Nice Little Sunday Fall Ride Down Turnagain Arm
 
Man, it's gettin chilly outside! Almost time to stud up the KLR and start ridin with the electric Scorpion visor and Gerbing's electric socks.

I was kinda bummed that I wasn't able to ride in last weekend's good weather. I was showing a cousin from Metlakatla around on his first visit to Southcentral. He was VERY impressed with our lovely area! :wink:

I was REALLY hoping it was gonna be sunny and actually get up to the nice warm 40 degree's that was forecasted. :lol2 Wanted to get some more photos of the Duc in front of some of the pretty trees. Oh well, maybe next year. Because of the weather conditions I decided I'd better take the hot grip'd KLR which is also a bit smaller and more nimble JUST in case I did happen to hit some ice. :eek1

Just yesterday I was reminiscing with a fellow rider about the good 'ol days around Anchorage during which I mentioned the old Rabbit Hutch. Not sure how much longer this sign's gonna remain standing so I thought today might be a good day for a photograph, especially with the pretty snow covered peaks in the background. :wink:

Potter Marsh may soon be frozen enough for some skating. Dogbrother Comet loves chasing a hockey puck! :D

Always enjoy see'n my shadow on the rocky cliffs along the Arm.

Turned around just past Indian as the sun was dippin behind the mountains.
Off yonder in the distance across the Inlet lies the sleepy little town of Hope.

Ah, the pretty leaves I was looking for all lit up nice and bright by the setting sun. :evil

Yep, the setting sun. Pretty. :D

Remember me saying it was chilly? A thermometer said 25 on it as I was gettin close to home.
ALMOST time to break out all that cold weather gear. :lol3 See ya, Mark H.

Good to see you're still riding...Wish that I could say the same...Oh well, next season will soon be upon us, and I'm planning on a Freddie Spencer school adventure with the girlfriend in early spring...

Yo Bad Bob... how's the new desk working out? Hope all's well. If you want to take a winter bike for a spank give me a holler. The tranny will have winter shoes on soon.

You got the number, bud. Holler if you get to jonesin' but it ain't like no summer scoot. There's nothing quite like pulling up in Girdweed for a snort of coffee in January though.

Nothin.

The studded tires are being put back on the KLR as we speak! :thumb

Just another way to have a little bit of fun in our winter wonderland! :evil

A big thank you for all the compliments on the photos, guys. What was really crazy were some of the responses I got from a few folks in the States on some other msg boards about the Rabbit Hutch photo. It reminded them of dinner dates and good times back in the day with ol gf's or ex's. :lol3

Rock on Duc!
 
Great shots.
I know it might not make sense to all of you out there, but I really miss Alaska. The pictures made both MaGus and I, a little homesick.
Thanks.

I am almost ready to KLR my stable.

A winter steed could be enough to make life much more interesting.

See you all soon

Oak Creek Canyon is awesome.

Ride safe and keep in touch.........:clap

Sounds like were going to have quite a "KLR Crew" here in the GWN. Looking to add one to the stable myself. Trying to decide if I want an '08 or get a used one off Craigslist and save some coin.
"A pair and a spare" in the garage sounds about right. :ricky :ricky :ricky
