Just so everybody understands, this is the pinnacle, a touring version is ridiculous.

This bike does give the opportunity to do some interesting exploring, unique bike for sure, when properly set up.

So did you do the Alaska ride or not? I can't find any follow-ups.

Where in Alaska do you plan to travel to?
Between Fairbanks & Prudhoe Bay there is nearly 1000 miles, both are in Alaska.

Personally, I plan to ride to Prudhoe Bay on a Honda CT110 or something light and simple with minimal speed.

Alaskan highways are not known for pavement. Lighter the bike easier to maneuver and sustain the bumpy roads.
I would probably try and fit a car tire onto the Hornet's rear wheel for Alaska trip.

This is what I imagine what majority of the ride to Prudhoe Bay, AK looks like, but with much worse road surface (non-pavement):
