Hey, Skip. I rode an 08 to AK in 2010 then took it to Key West in 6 days. My Lab rode many a mile on a plywood platform. He is 14 now and does not want to break in another KLR. My new KLR is a 2004 and I took my GF and younger dog on a ride this past weekend.

Alaska is the number one adventure destination for us down here in the contiguous 48 states and you live right there. Lucky bum!
