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 café 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.
