Alaska ride

I rode my 1200GSA from Tracy to Dead Horse / Pruhoe bay last July. It took me 9 days to get up there. Then rode for another 3 weeks. Itís awesome and thereís plenty of great roads in British Columbia.

If you can't do it, let me know. I'll go get it for your friend for the cost of a one-way plane ticket.

That's not said to be rude or silly or in jest. It's a point about how awesome riding a motorcycle a long ways in places you've never been is worth every bit of effort and money to do it.

(But seriously though, I'll do it! And I'm negotiable on the plane ticket.)

If you are normal size then it's ok to do a long ride on someone else's bike. If you are 6'5" like me not so much. The bike has to fit your size or it becomes pure torture.
