Can't take possesion of a handgun in Alaska if you are not a resident of the state. Most, if not all states have the same rule. Only exception is if you are active duty and can prove you are stationed in the state via military orders.

Bummer.  Until someone flushes sec. 922 down the toilet where it belongs I'm going to be taking the ferry to AK.

I've been to Alaska a number of times, driving/riding 'naked' in every case. Never broke into a sweat, never even though about it actually.

I suspect I'd have had a far greater chance of a run in with someone texting while driving, than any situation that demanded "personal protection".

Mail your firearm to yourself in AK, last I checked that was totally legal. Or leave it with a pal somewhere near the border and don't tell no one!

Enjoy your ride in the Canadian interior, and into Alaska, nothing like it in the world. At least by bike from the lower 48 anyway ;)

ther's some great info in this thread. Enjoy your ride Jeremy. I'm hoping to do a ride from Texas to Alaska in 2015.
Life is good.... At least from my perspective.
