ADVMoto Magazine contributor Christina Tkacs came to us last summer to get outfitted with a rental motorcycle. We set her and her riding partner up with one of the water-cooled BMW R 1200 GS’s out of the MotoQuest fleet and off they went to explore our great state on two wheels. Below is an excerpt from her article. Be sure to grab your copy of this issue for the full story!
“We camped alongside the active Root Glacier stemming from impressive Mt. Blackburn. Dusk is the darkest the sky gets during the summer in McCarthy, so we explored the abandoned mining town of Kennecott late into the evening when only the most fearless of tourists were out. Low shadows and the cool mountain air brought a sense of eerie abandonment to the area.”
You too can plan your own Alaska motorcycle adventure! The Alaska riding season is short (May-September) and we often have a shortage of bikes, so make your request soon to ensure we have a motorcycle for you this summer!
