Pre Sturgis 2013

  • July 26, 2013 · 6:00 AM

Pre Sturgis Bike Rally. The rally this year is August 5th thru the 11th. As usual we will make our trip the week before. We are planning to leave Baytown friday July the 26. I have secured my lodging this year at the Deadwood Gulch Resort for 6 night s starting Sunday Night July 28th. If anyone wants to go but needs to be home Monday August 5th for work Nancy will be leaving Friday morning August 2nd to return to Baytown. I will leave Sturgis Sat morn August 3rd for Alaska. The image is the Basic Route going to Alaska. This will include riding the Going to the Sun Hwy in Glacier Nat Park riding thru Banff and of course the Alaska Highway. This would include a visit to Hyder Alaska,and if is is fairly dry A trip over the tip of the world highway thru Chicken Alaska., Fairbanks, Denali and a couple of days  in Haines Alaska before heading Home. The whole trip if Alaska is included will be 4 to 4.5 weeks. . A bike trip to Alaska is very grueling. Currently there are 3 of riding north. I will be willing to take up to a total of 6. If interested please get with me soon. You will have to be approved by me to join this ride with such things as health, motorcycle, and riding experience and emergency plans. This is a grueling ride and there will be some long days in the saddle. This will be my 3rd ride up so I know what I am talking about.

The trip back will hang on the west side going into Hyder Alaska to watch the Grizzly bears feed on the salmon, a ride thru the Fraiser valley and into Whistler. Back in the us we will tour Mt Ranier, Hwy 101  and 1 on the west coast, Yosemite, the north rim of the Grand Canyon and Zion. The cost of the trip is expected to be 4k to 6k dollars plus the cost of a set of tires. The trip will cover aprox 12k miles from here and back.

    Truly the trip of a lifetime. The riders saw more on this one trip than most people see in a lifetime of vacations.
