    Helikron and I were planning a run to Whittier for opening day at Varley's which is this Saturday. Unfortunately he is obligated to help a fellow inmate with flooring issues that day, so we decided to go on Sunday instead. Any takers? The plan is to meet at the Potter Station plow train at 11 am for the 12:30 tunnel opening.

    I already called Legion about this & might as well pass it on.
    This :spam might save you some bucks.

    Had State Farm & liability only insurance on my bikes was about as much as on a car. $270 – $280 a year. :eek1 Dropped SF & went to these guys.

    They sell Progressive Insurance. Yeah, the ‘Flo’ character on the TV ads. About 95 bucks a year per bike for liability on my bikes. :wings

    Didn’t do any better than State Farm on the cars though.
    S/W corner of Benson & C Street. Above Popeye's Chicken, South side of building.

    I have no affiliation whatsoever & generally hate insurance companies just on GP. Seems like they have a license to steal. :uhoh

    What is Varley's? Looking to do some riding on Sunday. Forecast sounds good. My bike will definitely not be clean. Been on the trailer for 4300 miles.

    That's the Snow Blower Engine on display on the Inlet side of the Hwy just before Potter Valley Weigh Station.

    Varley's is where God goes when he wants fish and chips. They're yarded right out of the bay and dipped into the fryer. The place is in Whittier which is roughly an hour south of Anchorage.

    Dirty is fine. Nobody much cares about that stuff around here.

    Tom's got it right.


    Been out twice for F&C, gotten wet both times.


    Someone might want to call ahead and warn them... invasion imminent.


    For the Druck_Uncle: GPS or google map "18658 seward highway" for rally point. Look for the train behind the forest service building.
