    Well, I'd like to see Fairbanks and venture a little bit on the way to Deadhorse, but my time is running and I have a flight ticket from Vancouver the 13th.Gotta figure how to send the bike back to Italy first....
    I guess I will post something here when I am in Anchorage

    I got the car because my wife didn't like riding two-up. And I enjoy her going with me and sharing the experience.
    With-in this last year since I've had it, so many couples have asked about, when I've been out getting gas or going to the store. There is more people thinking about the sidecars then I thought.
    And I felt that motorcyle made the most sense to travel by now a days. With the price of gas and all. Plus she loves riding, winter and summer. And I ride just about everyday.

    It doesn't come off

    Combining the twin disciplines of ice riding and backcountry skiing, today's ride was the approach to a climb up into the Birthday Bowl.

    Ride out to the Jack River, where the ice is glare and fast, 5 miles downstream on the Nenana, park the bike and start climbing.

    Great pictures Piston
    That really reminded my of Wyoming, I used to live right off the red desert did a heck of riding in the back country with a 370 RM and some 210 Head skis.
    Used to use Ramer bindings and climbing skins

    Your pics brought back a lot of memories Thanks
