Ride to Alaska by motorcycle. “Alaska Prudhoe Bay Highway” is the 5th in my multi episode “Burro Has Three Wheels” DVD series, that circumnavigate the roads of North, Central and South America.
If you're thinking about travel to Alaska by riding a motorcycle or driving a car or RV, this Alaska motorcycle touring DVD will make you smile.
Finishing the ride from Portland, Oregon to Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia, in 2006, the first four episodes in my adventure rider blog and eventually DVD (Mexico, Central America, Colombia / Ecuador & Peru, Chile, Argentina taking me as far south in the world as one could drive) were produced and simply titled “Burro Has Three Wheels”. In June of 2007, I set out to finish my top to the bottom ride of the world, a road trip that would take me to Deadhorse / Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, as far north in the world as one can drive.
“Alaska Prudhoe Bay Highway” riding to Alaska, provides viewers a preview beyond book format to a driving journey through the northwestern portions of Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Yukon Territory and Alaska. This time I am not traveling alone. My old friend Tom and his companion Linda have asked to accompany me. They’re riding two up on a Kawasaki KLR 650, I’m riding a 2005 Ural.
Highways include; US 101 on the Washington Coast, Canada Hwy 1 on Vancouver Island, BC from Victoria, BC to Port Hardy, BC, The Inland Passage along the BC coast, Canada Hwy 16 from Prince Rupert, BC to Kitwanga, BC, Canada Hwy 37 (Stewart-Cassiar) to the junction of Canada Hwy 1 near Watson Lake, YT, Canada Hwy 1 (Alaska Hwy) the Alcan Highwayto the US border, US Hwy 2 to Fairbanks, AK and finally AK Hwy 11 (Dalton Highway-The Haul Road) to Deadhorse / Prudhoe Bay, AK.
This movie documents the reality of three riders traveling together and what they experience. Sit back and enjoy an adventure of a lifetime that includes: weather, road conditions, local people and the terrific music found in the Pacific Northwest. I hope you get as many smiles watching this film as I did making the journey.
Reaching Deadhorse / Prudhoe Bay Alaska, I wasn’t ready to head home just yet, the highway beckoned, and I couldn’t ignore the siren’s call.
So…Burro and I headed east to Goose Bay, Newfoundland / Labrador then on to Key West, Florida. These additional motorcycle travel documentaries comprise episodes 6 & 7. Future episodes are expected to document the entire tracing of the Americas as I ride the eastern coasts of Mexico, Central and South America.

New video equipment sure did a great job of documenting the trip, what to expect, hazards, and places to go. I'm looking forward to the next episodes due out in Dec / Jan of the rest of the 07 trip. Go Gary !!!!
