In May-July of this year I made the trip from SE Pennsylvania to Alaska and back on my 2009 F650GS. Now I've been invited to give a presentation on that trip as part of the October 17th Fall Open House at RevZilla Motorsports (Philadelphia, PA). I intend to cover all elements of the trip....bike, planning, route, lodging, etc, etc, etc. If you want to know more about long distance travel on an F650GS twin or about making that once in a lifetime trip to Alaska please come on out. The more the merrier! Have questions or things you would like me to address? Message me here or email to firstname.lastname@example.org! Please join me at RevZilla on Oct 17!
