Brings back memories of my first ride to Alaska in 1983, also on a BMW R75/6. Rode from Indiana to Fairbanks, sold the bike to George Rahn, then flew home. Blew my whole 3 weeks of vacation time.

Ranger Lake Road, off 17 at Heyden is a nice dual sport ride. It runs into 129 and from there, you can go south to 17 east or go north to Chapleau and pick up 101 west to Wawa or east to Timmins.
