Into Canada

We left Tok at 9:35 on our way to Whitehorse in Canada. it took us about 2 hours to reach the border.

Entering Canada was easy and straight forward, however our cell phones didn't work, so we stopped at a gas station along the way to use the pay phone to call the hotel and make a reservation. well we didn't have any Canadian currency, and the phone does not accept credit cards.

So we continued until Burwash Landing where we filled with fuel, found a public phone that accepts credit cards, and had pie along in a restaurant overlooking the lake.

We then had a 2 and a half hour straight ride to Whitehorse, where we stopped at a local restaurant for dinner and noticed that the leak on my bike got significantly worse with oil splatter on the tire.

There was no way that it would survive the 2700 km ride to Vancouver where the nearest BMW Dealer on our route is.

Tomorrow we will make some phone calls and see how to move the bike to Vancouver.
