Yes those month will be a bit more colder and rain. So just be prepare , dress warm and stay dry.

Hello AKDuc, it was a pleasure to meet you as well. I would like to make it, I suppose I should stake-out a campsite now. Are you getting any winter rides in this year? How is the amazing Fai right now?

Just finally getting the studded tires on the KLR. Fai is doing well. I'll tell her you said "hello."

Be great to see you in Dawson City. We really fill up the corner of the Goldrush Campground in town. Fun!



Remember to practice up for the Biker Games too.

And then plan on going up The Midnight Dome behind town for the Solstice party with the locals. Mark H.

Sounds interesting. My only plans that are written in stone are my dates. I have already made campground reservations for Denali NP, Jasper/Banff NP and Glacier NP as they are almost impossible to get. Therefore I must leave Nashville on June 11 to meet those reservations. If you are not already set on your dates let's talk.

Sounds like you have a great plan but I am stuck with my dates of June 11 to July 12 as I have reservations for Denali NP, Jasper/Banff NP and Glacier NP plus hope for less chance of rain in mid June and mid July.

Ship my Dutch orange tiger1050 end of June to Halifax, pick up some friends in Toronto and then to Anchorage, July 18th approx. Stay there for 2 nights, change tires at Dan's place, and then back to Hailfax.

Jim,

I'm leaving a few days before you from Boone, NC. June 2, I believe. Probably pass your house around lunch time! You're gonna love this trip. I made it up to Dawson in 2010 and loved it so much,
I cant wait to go back.

I hope to camp the majority of the time but my plan is if its raining hard them a roof and warm bed it is. I've been wet and cold enough in my life.

Looking at solo as the guy that was going backed out.....it happens
so it sounds like you mean the local Harley dealership wont service the Buell? But I thought that Harley sold Bue......never mind....

Sorry but my June 11th departure is written in stone as I have campground reservations in Denali, Jasper/Banff NP and Glacier NP which are hard to get plus I will be doing Jasper/Banff and Glacier on the way home in July. Have a great trip and post some pics when you return

Thanks Dave, hope your trip is the best. This is my first time going to Alaska and I just can't wait to see the countryside.

@NightProwler - how long is the trip (how many days)? I am planning to ride out to Maine in June (even thought about riding out to St. John in Newfoundland), but not sure if that will happen yet so depending on the days, I may be able to swing it.
