Hi Folks,

Currently all of the interview spots are filled. However, we will have a second phase of this study, sometimes in March-April and I will send anyone an invitation who didn't get in during phase 1.

Thank you for the interest and visiting our Territories.

Regards,

Andras

I sent a PM before I looked at page 2; I was so enthusiastic that I didn't see the first phase is full.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Dempster and some of the other roads in the area. I hope the survey participants provide useful information.

Online Survey is available

Hi Folks,

I have some updates. It took a while to launch Phase 2, but it's finally live:

"The Dempster Highway Adventure Motorcycle Survey is being conducted by the Government of Northwest Territories and the Government of Yukon. The goal of this research project is to better understand Dempster Highway adventure motorcycle riders and the services, products and infrastructure that are needed to enhance or support this experience.

The survey is open to motorcyclists who have ridden the Dempster Highway or those who are still planning their northern adventure. The survey should only take about 8-10 minutes of your time. Your answers will remain completely anonymous. However, at the end of survey you will have the opportunity to enter your contact information to enter a draw for camping equipment packages valued at $500 each."


To fill out the survey, please follow this link: (be advised that you can only complete the survey once):


https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Dempster


Please let me know if you have any questions.

Rode the Dempster in 2012. Incredible scenery and ride of a lifetime. Survey is filled out. Would love to return once the road to Tuktoyuktuk is completed.

More information below (post #18)


Phase 1.
The Government of Northwest Territories' Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment is jointly undertaking a Dempster Highway Adventure Motorcycle research project with the Yukon Government. The aim of this research project is to better understand Dempster Highway adventure motorcycle riders and the services, products and infrastructural improvements that are needed to enhance or support this experience.


As most of you are aware the Government of Northwest Territories is committed to the design, development, construction and maintenance of a highway extending the Mackenzie Highway from Wrigley to the Dempster Highway, and extending the Dempster Highway from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk. When these two roads are completed, the Alaska, Campbell, Dempster, Mackenzie and Liard Highways would become an amazing gravel loop.


The first phase of our study involves a telephone interview with people who recently done the Dempster. The interview should take between 30 to 60 minutes to complete and it is confidential and no personal data will be used or shared with anyone outside the research team. A $100 VISA Gift Card will be provided as an honorarium to interview participants. The interview questions are related to all activities involved in organizing and completing a Dempster Highway motorcycle trip.



The second phase of the study will be an online survey. I will provide details of the survey later.



At this point, I would like to talk to inmates who recently rode the Dempster. Please send me a PM with the following information, if you are interested in being part of this project:


Date of travel:
Where are you from (city/province/country)


All our communication is strictly confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside the research team. If you have any questions about this research project or either territorial government, please visit our websites or contact me.

I hate surveys, but I did this one for Canada! Great Country, great people. Please do not pave the Dempster, I coming back next year.

Thank for doing the survey. The completion number is slowly increasing, we were passed 100 this weekend. I would like to ask all of you to post the link on Facebook/Twitter/etc and encourage your fellow riders to visit the survey. It would really-really help us to show the importance of adventure motorcycles to the tourism economy of the North.

Thanks!
