I've ridden, enjoyed, and sold a bunch of bikes over the years. As an enduro racer - I lean towards thumpers. But I appreciate the occasional V-twin or Inline motor. I've recently been considering a ride to Prudahoe. While I've done 10,000 mile round trip jaunts in 3 weeks.... I personally don't PREFER that style of riding.... it detracts from the wild flowers For this run, I'm leaning more toward a lazy 250 mile/day jaunt - one way. And fly home. So my question is: If I were to buy a bike, outfit it, and ride it to Prudahoe Bay... than to return to say... Fairbanks or Anchorage and sell it... what bikes draw the best resale rate? What's in demand up there? I'm not picky. I'll set up a BMW, KLR, Harley, V-strom, whatever.... every bike has it's own style/character and I like them all... I'm more concerned with what bike I can sell to break even or for very little loss in Alaska! Obviously, something like a KLR or V-strom is ALWAYS going to have less conventional depreciation. But I know up in Alaska cost and value can sometimes shift based on availability or desirability. I've considered making the run on my KLX650, but range is a big issue. Besides, I can't help but think that a bike with more wind protection and a better seat would make for a better trip. Thank Guys!
