London to Anchorage
Looks like I am going to be ablke to take a break from work as of July for around 6 months.
I want to spend around 4 month on my bike in North America
Was thinking of starting in Anchorage and working down through Yukon and BC into the rest of the US prior to shipping out of the East Coast.
Are shipping costs to Anchorage prohibitive? would I be better off shipping to Vancover?
From reading the site it appears that I won't need a Carnet or International Driving permit - but would these smoooth the way at customs?
Bike question ? I'm on a modified 1200GS ( modified as I have one arm and leg) and its currently running on alloys and road tires. Would it be better to switch to spokes and off road tires - not really looking to spend much time off road - but am unsure of the state of the roads in the far north
Any hints apreciated
