Being that I live in Alaska already, kinda makes it easy for me tour this awesome state.

Starting next week I'll be touring the northen of alaska on my 600rr .

I'll keep ya posted, and get pictures up soon on the trip and how I set up the CBR for touring.

This adventure starts August 1st- 7th 2012

One major attraction on this tour will be riding up to the Arctic Circle.

this is the basic on the route i'll be riding;



Stay tune. You might just want to ride up here next year !

That part getting to the arctic circle is what worries me a bit. Because there's about over 50 moles of unpaved road.. So ima take it easy for the cbr

You're lucky to live in a state with so many unexplored areas. I would love to be able to explore the Alaskan wilderness, someday I hope I will.

Can't wait to see pics! :) I did a few miles of gravel riding and the cbr seems really unstable. But, the more I rode, the more I got used to it. If you don't get in a hurry, you should be fine. Anyway, looking forward to this!..... :thumbup:

That's pretty killer man. Once I get some more miles under my belt I am planning on making a Anchorage to Homer and then eventually Anchorage to Fairbanks (never even done that in a car) trip.

When you get back I will shoot you a PM. Maybe meet up?

Sounds good ,pm me to meet after.

I've ridden to Homer earlier this season and will be doing another run there for this season at the end of august. If you like we can plan something out . Or I'll let you know what days exactly.

Yeah that would be cool. If you can't tell I am a new rider. Reason I want to do a homer trip as my first "long" trip, is that I have actually driven (car) it probably 500+ times (grew up in Seldovia).

But yeah sounds good, when your back I will shoot you a PM. Good luck on the trip!
