Got Bike will Travel

We picked up our bikes yesterday from the shop, and stated to organize our stuff.

Ali and Husain met a biker named Byron who advised against going to Denali especially since it was overcast and we would not be able to see Mt. McKinley which is the highest peak in North America.

So we decided to take his advice and the advice of Elmer and Sharon Hayes, who were touring on their GS with a sidecar, and went to Valdez.

Although it was at times raining, the scenery on the way to Valdez was breathtaking, especially passing glaciers and passes. At times we wanted to take pictures but couldn't because of the rain.


  1. I loved the scenary. Take care guys and stay warm.

    Salam to all. If your logistics provides for time off, then visit Prince William Sound. This is the place where the famous Exxon Valdez(Exxon Tanker) ricked the environment by way of running aground and spilling some 1.2m barrel of crude oil. Several serious pollution incidents attributed to the development of Marine pollution rules and Exxon Valdez is one of these incidents. Enjoy the ride and the weather. (ما شاءالله )You all look well so keep riding.
