My ride to Alaska in 1998

This is also a picture supplement to my book- Pages 41-51
In 1998 , I decided to do a ride like no other. Miami to Alaska wasn't far enough so I went to up state New York for the Harley Rendezvous first then back down to New Orleans and then out to the Grand Canyon.
Up the Coast of California, camping along the way
stopping at some great vistas of the Pacific Coast
and then Canada. I took a short cut through the Cassier Hwy and rode 750 miles of gravel roads-
and through the Northern Territories of the Yukon
After crossing into Alaska I rode 2000 miles around the interior going to Fairbanks, Anchorage, Seward and the Denali National Park. When I got back to Miami 6 weeks later, I had logged on 17,300 miles. Not a bad trip but I couldn't wait to get started on my next one! These are the pictures for pages 41-51 of  my book, "Bean're Motorcycle Nomad".
