There are a few diehards who ride all year long up here. Mostly on Ural 2-wheel drive side car rigs, but I friend of mine with a KLR650 and studded tires does it too.
Eagle River, Alaska
Slippery, muddy roads....that I can handle. Snow and ice is a whole different ball game!
In Chicken, Alaska...on the road back from Dawson City, Yukon.
