My grandfather this year decided he would like to ride from MN to the Arctic Circle and back one more time. He has done it three times already by motorcycle both times. When I found out about this once in a lifetime opportunity, I thought I would share it with anyone else that might be interested. What better place than ADVRider! I will be taking my 05 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 up to my hometown in MN from Atlanta, GA. I plan on leaving July 2 & returning August 6. I have mapped out backroads the entire way from GA to MN and a good majority of the rest of the trip will be on backroads as well. I will meet up with my grandfather in MN and we will begin our journey to AK together. Additionally, my father will also be joining us for part of the trip, so we will have three generations putting on some miles together! The plan is to ride straight up to Fairbanks and spend a little time with my relatives there. My relatives do the Iditarod so I am looking forward to seeing the dogs. From there we plan to spend the day in Denali, then down to Valdez, then back into Canada where we will stay in Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise. From there, we head down into Montana to Glacier, then into Wyoming to Yellowstone, then over to the Black Hills of South Dakota, then back to MN where I will spend a day with family before heading back to GA. I will post up some pictures and updates periodically. Looking forward to an unforgettable journey!!
