I've signed up for an Alaskan motorcycle tour at the end of June. Tour starts in Anchorage and makes a big circle through Talkeetna, Fairbanks, Paxson, Valdez and back to Anchorage (8 days).
Not having been to Alaska before I wanted to get a handle on what to expect from the roads and the remote terrain. We will be on all paved roads but I've heard that we may encounter loose gravel and such. My bike of choice is an F650 which I assume is a good choice. I live in South Florida and our roads are pretty tame compared to what I think I will experience in Alaska.
Can anyone who's been to or currently is in Alaska provide some insight? I'm really looking forward to the trip and can't wait for the next 3 months to go by.
Thanks for any insights.
