In keeping with the spirit of the ride, Wheels North will carry a Billiken with us. We have an authentic, 1909 Billiken, which will ride back to Seattle for a 100-year homecoming.

Readers of "Two Wheels North" know that Vic and Ray carried a Billiken with them in 1909. Billiken ("The God of Things As They Ought to Be") was the patron of the Alaska Pacific Yukon Exposition, and they had purchased one of the small ceramic figurines from a traveling publicity show.
