Greetings from Alaska

#1 Unread post by mamamudd » Sun Aug 18, 2013 2:03 pm

Hello All!

New rider in Alaska, just finished my MSF course (on a Suzuki GZ250) and am ready to get my own bike and hit the road before our season ends.

Hello Mama and welcome to the forum.
People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.

Always wear a helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

You can ride year 'round in Anchorage. If you have a kick-starter and put screws in the tires :)
Ooooooh. Shiny!

Dad just wore a standard snow-machining suit. This was in the late '70's.
