I broke my Tib/Fib and ankle in Moab while riding/crashing my 400.

I had planned an Alaska ride and didn't want to miss it. So medical boot
and no rear brake for 8,900 miles. That picture was taken in Fairbanks
just as I was heading to Prudhoe Bay.

If you're really bored here is the RR.

Happy Newyears!

Here a video to get you through the cold times. This is chasing Commander51 in the Stansbury area.

I'll be split boarding tomorrow!

Kick n glide

Not a "ride report" but a "slide report" - This counts since there were only 2 items touching the earth...skis vs wheels...

Since yesterday was the first nice day in a while, Mrs Harcus & I decided to inspect the snow fall above Kamas. The Mrs is not into the downhill thing so we go Kick n Glide n.

This looks to be an acceptable spot....Pine Valley CG....



So, down the hill we go...



Found some winos eating lunch in the camp ground. About 20 in of white stuff on the tables....



The sign says "14 day camping limit". We have to go back to get our extra 13 days...



Nice to be outta the "yellow air" in the valley...

This is good! It provides good Karma! It is little known fact that this first thing to do to a "new" bike is...tip it! It is going to happen, the only question is when. So, git over it!

Also, you have accrued double points! By tipping it in front of Moroni, you are double blessed.

This may keep those big klunky things sticking out of the sides of the engine in one piece for 2 years vs the normal 1 year.

I am not sure of the possible added points by having 2 foreign visitors help pick it up. Maybe this just means the points transfer to EU? Beyond me...

You lucky guy!!!! You will have a good 2010....

PS...and Pluric like the color....his favorite!

That's just like riding with Harley and BMW guys. Everything is
going great then they see each other and have to stop and Butt sniff.
