Alaska Motorcycle Adventures allows our motorcycles to travel as far as the Arctic Circle on the Dalton Highway at no extra charge. Travel to Prudhoe Bay (Deadhorse) is difficult and dangerous especially if you are ill equipped or the weather turns bad. We have seen the results of rider inexperience and poor decision making first hand.

Road conditions and weather can vary significantly from day to day. While one rider may find sunny skies, dry roads, dust and minimal road maintenance or construction, the next rider may encounter rain, snow, strong cross-winds, miles and miles of construction with the road beds graded after applying 1000's of gallons of water, a recent application of calcium chloride and extreme truck traffic. The list goes on…

Due to the endless daylight that Alaska and the Yukon Territory experience in the summer, some riders will be tempted to make this trip in just a day or two. Imagine what can happen when you mix extremely poor road conditions with an extremely tired rider. Riding motorcycles is risky enough without setting yourself up (or others you are riding with) for potential disaster. Many riders have pushed past their limits and have experienced severe injury and worse. 


We do understand the desire to travel to the end of the road however road conditions are extremely hard and brutal on our motorcycles. When we know this is your destination, the $650 surcharge covers motorcycle preparation ensuring that the motorcycle’s wear parts are new or like new condition, the motorcycle is serviced and has excellent tires for the trip. Upon return from remote destination trips the motorcycle is out of service for two to three days while it is cleaned and serviced for the next renter. 

The mandatory minimum 6 day rental period is an attempt to prevent riders from ‘over-riding’ road and weather conditions and to also encourage renters to slow down and enjoy a safe and successful ride to the end of the road and back.

You might be thinking ... how would they know if I drove the motorcycle to the end of the road and back? It would be extremely difficult to hide that much wear and tear, missing tire tread, residual calcium chloride and dust. Trust us when we say that we are very concerned for your safety and we do not want you to be riding a motorcycle that is not prepared for that type of journey!
