    i did that ride two weeks ago from wasilla, skipping only watson lake, the whitehorse to skagway was my favorite, followed by haines to haines jct for road rides, speaking with riders on the trip the least favorite for large bikes was the construction zones between tok and burwash.

    Had great weather and no flats. The bugs were epic camping at the tangle river we just crazy. Some great bear encounters. Just ask Vento he had a sow and cub sneak up on him at the Cottonwood RV park in Kulane morning of the 4th.

    We stopped there but decided otherwise because of the bears....ended up at the hotel just up the road.

    We're headed down to Summit Lake from Fairbanks today via the denali highway...may see rain for the first time on our trip, hopefully bears from a distance:eek1 .

    Pastieman and I were across the Denali yesterday. Road surface east of the Susitna was mixed loose gravel with some washboard and holes/ west of the river the surface was hard pack and FAST. No bears...a nice young lady serving ice cream and pie at GH though......
