That sounds like an epic ride for sure! So your going thru Beaver Creek and Haines then on to Whitehorse? How many miles you think it will be?

1600 miles round trip starting from anch..back to anch.
I'll post a map of the route later. Any input can be added & can be subject to change.

I was going to just ride up to Fairbanks then to Tok. And hit Dawson. But then that would be boring since I been up fairbank already. So might as well go explore Canada.

There is nothing boring about the ride from Tok to Dawson............Maybe if you are in a car

Hey Nutty if the chiro doesn't get it, I do have a dual sport already set up for touring. Just needs wolfman bags. I'm keeping mine for the next bike.

Wow...this thread has gone downhill.

I don't think we had that much planning involved in our SLC-AK trip!
