Wow!!! Amazing! Can you tell us more? Did you have spare tires with you, buy them along the way? Pump, etc? Sleep in tent? Cook your food, etc?

I stopped in Fairbanks for tires and an oil change and Missoula for tires. I carried a tire plug kit and air pump. Traveling 500-800 miles/day requires a good nights rest and minimal time to eat - I usually stayed in a hotel/house/shelter and ate at a caf or did not eat. I slept on the ground a few nights and went without food for a day or two at a time.


A good part of the ride was cold, wet and shivering temperatures - it was a challenge and challenges are not all fun.


The more remote and rugged things got the less HD I saw and much of the ride was beyond the capability of most motorcycles.

Riding distance is a relative thing. A ride to big bend, "Sturgis" or Montana all seem like short rides now.
