    I have traveled during that time fame many times
    June, July and August is when a lot of riders will go but later in August it's cooling down. Every year the weather varies as to the driest and warmest months. By July/August most of the normal road work should finished.

      Rob, If your leaving Deadwood and head north it would be about 2800 miles to Fairbanks. Take 9-10 300 mile days, spend a week in Alaska and then two weeks getting home to Michigan. You would back home by mid-August.

      I have a thread on here about tips for traveling thru Canada to Alaska. I will be posting an update to that thread as soon as the Alaska ferry system posts their summer schedule for 2020. If you have any questions please post them up and I will try to answer them.

        Our return route would be towards Washington state. Then south along the western coast. Our next Spyder Rally wouldn't be until Oct 1st in Broken Arrow, OK.

          Ok. On your return from Alaska you can turn off the Alcan near Watson Lake and take the Cassiar highway #37 south to #16 then #97 on your way to Seattle.

            I really like this route, we came home this way last time and we plan on going up and back this way this summer! Road was in great shape and little traffic!

                  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.

                  My trip got cancelled. My riding buddy can't make it and my wife doesn't want me to ride it alone.

                          I think we've all got our fingers crossed for this to pass and borders to open. I'm doing secondary plans to stay in Canada and a 3rd plan to stay in the province. I've got 13 provincial parks and I've only stayed at 5 of them.

                              It's not looking good for us heading north. The wife thought she read somewhere the border might be open July 1st. Her and her friends had a trip planned for Nova Scotia, but it looks like her trip is cancelled too. Bud and I have decided to go ahead and wait till next year for Alaska. Hopefully it will open up enough where we can do the Blue Ridge Parkway later in the fall.

                                The 30 day border closure ends on April 19th but the US and Canada are in talks to extend it another 30 days.
