Riding to Alaska

Not sure if this topic belongs here.

I want to ride up to Alaska next year, and I am wondering if anyone has rented a bike to do this? I live on the East Coast so I'd like to just rent in Washington, ride up to Alaska and then fly out.

Looking at this rental company. No one-way fees and they have 1200GS bikes available.

Anyone done this ride? 100% paved?

I have no idea on the rental bikes but I have ridden to Alaska twice.
Paved roads all the way if you choose. If you have 3 to 4 weeks why miss the great American West? Watch the enclosed video and see what you will be missing.

If you feel you can't ride dirt go to BMW's Enduro training course in South Carolina and then follow it up with Jimmy Lewis's course down in Nevada. Or just go to Jimmy's course and you will be looking for dirt.
You could ride up from lets say Seattle and then float with the bike back down.
