    Great photos.....awesome!

    What was your travel window reguarding dates?

    Do you have a GPS track file with any waypoints?

    I attempted a ride to Alaska in June 07. Didn't make it. Rode into Dawson Creek running a fever and couldn't keep food down for almost two days. Turned around and headed back home. It rained 10 out 19.5 days on the road.

    I have the WB BB DL 1.1 and the McCat Ultra ready to go.

    Maybe next year!

    Daryl, I put up a ride report in post 16...

    But, the window was from May 29th to July 26th... ,

    I did use my Garmin Zumo 450 with many waypoints, the routes are simple..with limits roads... I used a Spot to track my progress....

    Rain, we did have many days with rain...May was a dry month for Alaska and they needed the rain... We planned for June to catch a dryer month and maybe the mosquitoes would not be as bad... Turn out June was pretty wet...
    Maybe next time you can have a better try at it... was fantastic trip..

    I have been trying to talk the wife into making a similar trip to Alsaka and your pictures just make me want to go even more.

    You must have had fun cleaning your bike with all the dirt it collected.

    Wow!!! What an epic journey!! I guess I'll have to wait until the kids go off to college to tackle a trip like that.

    Stunning pics. Thanks for letting us come along!

    Much appreciate the virtual trip. The real thing must have been beyond phenomenal.
