I just found out that I might be able to do the transporter special for MQ from Los Angeles to Anchorage. They need a 700GS there by 6/4. I chose the 700GS against the 1200GS based on bike weight & leg reach although the 1200GS did seem much more comfortable. The earliest that I can pick up the bike is on 5/15. Unfortunately, the 700GS that needs to be transported does not have a windscreen, it just has the stock, short fly screen. I'm guessing this would be a problem. I'm currently in the process of applying for a Canadian visitor visa. Anyway, my current WIP itinerary is below and the map screenshot attached. I understand that the weather will be a very big concern, especially in the Yukon. Need advice: - route planning - scenic detours, short hikes - purchasing gear (I currently only have summer street riding and basic camping gear) - tips on staying - hostels/motels/camping - general riding/700GS tips - Navigation aids - standalone GPS or cellphone (offline GMaps) Me: - 37,000mi on my Ninja 300 in the past 2 years - 5'8", 140lbs - Gear: AGV Corsa helmet, Dainese summer jacket, Sedici riding boots, Dainese short cuff gloves, outer rain jacket shell Road tripping experience: - Longest motorcycle trip: 5-day LA <-> Portland on my Ninja 300 (avg riding of 450mi/day) - Calgary <-> Yellowknift NWT in a car - Multiple 1-3day road trips on my Ninja - Never moto-camped before Itinerary (these are just intended stops based on riding distances, no stay has been finalized): 0: Home CA 1: Redding CA - 555mi 2: Seattle WA - 586mi 3: Vancouver BC - 157mi (rest day) 4: Jasper AB - 500mi 5: Houston BC - 424mi 6: Iskut BC - 360mi (rest day) 7: Watson Lake YT - 211mi 8: White Horse YT - 270mi 9: Beaver Creek YT - 270mi 10: Copper Center AK - 260mi (option: Fairbanks - 311mi) 11: Anchorage AK - 195mi (option: Anchorage - 360mi) 12: Seward - Anchorage AK - 150mi Since I have done the PCH/1 from Portland - LA, I don't mind a straight, quick ride all the way to Seattle and do the scenic riding in Canada/Alaska. There are 2 things that I'm trying to fit in: a ride through scenic Jasper and perhaps the Going to the Sun road (big detour). Any help/tips is appreciated since this will be the first time I'm doing a road trip of this scale.
