Buy a Ural to ride to Alaska. I did. The Alaska Highway is made for Urals.
This is Mount Robson. Let me tell ya, it doesn't get any better than sitting on the front porch of this little cabin smoking a cigar n sippin' hooch while the setting sun does its evening light show on snow-capped mountains.
Along the Top of the World Hwy:
This was the best trip of my 65 year life (so far) and the Ural definitely was a large part in helping to make it so memorable.
Oh, and in 17,000 km in 18 months I haven't had a single significant issue, just a couple of little things not even worth mentioning.
