Yup, that's right 1950 miles and my ass hurt:huh But, she's all I had and on a spur of the moment decision to see The mainland of Alaska I went. I've lived in Kodiak, AK for 7 years and I'm normally too busy spring-fall to get out and see the great land I call home. It's been slow at work and i had someone to cover for me. The time is now First of all I'm not set up for long outings on a bike so all my stuff for the most part was either heavy or too big as you can see with all the crap I brought. My camera gear alone was about 20 lbs. That part was coming no matter how i packed since I love taking pictures. My trip started by taking the ferry from Kodiak to Homer where I was riding from. I really thought this whole trip would be around 1200 miles but that changed as I had time to see more. My map shows my route: green roads I traveled twice and yellow once. Kind of a screwy way to go but, with a lot smoke from wildfires ruining the views I have to go back to see them again with the skies clearer. The weather was great other than the smoke. Only got rained on a total of 2 hrs coming into Fairbanks. Was pretty hot the first couple of days. As high as 94 but most days were high 70's to mid 80's. Always cooled off at night which was nice. The bike had no issues except possible bad gas(a little water) she died on me going up one of the many hills but, then started back up after 2 tries. It was fine the rest of the time( about another 1300 miles). One other thing was the FMF Q4 that started leaking....AGAINIt was getting loud so, I tried resealing it but couldn't let it sit for long since i had to ride it the following day. I'm not to happy with that thing. Anyway I'm not going in to much more on the ride. I'll just show you some pics. There would be more if it wasn't for the smoke in the air some days. Was an awesome trip and I'll do it again sometime. Enjoy Lots of these all the way to Fairbanks. Ya better hold on when they pass. lots of this and this and...... this on the begining of the Haul Rd. up by Denali Denali Hwy. Rt.4 North of Paxon Just outside of Tok on RT.2 RT1 around Eureka Palmer Cook Inlet A river near Girdwood somewhere That's it for now. Hope you like them.
