New Yorker riding from Juneau Alaska back to New York about 12 years ago

About 12 years ago, a friend and I rode down the Alaskan hwy. Along the way, before the Canadian border, I believe, we caught up to a middle-aged rider heading toward New York. He was a retired sargent with the New York police department and was riding for pledges toward a charity, I believe his name was Bill. It was his first long ride but he seemed to be doing well, even though he wasn't properly equiped with riding clothes. I remember he had many bells on his boots because people had warned him of grizzley bears.
Is that rider a member of this forum, or does anyone know of him? I would like to know how he made out....if he was able to complete his ride successfully, he certianly had a lot of enthusiasm and a great attitude.
