Deadhorse is home to the largest oil field in North America and has become a pilgrimage of sorts for Adventure Riders. "Adventurist motorcyclists know that reaching Deadhorse, Alaska, is an accomplishment on most of their personal check lists" - Dr. Frazier. Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay is located about 1200 miles south of the North Pole and 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle. The road is a mix of paved sections, about 50%. In between are gravel, mud, broken pavement, dust, construction works, wooden bridges, and on many days, snow and ice. There are sections with no connections for cell phones and the 240-mile stretch between Coldfoot and Deadhorse with no services at all so bring extra fuel!
