Riding Yet?

Out of curiousity, how many have been out on the roads so far?

Got to ride to Anchorage two weekends ago (on the Suzuki), and took a little 100 mile spin on the KLR one evening last week. It will be a while before I get the Wing back on the road - still have some final work to do on the rear suspension, and it is low on the priority list right now.

On the ADVRider forum, we're making plans for a get together for some BBQ at Cantwell next weekend, if you'd like to meet some non-Wing riders from Anchorage and Fairbanks (and places in between) c'mon along. I'll post details if anyone is interested.

Hope to get in some longer rides within the state this summer. Promised my cousin I'd take her down to Homer on the Wing, and she hasn't started nagging me, but she has reminded me a time or two. ;)

One more checking in. Took the old Kaw out couple of weeks ago and the Wing out last week. Drove the Wing and took my wife to Settlers Bay golf coarse for dinner last week. Beautiful view of the mountains.

I'm sure wishing I had something to ride here in King Cove.The weather has been the best I've ever seen for the last 9-10 days.
I hear ya Jeff! It has a exceptionally nice so far this spring.

I tell you what...I will put a few miles on mine today in your name. ;)
It is a little breezy right now, but there isn't a cloud to be seen anywhere

Some day you might be able to ride clear over to Cold Bay (not that I can think of any reason you would want to :frown:)... as long as you can outrun the bears. :lol:

It's not about the destination,it's about the ride!;)

That is getting to be a lot closer to becoming a reality.
I've been thinking about bringing a dual sport here.There is one guy in town with a Harley.

I don't think you ever told me what you were doing when you were out this way..

You'll be the one riding when it rains. :lol:

Working for the state. Back then I was maintenance foreman for the Aleutian Region School District. Had my office in Cold Bay, and the only time I got to King Cove was on my way to Belkofski, which I understand is abandoned now. Got some great photos of the inside of the Russian Orthodox church there. In every village up and down the chain they all said that the Belkofski church had the largest and best collection of icons from the old days. Some day I'll have to dig those photos out and put them into digital format as I've been saying for the last 10 years.

Ya,I will put on my Grunden's and deck boots and go for a ride!

You are correct,Belkofski is abandoned.When i started here in 1986,there were still two families living there,but they are gone now.
I know they brought the church bells froim the Orthodox church over here,but don't know about anything else.The church here is pretty run down.I think it's mostly the older people that attend,and they are dieing off.
