I hope you'll come back with a trip report. I'm planning one to Alaska next year and could use the info. Even if not a full report, perhaps just your routing and any border crossing
stories would be interesting, and photos of course.  :D
Have fun, be safe.

Thanks, FM.  I’ll be taking my new Laam seat on a long trip for the first time as well.  First indications are that it should serve me well.

The guys I’m riding with did this trip about 8 years ago.  One ended up crashing into a cub that ran across the highway directly in front of him.  Cub died, rider suffered some road rash and bruises.  Hopefully, there’ll be non of that nonsense on THIS trip!

Day Ten.  We’re in Anchorage.  We’ve been through some beautiful and some stormy weather.  Advice given to me by my friends for crossing the Canadian Border:  Those officers do NOT have a sense of humor, so don’t play.  It was “Yes sir” and “No sir”.  I was the first to go through and had all my ducks in a row.  He must have asked me about 15 to 20 questions about my trip and about me.  I told him that I’m a retired CHP and then he made CERTAIN that I wasn’t carrying. Once he was okay with me, he asked about the other guys.  (Two are retired LEOs and one still active).  When he got to the last guy, the active one, he said “I just have one question for you.  Do you like CHiPs?”

I’ve been trying some interesting cuisine.  I’ve had bison, caribou and reindeer.  Yeah, naughty list for me. 

The ALCAN highway is murder on tires.  There’s a lot of spots with loose gravel that warrants careful and tedious riding.  Most of it is hard packed unless it fresh.  In AK, we crossed five miles of loose gravel/dirt/mud on Highway 1 heading out of Tok. 

We had planned on a day trip to Seward today but after breakfast, I discovered that my right fork seal is now blowing oil.  (I had previously used a sealmate and it hadn’t leaked for about 3k miles). So after searching and making several calls, I found a local shop to replace the seals.  We head out for Healy tomorrow.  The mechanic will try to get to it today (no promises) but will definitely start on it tomorrow morning.  Fingers crossed...

Do you already have the ECU reflash or did you order that, also?

Hi maxtog
No flash yet on this one. I may try something different than the last time.
