Thanks a lot Dave - and Soph9 with the Tigers - and all the rest of the RR's I've read here. Mention the ADV to a Harley rider and they just look confused. Retired last July and started planning the Alaska trip. I'll arrive in Fairbanks the 3rd week of June. If the Harley runs and the weather holds, head up the Dalton a ways.....
Your trips are amazing. If I have half as much fun as you did it will be a good trip.
