Two wheels to the Arctic...An Alaska Travel Blog. Preparation

Fitting the right tires.
Using the hitch mount for the NOMAR tire changer, works well, perfect working height. Two Heidenau K60’s are mounted and balanced.

Two wheels to the Arctic...An Alaska Travel Blog

One month in Alaska.... Barely enough time to make a dent, however, enough time to scratch the surface.  Carried by two Adventure motorcycles, a Triumph Tiger 800 and a BMW F650GS (800) on our journey. Alaska has always been on the list of places to travel across on a motorcycle (my list anyway). There is no better way to experience a country or a continent than by motorcycle and I hope through this blog you will feel like you are a part of our adventure. Not being in a position right now to take on the entire Pan American highway, we decided to bite off a large portion and take on Alaska. Our trip does include the inside passage, for some this is their Alaska trip, for us this is only a small portion of this adventure. We will be traveling through the Yukon, BC, hiking in Denali in the shadow of the highest mountain in the United States, and across the Arctic circle to the shore line of the Arctic ocean. Stay posted, it's gonna be a fun ride!!
