Australians touring North America

My Yamaha Super Teneree and my wife and I will be arriving in Portland on July 3rd. to start an 11 week tour of Alaska, Canada and the U.S. We are planning to ride to Fairbanks via the Cassiar Hwy. then to Anchorage and on to Fairbanks. A few days rest and then on to Top of World Highway and Campbell Hwy. Then across North Central Canada around great lakes to Sault ste Marie and down into Wisconsin to visit family. After 10 day break that will leave us three weeks, we are then hoping to ride to New Orleans and back to Portland by Sept16th through northern New Mexico and Utah. We have estimated about 22,000km. We are expecting to a fair bit of riding on unsealed roads mostly in the north and are hoping to avoid major free ways if possible.

Hoping for some advise, I know this does sound ambitious but we have done a few long trips two up but not this long. We are expecting rain so we will be carrying wet weather gear but are not planning on any heated vests etc. but will bring warm cloth for layering.

We will be carrying camping gear for when motels are not available and too expensive. The bike is fitted out with aluminium panniers and top case and Givi 480 tank bag.

We would appreciate any feedback and hoping to meet some of you on our trip.
