    Friday Night Fatty's​


    Will start at Mile 4 Knik Goose Bay (KGB) Tesoro parking lot at 7PM. :deal

    We'll be riding Fairview, Hyer, Trunk, Palmer-Fish, Wasilla-Fish, and into Wasilla for an evening snack :dg at a place of my choosing (I'm not just a member, I'm the unelected fricken president). :huh

    Good chance to break in all them new tires and see some great curves. Junior is coming for sure this time.

    No invite necessary. Be there or be square. :ricky

    Dear Paul,
    I'm sorry but you'll only be authorized to attend if you DON'T bring your damn KTM. :D My son used to think his WRX was cool till all you bums showed up riding faster stuff. Now he thinks he needs Ducati's and KTM's. I told him the only thing he needs right now are good grades and a freaking JOB! :huh

    Just kidding about bringing your sweet bike. Looking forward to eyeballing that monster.

    If ANYONE gets a sweet ride like that in my garage, it will NOT be my kid!

    Looking forward to seeing your bike (is that better, Fly?)

    :rofl

    Finally out of class today so I can get back to important stuff...
    Thanks for the kind words. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you folks to go riding with!

    I was hoping to do the D2D this year but now it appears I will be in training all the way into July. I guess plans will be for 2013.

    Leave by late morning and toss 'er the coals pretty good and you'll make the border. Done it many a time.

    Yeah, if you see my signature line I'm into covering some miles in a day, but I will be sitting in a flight simulator in Atlanta.

    All's well that end's well. Junior learned a VALUABLE lesson this fine evening. OUTSIDE/INSIDE/OUTSIDE! Had a little drama filled low-side on Wasilla-Fishhook. No injuries (other than his pride and windscreen). Thank's to all who stopped.

    The Friday Night Fatty's ride was semi-successful. Lots of great folks showed up but we never made it to the fatty part. A buddy from Texas (returning to AK after 4 years) showed up on my doorstep yesterday and we brought him along. Since his wife and mine are good buddies, they wanted to go to Evangelos.

    That was fun, glad Jr. didn't get hurt! It's always a bit nerve racking when you come around a corner and see that cloud of dust. :huh

    A lesson for sure, hopefully he recovers well from this.
