Now, that would be a bike to do it on!..... with a side hack and a trailer camper!!!! That would be the life!!!!.... but I'd beef up the suspension with one of those progressive systems before I did it again!.....

....or one of those BMW Adventure bikes..... I saw A LOT of them up in Alaska!

I've been on alot of road trips on my bikes over the years and road many
1000 mile days. I know what it means to do trips like that.

I would of been more inpressed if you would have done it on your
Sportster.

Good job. And i would like to see the map when you get it done
