You will need a passport for easiest entry. Make sure you have motorcycle endorsement on your drivers license. Have proof of bike ownership and insurance. No firearms. You may get by with a birth certificate......But they may want a passport this year. It will rain. The threat of forest fires closing the road in June is always a possibility. Canada has a helmet law. The monties will enforce it even in town. They use Canadian money. Most places will accept US dollars at whatever exchange rate they choose. You will get your change in Canadian dollars. The big round coins are really worth two dollars canadian-don't think of them as quarters. ATM machines are available and spit out Canadian money. The bank in Dawson City usually has the best exchange rate. Once you cross back into the US you may find it harder to get merchants to accept Canadian Dollars. Spend it all at the bar the night before you leave. Between Tok and Dawson City Gasoline is available in Chicken, Eagle and Boundry. A word to the wise-don't pass up a chance to fuel up. If the road gets closed and you have to turn around you'll be glad you did. Expect sticker shock when you see the price per gallon in the US and don't forget that in Canada they sell by the imperial gallon and any hope of converting to US gallons or figuring you milage is best left to the math majors with their TI calculators. You can gamble at the casino in Dawson City. Bring cash or your loaded credit card. Tickets to the banquet, t-shirts, and poker run entries will be available for sale outside the Downtown Hotel. You can pick up a schedule of events here also. The banquet will be limited seating, first come first served. The poker run has a $5.00 entry. Pay back goes to the winning hand.
