People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.

I'm SURE Jeff is correct, BUT you have to ride thru either Alberta or BC to get to Alaska (UNLESS you take a ferry, which defeats the purpose...), and the weather in BOTH ain't fine, and won't be for several months.

I'm heading that way in July, going south first though.. down the BRP and then onto New Orleans. Then heading north into the Rockies and just going wherever I feel like finally ending in Washington..
