    Since we don't get the lovely riding weather that most do, you've got to take full advantage of the weather when it's nice.

    And here on Kodiak, when it's nice...it's N-I-C-E!!!!

    So...I guess this is where I'll post the good - and bad - pictures from riding here on Kodiak in my '07 Ural GearUp.

    Enjoy!

    Okay so it's not a traditional "ride report" - more a of "road and trail report".

    This was taken last year, on Burma Road. Those familiar with kodiak will recognize Barometer Mtn, and parts of Old Woman Mtn.

    GINOURMOUS wind turbine. Three of 'em up here. Look closely and you'll see the Ural at the base. Very cool.
