words cannot describe the feeling i get when i'm on my bike, just riding in to nowhere.

a couple of months ago, i got the opportunity to quite my job for 3 months.
after some short thinking i decided to go to canada and alaska.
the 2 country's on my to see list.
trying to ship my own bike to canada was to expensive.
so with the help from an adv inmate i bought a bike 2003 klr650.

i'm flying 5 may to calgary to pick up the bike.
normally i'm riding alaska in june and july.
from haines to tok, tok to valdez, valdez taking a ferry to whittier, whittier to denali and back to the yukon

i'm trying to camp as much as possible to keep the cost low.
i'm pretty much a noob (first big trip on a motorcycle)
so tips are mor than welcome.
nice campsites, place's i must see.

would you recommend the ferry crossing from valdez to whittier?
somewhere along the trip i'm gonna have to change my chain and sprocket. i'll be carrying one with me but i have never done it before.
are there a lot of motorcycle shops along the way that could help me with that?

greetings from belgium
