    Avner

    Many thanks to Twisted Throttle for taking the time to respond to my problem. I am glad to report that following a bit of help from a friend, Bill Eppley, I was able to get the 12mm. X 90mm. screw...

    Do them both

    Re the Google map data, I would suggest that you go north by one route and south by the other. The Cassiar Highway is worth the effort. It is narrower than the Alcan, more curvy, especially as you...

    going to Anchorage

    The issue of pavement will depend on the route you choose. If you go northeast and pick up the Alaska Highway at Dawson Creek, then you will be on pretty good pavement virtually the whole distance...

    ALCAN and Cassiar conditions

    I am aware that it is early in the season for someone to have ridden to and from Alaska on the ALCAN and Cassiar from the lower 48, but just in case someone has done this, I wonder if he/she could...

    I feel like an idiot asking this question, but the Haynes manual doesn't help, and all my reasoning is getting me nowhere. How do I remove the front turn signal stalks from a 99 R11GS? This is the...
