Ride wise

My two cents. Lots of places to ride and things to do. Rode Alaska last year in June great trip and only had 5 days out of 18 with rain. But I think for your first long trip I would stay in the lower states. So much to see in the southwest, warm weather and the bugs are a lot smaller. Grand Canyon to the Badlands to Moab to Mono Lake fantastic riding country all across this land. Lots of motorcycle shops just in case of problems. Then, next year head to Alaska.
Just my thoughts. It's the way I trained my wife to ride her first year.

Good luck and have fun

When purchasing the Bear spray make sure it is labled Bear spray, or you won't be able to take it through Canada. There is a brand of Bear spray labled Counter Assult which since it isn't specific to bears is not allowed in Canada.
