    :nono Don’t encourage ‘em! We already have too many people here now. Way too many to suit me & a lot of others.
    Even this guy that got here pretty late IMO. :pot

    That’s what they have been doing to Anchorage, my hometown. I can’t ride, shoot or play in the places I used to. Even in some places 40- 50 or more miles from town.

    It's a lot like this .... :cry

    Thank you for all the replies!
    I've been meaning to get on here but the bike is a higher priority at the moment. I just gotta finish changing the oil in the forks and I should be out of here by Saturday. :nod
    I serviced the rear swingarm, installed heated grips, changed both tires, changed front and back sprocket with new chain for quieter highway speeds. :clap
    A few late nights, but there all gonna pay off as soon as I get on the road.

    Brendon: I'm going to try to find time to write a cover letter up for you tonight. :deal

    And to this guy:
    My route is actually more like 3,000 miles because I'm riding along the Oregon coast like I've always dreamed, and doing 300 mile days. I wish it was single track though!

    My goal is to get up there before the fourth of July so I can celebrate with friends, and light fireworks while its light out! :rofl

    Don't have to.

    A simple application is more than sufficient for the "industry" you play in

    Okay, okay. Maybe I did go a little too far on that last post. For that, I apologize.

    And, yes, I did have a great day yesterday. I'm addicted to using my new JD tractor on my land (not to be confused with my HD with Russian farm tractor technology)
