I've been checking out the Aerostich Darien Light jacket and pants that you recommend.  Boy, they are pricey but from everything that I've read the quality is exceptional.  I wear a 46 or 48 coat so I'm assuming that's an XL?   It looks like a guy might pick up a good used one on eBay but I haven't seen my size on there yet. 

There Combat Light boots look pretty good too. 

Is there anything better than the Aerostich that's out there?

I want to thank everyone who has replied. It makes it all worthwhile.  I hope people enjoyed it.

Cowboy, as far as the coat and jacket. I'm happy with the Aerostich stuff and I would buy them again. ( I would get the AD-1's as they fit more like jeans , but for $300+, what I have is just fine.). But you can check this forum for advice on clothing.  http://www.advrider.com/forums   I have found a lot of helpful info there.

WOW, Thank you for sharing all this, what a trip, the pictures and the comments were awesome.  If you had this to do again would you travel alone or would you have another bike or 2 with you?

X 2

Perhaps too late to get one but you may want to consider one of these - Saddlebag Gas Tank - One gallon.  One of my buds on our journey had one and he needed it! 



yep my friend to!

Just saw this question.  It depends. I've done both types of long trips and I enjoy the solitude.  It seems like, as I get older, I enjoy and need some time alone to readjust the clock, to let the voices stop, and allow the colors to come out.  That way I can go at my own pace and enjoy what I want to enjoy. Get up early in the morning, without a conference the night before to find out when all the guys want to leave.  Eat when I'm hungry and not have to decide which restuarant we eat at.  Stop riding when I'm tired and not have to choose from multiple motels.  As long as you can block out of your mind what might happen if you break down in the middle of no where, alone, then for me, it's kinda fun to do a solo trip.  I had a trip to SE United States planned for this summer- 2015. One guy backed out and another decided to go see his daughter in Brazil, so I'm going alone again and looking forward to it.

To answer your question: If going to Alaska again, since there is only one main road to get there, it would be fun to go with someone else, let them lead and live the trip through their eyes.

My little group has a rule.  Whoever is leading stops whenever and in general goes wherever and decides basically when to stop unless somebody voices an opinion one way or the other.  The main rule is:  if you criticize the leader to harshly, YOU'RE the new leader!
