A few years ago my wife and I flew to Alaska and rented a bike and tour'd the area (this way we we were refreshed right from the beginning of our trip, and not all tired out from riding many miles, just to get there, and had to remember that after the "tour vacation" we didn't have the long ride back as well..
YOUR GOING TO HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME!
Alaska was very clean, littering is a major NO NO...
You got to ride the Danalli (spelling) Trail........ very beautiful!
I can't remember having any "gas getting" problems, but maybe carry a small amount of fuel with you in a leak proof container may be an idea.....( just thinking)
last winter I flew there again BUT just snow skied the whole week, didn't do any driving that week..
YOUR GOING TO HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME! Oops did I just repeat myself??
have a wonderful time, ENJOY!
I believe the ride there and back will be at least half the fun. If you have a limited time, I can see flying in and renting a bike, but I'm retired and so are most of the riders with me. We enjoy the ride. We plan to have a wonderful time.
