Longboards Shorty along with him for when he needed to stretch his legs and needed a break from the bike. Congratulations Dan, that’s an amazing undertaking, we’re glad to have been a slight part of it and really enjoyed watching your adventure unfold on your blog, http://danloebel.blogspot.com.
