Excellent adventure! One of the nicest packing jobs on a bike I've seen in a while.
Safe Travels!

Great ride report. I was born and raised in Canada and have been to Cardston many times as my parents are both from there.

Good stuff so far there ruffnstuff. Curious to see where abouts you end up going to in Alaska. I was up there myself last summer, exploring all parts of the great white north, on another atypical Alaska bike, and I had a blast.

That is truely sad. I try my best to be polite to all everyone unless they cock an attitude. You are a US citizen and unless something is wrong or they "feel" something is wrong they can't stop you from entering you're home country. Just detain you for a bit.

I have been stopped at the border with family before I could drive. They couldn't understand why I didn't have a drivers license, and telling them I was 13yrs old as my info stated seemed to confuse them.

I wouldn't bet on that.

I don't always read Alaska ride reports. But when I do I appreciate the ones that feature a lone rider on a classic bike who has a story to tell.

Thanks for sharing this with us.
