Cry More Freaking Snow!

Snow and 30*F in Fairbanks today...

This slow spring break up is killing me. We get two steps forward, ride a few miles, get excited and wake up to snow. Twice now I've been really ready to rock and roll and blammo! Ma'Nature flips us the bird.

Nice
I really liked the rear view on top of helmet, as it seems to really display the 1080p at it's best, and there isn't that much movement left and right.

I've quite a bit of wasted gigs of hero movies

The rear shots were beautiful, thanks for sharing

Thanks for the stoke. The sun's out and the roads are clearing up here. Still cool though... like 25*F

They keep telling me it's going to warm up...

Nothing higher than 37*F on the Wunderground Forecast for the next week.

And snow in the forecast for Sunday and Monday.

When I lived in Fairbanks in Shannon park. I would start chipping ice out to trainer gate. As soon as it was clear enough I would ride. I remember going by the Alaska club at -3 on my custom chopper. Time to get out bud or you will go insane. Be careful and have fun. Might ride up when I get back from prudhoe will have to grab a beer.

Finally made it to the pavement today! Took the 450 out first then came back and took out the 1150. The wind was screaming pretty good. There was a tree blown down on Willow Creek Parkway that spanned the full width of the road. Thought I was going Trials riding but there were a few passable spots where the tree broke into pieces. Just goes to show you never know what's around the next corner. Lots of sand and water and other hazards still on the back roads. Just glad the ice is finally gone.

Talking nuttyu checking from Eureka...

alright lad, i took off this morning to eureka, was on the road by 10AM,

as soon as i hit the highway, i knew something was wrong .. it was going to be a windy ride. almost thought about canceling it. but neh.. kept on riding.


exit off and tool the old glen, towards the AK raceway. road condition on that run was okay. the roads was still wet . but not ice up. there was also shadow
areas that had snow patches slushy version. im assuming it snowed the night.

fuel up in Palmer, and headed to Eureka.. traffic was great, had the road to myself.. and again when i passed Sutto, there was still leftover snow from that night, nothing crazy , just the old slush ,then there was also another good stretch about 20 miles before eureka.

....fast forward.. on the way back by 1:40 ish, all the snowed had melted and the roads was great..

Caution. not only snow. but when passing the SLIDE AREA, watch out. there was rocks falling down and some left on the middle of the highway when i was heading there, when coming back , looked like someone had cleaned it.



ill let the pictures do the talking..

Great pictures Nu

Couple three years ago I spent a long weekend there snow-machining, decided going up the following weekend and there was a boat in the parking lot. I knew it was time to stop snowmachine for the season

Sort of like seeing that sportbike in the parking lot
