Hello from the middle of Alaska

Hi folks, I'm John from Tanana, Alaska. It's a remote village in the central part of the state where the Yukon and Tanana rivers meet. Our only access is by river or plane. We are 230 miles downriver from Fairbanks.

I just purchased a red 2010 YTZ 1000 with a TJD tracks installed. I never sat in the machine, let alone drove it. I'll be flying into Fairbanks this weekend to pick it up and thought about riding it the 230 miles down river to Tanana.

Option B would be to trailer it on a cr*ppy road to Manley, Alaska and drive it 70 miles down river to Tanana.

What ya folks think I should do?

Trailer that thing as far as possible AlaskaJohn. Driving 230 miles in the cold and remote areas of Alaska on tracks or tires for that matter, not a good idea... Just my opinion.

Welcome to the the family. I would trailer it as far as you can. I would hate for the first ride of 230 miles to get off on the wrong foot.

Double what Soazcat said, but seriously 230 miles on a brand new machine is a long way. do cell phones work up there? Be a crappy place to break down on maiden voyage.
