Most absurd trip you've ever thought of

I mean we're REALLY getting out of the box with these. A few to kick it off:

Winter Alcan 5k. Do they even let bikes race in it?

Non-stop under-the-radar trip straight through North Korea. Take a 950A loaded up with 15 gallons of gas or so and hit it at night with a go-pro rolling. All the way from China to South Korea (or vice versa). Take a Gumball rally and condense all the law-breaking into a span of around 300 miles.

Whacha got?

The most Westerly highway point on North American continent is the Cook Inlet beach, at Anchor Point, Alaska.

The most Northerly highway point on the North American continent is Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.
.
1060 miles between them.
It would be a noteworthy challenge to make the two corners in under 24 hours.

I've always been fascinated by extremely remote places, such as the Northwest Territories and Nunavut in Northern Canada. Maybe a motorcycle trip to see how close I could get to Somerset Island.

I have been to Nunavut and do not think there are many roads. Flew over it on the way to an Arctic Icebreaker Expedition and did not see any roads.

I've looked before and there are very few roads between places. You can count the major ones on your fingers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highways_in_Nunavut

However, as per the theme of this thread, that is no reason NOT to do it!

ok I admit there could be a few issues to solve, like freight, and oxygen supply for man and machine..
...but what about the Moon??

Well - a ride over from China for some burgers, pizza and hot dogs in North Korea, thinking about it since 1989....

To hit strip clubs every night of a trip
That would normally entail large cities which I can't stand so the small towns with rippers might be sparse lol
