I’m Looking for a ride partner or partners (max 4 bikes). Prefer old farts like myself. Will be staying in mom and pop motels (no camping except in emergency). This will be my 4th and most likely final ride north. In the past it has always been on a Harley, but this time on a BMW GSA. I have ridden most all the pavement in the north. It is now time to ride the gravel I have missed. Plan to be on the road 4 or 5 weeks give or take. Below is a general over view of the roads I intend to ride. Of course there is the wild life and points of interest (to many to list here). If you are interested I can go over the ride in more detail when we meet.
NWT--Water Fall HWY (paved) connects to the Mackenzie HWY to Ft. Simpson/ Laird HWY to Ft. Laird/ Dempster HWY to Inuvik and then on to Tuktoyaktuk/ (this section has just opened to the Arctic Ocean).
Yukon--Campbell HWY/Nahanni Range Road/Canol Road/Top of the World HWY from Dawson/Road to Mayo & Keno.
BC--Cassiar HWY(paved)/Telegraph Creek Road/Kettle Valley Rail Trail.
Alaska--Taylor HWY(Eagle & Chicken)/Dalton HWY “maybe” (Lots of truck traffic/lots of construction)/Steese HWY to Circle/Elliot HWY to Manley Hot Springs/Tanana Road (just opened 2017)/Denali HWY/Hatcher Pass Road/Edgerton HWY to McCarthy/Salmon Glacier Road.
I plan to leave late May 29, 2018. If you are interested please PM me So we can go over the details. Remember we have to meet person to person to be sure we will be compatible ride partners.
Did you go on that ride?
