NORTH TO THE ARCTIC 2018
I’m Looking for a ride partner or partners (max 4 bikes). Prefer old farts like myself. Will be staying in mom and pop motels (no camping). This will be my 4<sup>th</sup> and most likely final ride north. In the past it has always been on a Harley, but this time on a BMW GSA. I have ridden most all the pavement in the north. It is now time to ride the gravel I have missed. Plan to be on the road 4 or 5 weeks give or take. Below is a general over view of the roads I intend to ride. Of course there is the wild life and points of interest (to many to list here). If you are interested I can go over the ride in more detail.
NWT–Water Fall HWY (paved) connects to the Mackenzie HWY to Ft. Simpson/ Laird HWY to Ft. Laird/ Dempster HWY to Inuvik and then on to Tuktoyaktuk/ (this section has just opened to the Arctic Ocean).
Yukon–Campbell HWY/Nahanni Range Road/Canol Road/Top of the World HWY from Dawson/Road to Mayo & Keno.
BC–Cassiar HWY(paved)/Telegraph Creek Road/Kettle Valley Rail Trail.
Alaska–Taylor HWY(Eagle & Chicken)/Dalton HWY “maybe” (Lots of truck traffic/50% paved & not that great of scenery/lots of construction)/Steese HWY to Circle/Elliot HWY to Manley Hot Springs/Tanana Road (just opened 2017)/Denali HWY/Hatcher Pass Road/Edgerton HWY to McCarthy/Salmon Glacier Road.
I plan to leave late May or early June 2018. If you are interested please E-mail me at email@example.com with the title “Arctic”. So we can go over the details.
