As a former motorcyclist, I started getting the bug again. This time, started the early planing for a ride from California to Alaska, or from Alaska home. So the first requirement of course is a bike. I'm leaning (no pun intended) toward a used BMW 1150GS, but open to other makes and models (for a few days I was planing on recreating the Sportster from the TV show Then Came Bronson) The other odd question is, ship the bike to Alaska and ride south, or sell it once I'm done with it up there. I'm not sure I have the time for a round trip. Thanks in advance.
