Jpaige,
Do you think a C50 would make the trip? My dad, cousin and I are thinking of going. Possibly my brother also. If not, how far could the C50 go?

The Alcan is 100% paved, you can get all the way to Fairbanks with no trouble. Besides road construction. We chose less traveled, and less paved routes whenever possible.

If you're serious, buy The Milepost. It's a yearly publication with all the road information on Western Canada and Alaska.

Thanks. I'm serious. Probably on Rebels though. Make my cousin drag the trailer behind his venture.
Wow!!!!!

I've ridden

I've ridden all over the NC/TN/GA mountains on my old Rebel. Even taken it on trips to SC, FL and NC. I changed the sprocket on the back to lower highway RPM's, and put a better seat on it. If you can call a C50 seat an upgrade anyway. I also put hard bags, sissy bar and windshield, and drilled the exhaust and air intake to let it breathe better. Had no problems running slab speeds when I needed to. Ran 75-85 MPH with ease. I used to joke that at 65 it sounded better than my C50. Got great gas mileage also. As high as 95mpg, but mostly 60-75. That was my old 1986. I wanted something newer before I started going for LONG rides!

It wasn't as rainy, but it was cold. way colder than even above the circle.

I'll try and get one more day up today. The next day has probably the most amazing pics of the trip

julian, every year here, there are people who ride their cruisers to Sturgis and back. I don't see anything wrong with a Vole or C-50 for the trip.
