Dr. Gregory Frazier will be presenting at the Alaska Motorcycle Night in Chaing Mai, Thailand on February 16, 2011 at 6:30pm at Rider’s Corner.
The first motorcyclists to ride from Alaska to the “Lower 48″ accomplished their amazing feat in 1938 on two BSA motorcycles. Their adventure took them over six months to complete, a motorcycle ride that today can be easily accomplished in four-five days.
Slim Williams and John Logan piloted, pushed and pulled their 1938 BSA motorcycles through deep Alaska bush, floated them across streams and drove the last 600 miles with their motorcycles lashed together side by side so their dog could ride on a platform between the two.
Famed Golden Triangle motorcycle driver, Dr. Gregory W. Frazier, will present pictures and a film of the incredible 1938 Alaska adventure. “Dr. Greg” is a well-known author, writer and moto-journalist who has traveled to and from Alaska 27 times and ridden the treacherous Dalton Highway to Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay on 10 of those adventures. His bestselling book, ALASKA BY MOTORCYCLE and accompanying DVD are known amongst many Alaska bound adventure riders as the “bible” on how to prepare for and successfully complete a ride to the furthest points north and northwest on the North American continent. Frazier has been recognized as “America’s #1 extreme adventure rider” for his five circumnavigations of the globe by motorcycle and numerous adventures spanning nearly 50 years and over one million miles of racing and riding motorcycles literally to the ends of the earth. www.trail-dust.com and alaskamotorcycle.blogspot.com is where some of Dr. Frazier’s Alaska works can be found. As a Contributing Editor for MOTORCYCLE USA Frazier has often written about riding in Southeast Asia and specifically Thailand. He was quoted as saying when asked about extreme motorcycle adventures in Thailand’s Golden Triangle, “I hate adventure that has anything to do with snakes or sharks!”
