Cry Overdue motorcyclist - Tennessee to Alaska

UPDATE - SEE BELOW - no longer missing and he's in Alaska!

Y'all likely note the bikes you pass on your travels. If you're in Alberta, B.C., Yukon or Alaska, keep your eyes open for this bike - a black 1997 Goldwing tri-wheel motorcycle with Tennessee license plate ZB0984 towing a black Bushtek trailer. Rider is a 74-year-old man from Tennessee.

If you've seen it or see it, contact info is in the police report at

I saw a black tri-wheeled Goldwing in Wasilla two days ago and noted it as the dual outrigger wheel conversion struck me as odd.... But I was busily staring at the wheel arrangement and don't recall the plate. I'll keep an eye out.

Yeah I saw one as well heading out on the Glenn Hwy from Anchorage earlier in the week (Tuesday maybe). That is what caught my attention as well. I was going the opposite way so I didn't see the plate.

I saw a bike very similar to that one yesterday headed SE on the Seward Hwy around milepost 105 and around 1400 hrs. Just like Tim, it got my attention because of the outrigger wheel design and thought, well thats different. It was headed opposite direction so I didn't see a plate.

Yup, found as he crossed from Yukon into Alaska, by the border agents!

Apparently his cell phone quit working while he was in Canada so he wasn't contacting his family so they assumed the worst. A guy just can't take a break from the world!

Thats why I have the SPOT. I don't use the tracking function. I hit OK every 1-2 hours and a text message and emails go out. Wife gets concerned if more than two hours, worried at 3 and scared at 4!!! I even use it for local rides because the 'gators can be hungry!!! If I stop for the night and have no other communications I hit OK three times, spaced out long enough that they are three separate hits, from the same location. Thats the ALL OK to the wife that I am stopped for the night and safe. I had no issues with my spot all over the lower US, Canada, AK and down in Ecuador!!
