Thanks.

What is the company you are shipping the bike. Can you get the bike the same day you get there in Seattle? Are you planning to ride the same day you get in Seattle?

From Seattle I would ride to Alaska, visit Alaska over 7 days and then start heading to Chicago taking the Alaska Highway. It costs $580.00 to have my FJR shipped to Seattle from Chicago. Here is my route:
From Seattle: RT 99, RT 97, HW 16, RT 37, To Alaska Highway and go west.

I can add a few days if I need to...but would like to keep close to the planned mileages....yes I do know....wet cold, sloppy days will deter me from wanting to sit on a bike for a long day of riding....but you need to have a plan....that can be altered a bit...lol
I can stretch the time to a month at worst....so I've been told.....lol

I have done alot of work, looking for the best company with lowest price and after calling and trying to find the best transport company, I picked this one: http://www.funtransport.com/

AMA members get a discount and all prices include insurance.

I also looked into that and it's costs alot. Between $900-$1200 and some even more.

I have total of 17.5 day. Here is my plan.

Seattle to Alaska - 4.5 Days
Visitiing Alaska - 8 Days
Alaska to Chicago - 5 Days

By any chance, do you still know the companies that could ship from Alaska to Chicago. Even it is quite expensive, I'm really afraid to do this trip in 20 days. I cannot spend any longer than that.

Thanks again
