    I wish I had done one. But so many people do that trip that I just added notes to one of the Alaska FAQ pages.

    I even kept all the notes for the Iron Butt pin and never submitted it.

    It didn't last. On the way back down, rain caught us at Atigun Pass:

    Did you 2-up or did she chase you?

    My wife flew to Anchorage and we tooled around The Spit for a few days... but she had no desire to backseat that trip.

    MikeGC needs to explain this image, as well as show his denuded bike on his driveway after the trip to illustrate proper apres-Alaska sanitary practices. :deal

    I packed a Phantom 4 drone along the way, too. I got some really cool Drone footage... almost 3 years later and I still haven’t gone through it all.

    One of those videos is the one where my buddy hits the first bear we see.

    The bear cub (about 100lbs) full sprint into my buddy just behind the front wheel, hit the left header. Luckily Mike is an experienced rider and jumps on the pegs and throttle.

    I didn’t get the hit- I had just turned off the camera, but I got the after strike stop. We were able to finish the trip so kudos to BMW’s front end setup.
