Who's rode to Prudhoe Bay?

The gears are grinding again. I did a Coast to Coast trip in May while I was home from Deployment and a trip to the Arctic Circle it ticking away in my head.

Curious if anyone here has made the trip to Deadhorse Camp, Alaska. If so I would like to see routes you took, places of interests, camp info, fuel info, time to go, time it took, border crossings, etc.

Things are very early in development so there is plenty of time to get organized.

Pic from the trip in May.


You can see more photos on my build thread.

everyone's opinion differs slightly , but to me with a bike there is only a two or three month window for the best odds of the weather to be in your favor

mid May till first of August or so

gas for the most part isn't an issue , there were a few times it got iffy , you may in a remote area have to wait for a station to open , best bet is to get gas every time you see a station , even if you've only ridden fifty miles

Is there anything on the bike that you wish you had, or even something you felt was a nuisance?

Here's a detailed story of another RG member, Shrug, who did this run. Pretty interesting read.
