Great story and pics. You lived in AK long?
was gonna go all the way up..was.. and yes ive been up here since 2002, moved up from Sac, Ca.

Given the current road conditions it was pretty cool you made it up as far as you did. Great job!
yeah, wild life bummer, i was hoping to see all kinds of , but not even close. oh well..., i wasnt really plan to go all the way up to Deadhorse, and also those GS guys that i met at Arctic circle were all telling me its dirty and rough up there with about 2 inch mud, they were like , you aint going to make it with those tires. lol they just came from up there and were heading back to FB.

Truly awesome

Thanks so much for sharing. Looks like you had a great time. I was in many of those places last March and would love to go again in the summer via bike. Alaska is one of those places you have to go many times to see the diversity....
Can't wait to read about your next adventure....

We ran across this guy in '09. He was just getting back into Fairbanks, after having been to Deadhorse already.




it can be done on a sport bike, but man oh man.

Excellent report - thanks
It shows that you can go a long way without a GS
