I just completed a 26 day, 10,568 miles trip to Alaska, we went to the Artic Circle, Chicken , rode the Top of the World Highway and came back down BC route 37 to Hyder Alaska, back in the US we rode through the Columbia River Gorge and Hell's Canyon. My CCT turn just over 96,000 miles at trip end, I have now ridden her to and in 49 states, Hawaii being the only place she hasn't been. With me on the trip was two friends, one on a Indian Chieftain and the other on a BMW GS 1200. While my CCT is a great road bike, it is not a good dirt bike, the Dalton Highway to the Artic Circle and the Top of the World highway are mostly gravel and dirt. We rode up the Alcan, which isn't to bad until you get into the Yukon Territory and then the road has lots of broken pavement and gravel patch repairs, that are deep gravel/rock. On the way up I was two up and load, my wife rode with me all the way to Fairbanks, and she flew home from there as I didn't want to try to go to the Artic Circle and the Top of the World two up, they both were trying enough on this big bike as it was. I ran Dunlop Elite 4's, both new starting from Arizona, I changed the front tire in Fairbanks and the rear in Seattle on the way home, had a oil change in Fairbanks also, other than tires, not a problem one with my bike. This was a major bucket list check off for this 65 year old guy.
