I finished my first long motorcycle trip on my '83 R100RT airhead starting from Fairbanks, AK to Santa Cruz, CA and back. No mechanical issues at all and the most common comment from other riders (Harley and BMW riders especially) was "You came from Alaska on THAT!?"

I posted on my blog almost daily during the trip and other riders in eastern Oregon to ride Hell's Canyon and some national forest roads around Joseph. This photo is near the eastern end of Kluane Lake in the Yukon territory.
