Alaska

Here are a few photos from the two trips to Alaska that I’ve been lucky enough to have made over the years …

I took the first trip with my friend James Mensing in July of 2007. We went to Fairbanks, Denali, and the Kenai Peninsula, on streetbikes, me on my 1988 BMW K75s, and James on his 2007 BMW GSA 1200, which BMW guys will tell you is not a streetbike … ha.

The next year, 2008, I returned on a 2001 Kawasaki KLR 650. I wanted to get up to the Arctic Circle and ride some of the long dirt highways up north. I went to the Dust to Dawson motorcycle rally in Dawson City, which takes place in front of the Downtown Hotel. Lots of fun!
