@Valk rider: You, sir, are a hero! A co-worker was telling me this morning that his parents traveled the AlCan in the 1970's and I told him that it is a much different experience today than what they enjoyed. And you did it with drum brakes! A tip of my hat to you! What is the electronics hanging over your instrument panel? Feel free to share more of your AlCan experience or provide a link to your Ride Report.
