Creamy or Crunchy?

By MotoQuest founder Phil Freeman

They say that there are two kinds of peanut butter: creamy and crunchy. Some prefer one or the other, but I have come to terms with the fact that I love both. When it comes to riding, some prefer pavement, and others prefer dirt surfaces. Again, I have to admit that I love both. Half of the highway system in Alaska is dirt, so why limit yourself?

Our Alaska season is ramping up, and indeed, it will be a busy one. We don’t apply guide assignments until we have confirmed trips, so last week we went over our Alaska tour schedule. Turns out, I will be leading two rides in the early part of the Alaska season, and I would love to invite you on both.

I am excited to be leading the Kenai Peninsula Adventure at the end of May. This shorter all-paved ride features the condensed yet stunning natural grandeur that only the Kenai Peninsula can deliver. If you are into mountains, lakes, rivers, fjords, glaciers, and quaint harbor towns, this Kenai ride is for you. There is also a free day in Homer, Alaska, where you can go Halibut Fishing, riding or just count the Bald Eagles on the Spit. We still have a couple of spots left for this one, so if this tickles your fancy, welcome aboard!

Shifting gears to the “crunchy” side of things, I will also be leading our May 30th Prudhoe Bay Adventure. This ride is no Sunday drive: it’s for those who want to venture as far away from civilization as possible without going into outer space. This is a ride of a lifetime and a bucket list item for many a motorcycle traveler. We still have a couple of spots open for this one also, and it would be a sincere pleasure to ride with you all the way to the Arctic Ocean. Want to come count caribou?

Double Down?

These two trips can also be taken one after the other, so if you want the creamy with the crunchy, that is no problem.

Regardless of your riding style, the most important thing is to get out there and explore! We at MotoQuest love to ride, and like nothing more than enabling you to do the same. Feel free to reach out to us if you get that urge to move around.

Alaska is open for business and welcoming riders to explore the Last Frontier on two wheels this summer, and I certainly look forward to meeting you when you get here!
