After camping in Kitwanga at the southern junction of the Cassier Hwy we decided that we were going to try and make it to Jasper that day. The weather started off looking pretty good, but it soon turned to rubbish as we pushed the 850kms from Kitwanga at the bottom of the Cassier Hwy, along…

Our experience of adventure riding in the Yukon … Waking up after the D2D feeling a lot better than we thought we would, we met up with the boys and headed south from Dawson down the Klondike Hwy towards Carmacks. Paved all the way down we chewed up some kms heading south to try and…

Our experience Adventure Riding in Wyoming and Colorado in 2011 … Leaving Idaho we joined the Continental Divide trail in Wyoming and made our way out into the remote desert/prairies that were full of antelope, superbly camouflaged and waiting to jump out in front of you. The tracks were amazing, as was the scenery and…

When I was planning my Ride Right Down trip and looking to the Alaska Regional forum on ADV Rider for inspiration and advice I couldn’t help but realise there was to be a big adventure rider gathering in Dawson City, Yukon, around the time that we would be coming through the region. The ‘Dust 2…

Getting a slow start to the day, including the traditional pancake breakfast, we headed into Yellowstone again on 5 July to face the rest of America that were visiting that day. If we thought the traffic was bad the day before it was twice as bad today. Passing RVs and cars made for a good…

I reckon we have a bit to learn from the yanks about being hospitable to strangers. Perhaps its a mix of the culture over here, the fact that we are travellers on a big journey and the fact that we are on bikes. I have always found that whilst travelling, when you are in your…

After our run up to Prudhoe Bay we had a couple of extra days around Fairbanks to service our bikes and catch up on errands. Not real exciting but these kinds of days are pretty rare on a schedule so we made the most of them. The reason we had a bit of time up…

Read more about riding Alaska’s Dalton Highway >> Riding Alaska’s Dalton Highway up into the Arctic has always been a goal of mine for some reason. I’m not sure why but I guess it has to do with the remoteness of the place and it being one of the farthest places away from home. That’s one…
