Whitehorse Yukon Canada is hosting a rally from June 23 to June 26. See some of the most beautiful country in the world, and guarantee, the nicest people in the world! I've done the trip through the Yukon and Alaska on 3 occassions. Though it's sponsored by HD. You'll probably find more Wings, besides, it doesn't matter what you ride. Land of the Midnight Sun, you'd wonder how the birds have any sanity. You will look at the clock at 9pm and then again at 3am and you would wonder where the time went because it doesn't get dark!!! Feel the excitement of the old Gold Rush, see the Chilkoot Trail that got them there from Skagway Alasaka. Check out www.rideyukon.com for all the details.

Thats a great trip Kyle. Miles and miles of lovely countryside, great roads and a sedate pace usually. I did that trip a few years back and it seems to last forever. If I can still ride big bikes when I retire then I'd do trips like that all the time. :)

Budegan.......DO NOT WAIT FOR RETIREMENT........DO NOT WAIT!!!!

Did you do the Top of the World Highway out of Dawson City through Action Jackson's, Chicken, and on into Tok Alaska? A road not for the faint of heart, but if your bike survives..:gunhead:...it's worth every bounce, rattle, and shake of every mile!!!! My only regret was when I landed in Fairbanks, I didn't continue up to Prudhoe Bay on the Beaufort Sea/Arctic Ocean. Oh well...I guess that gives me a reason to head back up in June. See North America's highest peak in the Denali Range (Mt.Mckinnley 20,320ft), world's smallest desert at Carcross, Emerald Lake, the deadly Five Finger Rapids that claimed more than onegold seeker,Miles Canyon just outside of Whitehorse.

All kinds of options...Sit in the Hotsprings in Whitehorse,gamble a little in Diamond Tooth Gerties in Dawson City after you put a little stake together from gold panning in the Klondike River, say HI! to the border guard at Boundry, probably been awhile since he saw anyone, have a cinnamon bun the size of a serving platter in Carmacks, take a tundra buggy ride into the icefields of Kluane Park home of Mt.Logan 19,550ft, and home to a perpetual storm that has been raging for centuries, throw the bike on the Ferry in Skagway Alaska, home of scoundrels like Soapy Smith,:cooldevil: and home to hospitality like the Red Onion Saloon, the bordello of the old daysand stop in on some of the islands on the Inside Passage that still have a ton of Russian Heritage...Sitka, Juneau, Wrangel-Petersburgh, Ketchican, and get dropped off in Prince Rupert, Vancouver, or Seattle. You want to know the best part......PACK A TENT....

If you love history, scenery, adventure, and real good people with heart, what can I say.....Go North Young Man!:waving:

Kyle
