What's the range on that sport bike? You better pack some with you and bring a hose to siphon.
There are a couple of places to gas up which have been mentioned.

The only chatter I've ever received has been entering back into the U.S., generally just smart asses.

You're going to need that 2 gallon jug and maybe some extra. Its about 240 miles to the first service station on the Dempster if you plan ondoing that. Otherwise your good to go with just your 4.5 gallon capacity

AND it's ONLY $20 a trip across. Just wait for me at the crossing, give me the $$ and I'll pay for both of us

The TOW Hwy has been muddy at least one direction each of the past 6yrs I've ridden it. This last year the dry gravel going to Dawson also seemed the loosest and squirrelliest I've felt. I almost pulled over a couple times to see if I had a flat front tire it was so squirrelly. I even heard another rider say that he DID pull over to check his tires!

And yes, the Yukon ferry crossing is free and leaves every 10min or so 24-7.

And remember, when you come to a construction zone on the hwy that it's okay for motorcycles to go to the front of the line.
