After having recently gotten married, my plans for my Alaska trip have been changed to include a passenger, which I'm happy to have. With this change there's talk of getting a Honda Goldwing. I've read a handful of trip reports of others going all the way up to Prudhoe Bay and some say the roads are brutal on bikes while others say their fine. I've read that some have made the ride on Spyders and others on scooters, so I'm guessing that a Goldwing should be okay, but those bikes are not cheap and the idea of what it'll endure makes me wince. But, I'd like to know from you Alaska veterans. Goldwing; good idea, bad idea? And sort of things am I likely to end up replacing?
