If you want to get some D2D experience, check out the Slilak Loop road. If you have anything other than slicks on your CBR, that is. Unless it is freshly graded. Or better yet, give me jingle let's go for a ride!!!

What is this Slilak road you speak of and where is it? I think I am game for this ride, especially if it is south of here.

I think he meant Skilak Lake Loop . The l is next to the k on my keyboard must have been a typo.

yup I had drunk fingers this morning. Skilak Lake Loop Road East Junction (Mile 58)It's a 19-mile loop provides access to Skilak Lake and several campgrounds, and links up with the Sterling further west. It is all dirt/gravel. For the most part is a decent road, except after it is freshly graded.

Rode out to Portier Glacier again down Girdwood. it was a nice ride. cloudy cool, little traffic.

Meet another buddy at the Girdwood tesero who just rode back from Seward. road condition was great that way as well.

Well I am heading south tomorrow morning and very good possibility I am going to ride that lake road. I don't want to misspell it again. Then decide what I will do after that. Got the code cleared from my bike and testing the thread sealant on the oil pan bolt before its to late to repair before D2D. If it throws codes before leaving town, will be on the KLR.

Nutty this is the guy that is using his phone for gps he said that they don't have any maps for Canada but there is only one road you have to worry about, pretty hard to get lost
Hey I just saw Dom.... I think. He was headed to Kenai on the Spur road. Then I'm pretty sure I saw him headed mack towards Cooper Landing about an hour and half ago. I guess he didn't want to venture to Homer... too bad

i may do the same thing, I might even throw some stuff on my bike so if I want / need to camp out, I can. I think Sunday is gonna be wet by the looks of things, so might as well be riding home instead of into it. I'd like to try that Skilak lake loop road also.don't remember if I've ever done that before.

Thanks for the update Aufevermike, that had to be him. I checked his spot he went Homer and then to Seward and it looks like he's pretty close to Girdwood now. He said he was having some mechanical problems. And was supposed to check in with the Ural dealer after he made the trip to Homer. Only time will tell
