    What is your route through the states . may I recommend Canada to the UP then M28 to hwy 2 . Lots of nice places to camp and a nice ride along lake Superior . US 2 in MN is 60 to 70 mph speed ND is mostly 70 .

            I had planned on leaving the Salt Lake City area during the last week of June but I'm afraid family obligations are going to prevent departure before July 6th. I'm also thinking on 4 or 5 weeks. I've been reading trip reports and collecting info for several years. It's time to start making some decisions and put a plan together.

                  A buddy and I are looking to take the last week of June, First 2 weeks of July. Leaving Denver.
                  We both own early GL1800s and I have a Aspen Classic. However.
                  On this trip I will be on my BMW R1200GS and he will be on his Africa Twin. We plan to tent camp about 50% of the time
                  Taking a dip in the Arctic Ocean is the goal.

                  Blowing all my vaca time (3weeks) on this one trip. Wife not 100% pleased. Been wanting to see AK for many years. A serious health scare this fall convinced me its time to dig deep in the bucket list.

                        I would love to go but not this year moving. If yo go and if possible can you go by the back of the Sign Forest entrance and see if our sign is there. It is in the shape of Texas with our trike and name Mr. Clean and JoJo on it. Thank you

                            We will be in Deadwood, SD July 12th - 17th for their 3 wheel rally. Has anyone been to AK and back during mid July through end of Aug.? It sounds like most plan their trips starting the first part of June.

                              Rob, most leave then because the weather is milder. That wouldn’t be a problem for y’all in the temps y’all ride in. You might check the long range forecast averages to see if it’s doable.
