We would appreciate any feedback and hoping to meet some of you on our trip.
i would ride the Cassier both directions rather than continuing on the Alcan from Watson Lake, avoiding all the energy sector work from the mountains east all the way across Alberta. do not expect to find reasonable motel accommodations without some effort in that area. coming south from Alaska, ride down through Glacier into Montana rather than transit Canada from Alberta east. everything is less expensive in the States, plenty to see, higher speed limits, etc. you can still ride through Minnesota and pick up a route via Thunder Bay to the Soo on the north side of the lakes, then loop back through the UP via St. Ignace and into Wisconsin.
i met two pairs of Aussies the last time i was west, all said the riding was the best ever. two had purchased bikes in the states, the other two had shipped through Portland.
PM for additional detail if interested.
