About John Reuter

AlaskaHello, Back in January 2011, I was 49 and diagnosed with Macular Degeneration in both my eyes. my left eye being the worst not being able to see out of it. My right eye was ok but I could not see straight lines any more. Knowing that time was not on my side I decided to go on the ride of a lifetime while I still could. I have traveled over 100,000 miles on my Harley over the years all around this great country we live in and one day make that big trip to Alaska. So I decided to do it now even with the challenges of using one eye. These are the stories and pictures I took on the way as I left Long Island N.Y. on my solo trip to Alaska and back.

    WOW, I.m sorry to hear about your condition but glad you got this trip in and well documented. I’m gmc on the forum and have been trying to decide if I want to do this since I’m now 67 and you just never know what life throws at you. I’m close to 500k on motorcycles.

    I hope the best for your health.

    What an enormous trip. Pictures are breathtaking. Don’t give up on hope. My days of riding are short as well, I have cancer, but never giving up. Good luck.
