    Plan it out good, I drove there in a tractor trailer about 13 yrs ago. There are a lot of long stretches where you might not see anyone. I would love to ride it on a bike. Takes lots of pics because there's some beutiful places along the way. safe riding Harley D

    I'd love to make that trip, but I'm not sure I'd be able to convince my wife to try and do it on a bike. I certainly wouldn't want to do it on my Sporty.

    I just worry that once I was in Alaska, I wouldn't want to come back home!

    Took a cruise up there in 2006(end of July) beautiful country, weather was mostly high 60's and 70's, and quite a bit wet days. Still would love to ride up there one day. Just be prepared for the rain. Good Luck .you won't regret it
