I'm going to ride to Anchorage, Alaska in June or July of 07 starting from home in Tampa. 3 weeks of pretty easy riding at 200-250 miles a day and very very minimal Interstate miles.
After a week or so in Anchorage I was going to ride down to Sturgis and trailer home from there with my brother.
Current route will go through the following states/provinces. Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, Montana, Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon Territory and finally Alaska.
If anyone is seriously interested in joining up with me on this one in a lifetime ride you can
planning to leave new jersey end of june for a fast trip up to dead horse and then take the time to look around and see if i can get to purdoe bay before it gets too cold. any input would be welcome as its my first time to alaska.I even traded my 1150 rt on a 1200 gs bmw for this trip. are there any good travel guides out there?
Did the trip in July 05. It was a great ride. A lot of friendly people in Canada. Enjoy the ride the ride and the beautiful country up there. Stop at Burwash Landing free camping and a great little bar.
I'm planning a trip to Sitka via PrinceRupert BC. From central WA, it is 1200 miles to PR to catch a ferry. I plan on 2 days. The farther north you go the more daylight you get. Anchorage to Tampa at 250 miles a day is a month trip. If you let know where in BC you'll be riding, we might meet up for a short ride or compare notes. My route is North to Prince George and turn left.
