5.0 out of 5 starsThe #1 book in preparation for a motorcycle trip to Alaska.23 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Dr. Frazier covers all the essentials in preparation for a motorcycle trip to Alaska. His book is full of helpful hints ranging from what to take to where to gas-up. The book is compact and easy to carry in your tank bag. Alaska by Motorcycle is an easy and enjoyable read. I read several other books about traveling to Alaska but found Alaska by Morotcycle the most complete and accurate guide as to what to expect when traveling by motorcyle. Another book I found helpful was The Alaska Highway, An Insider's Guide (revised edition) by Ron Dalby. I disgarded the Mile Post half-way through the our 3 week trip and relied on the books by Dr. Frazier and Ron Dalby. I believe that Dr. Frazier has another book about motorcycling through Europe which will undoubtedly inspire future motorcycle adventures.

3.0 out of 5 starsIt deserves more credit..15 Jun 2000

...than I am giving it, because it gives a detailed description of "how to.." drive through Alaska. It even has little maps, and gives all possible helpfull advice. It doesnt tell much of a story though, and should rather be used as a reference for your trip.

I was very disapointed with this book. I felt that it was way too expensive and very outdated. The book takes about an hour to read, as 2/3 of the book is old black and white photos. There may be more value, if you are planning to ride specific routes as detailed in the book, provided that there have been no changes in them over the past decade (unlikely).
