I can't understand this obsession with clocking miles up

Not really an obsession. We decided to go to Alaska to see my wife's sister. Got three choices; Take the Dodge Cummins, get on an airplane and fly there, or take the bikes. We took the bikes. It's a beautiful ride.

My question---6300 miles in 9 days....means back to back 700 mile days...on sometime questionable roads and weather conditions?

On the way up we did 1330 miles on day one, 990 miles on day two. Averaged about 400 miles a day for the last two days.

On the way back we did 600 miles the first two days before my wife had a flat front tire 20 miles NW of Fort Nelson. Then we made 400 miles on day three, 600 miles on day four and a little over 1,000 miles on day 5.

The alcan is actually not a "questionable" road. It's in better shape than most of the roads in the US, and in far better shape than any of the freeways in the US. Weather conditions - we've ridden in way worse.
