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!
