Just made to Mucho Lake and at this point I am wearing 6 pais of socks, 3 pairs of gloves and several layers on my body. So far so good. Sad to know that Whitehourse is my last clear road as I hoped to get to Anchorage much easily.

Regarding the crate, I still believe I will be able to find a free one, call me stubborn but I will try my way before wasting 500 dollars on a peace of metal!

Thanks for the info about the bikes shop in Whitehourse, I will stay there one night, hopefully tomorrow if there are no changes on the weather...

Rode 800 km today and planning on repeating myself tomorrow!

Here is a picture:

They also advised all roadways are iced over and not suitable for riding.

Looks like roads are currently "Bare" to Beaver Creek?

Whitehorse might be last chance where STUDS go in.
In Whitehorse there is Yukon Honda on the north side of town, see John, maybe he can help.
Call them for Whitehorse road conditions 867/6684451

Here are other shops in Anchorage to try.

Following along and hoping you arrive safely.
BTY, did you ride the Lost Coast?

No problem, just wanted to help out. I did talk to the motorcycle shop today and they will crate your bike for you for 300 bucks or sell you a BMW crate for 150. Let us know when you arrive so we can share a beer. Good luck on the ride.

Well, I'd like to see Fairbanks and venture a little bit on the way to Deadhorse, but my time is running and I have a flight ticket from Vancouver the 13th.Gotta figure how to send the bike back to Italy first....

Congrats on making it to Alaska. Looks like the weather is going to be on your side. Hope you get to see some of it before your trip to Vancouver.
