Looks like sleeping in and a late breakfast is gonna pay off. Damp roads but looks like the rain clouds have moved along.

Beautiful ride!

We enjoyed an outstanding ride up north to Talkeetna. It was so warm we sat outside to eat lunch and could take our jackets off and just wear shirts. And - it was warm enough we could roll our shirt sleeves up and get some Vitamin D on our bare arms.

I rode with a group of people with a variety of bikes (no KLRs) and there were no bike issues, like mechanical or electrical problems. I think my #2 DR "plays well with others." Even AlcanRider likes him, although he calls my bike the wrong name.

I also met Drunk Uncle today. He stopped by to say hello before he headed south. I've gone on long, fun, sunny rides the past three weekends. Spring may finally be here! I may have to put my skis up for the season.

Had a great day. Met the Hay Duchess, Agents J&K, and Steve907. I may be bad luck on the other hand. Agent J got a flat while riding with him. Steve got stuck riding I would say about 40 minutes ahead of us, and I had a great day. Steve you sent me the pic, so up it goes!!!

Well my day didn't go as planned. Was awesome to ride with my wife and drunk uncle though. We had some nice new Alaskans stop and load my f8 and haul it to Harley in Soldotna. They were the best. They were happy to loan me some tire spoons and let me use their tire machine. So if down on the peninsula and need anything stop in and ask for Shawn he will make sure your taken care of. Was a good learning experience prepare for everything.

Oh by the way skilak lake loop road is wet and muddy.

We were sitting at the rest area by the bridge waiting for drunk uncle when you went by. Kept picking up your tire tracks on skilak rd. You didn't lose a nail did you? If you did I found it.lol
