    There is no place in Alaska that I don't enjoy on my TW...… except the highway between Anchorage to Homer where it seems like everyone is towing a 25' aluminum boat and is going 80 mph.....but I do enjoy the side roads into Hope or Alyeska and Portage/Whitter.....and all the stops on the Marine Highway....

    Among my favorites roads are from Hyder to the Salmon Glacier ….and the Nabesna Road.....the Denali Highway..... White Pass ….I stay at the roadside campground on the terminal side of Valdes and then use the TW to get to town and explore Keystone Canyon and Thomson Pass...got to get back there...

    And, TinyWheel was there too! This was a great ride with every challenge you can imagine facing. Mud, bogs, logs to hop, roots to fight, and my nemesis-the 100 yard verticle inclines! Thanks to Tiny for rescuing me after my TW decided to take a nap in an incredibly vertical climb with cobble the size of milk jugs! No harm done though other than a broken front fender. We experienced all of this by ourselves-never saw another rider on the trails that day....just a moose! Best ride of the summer!

    Yes indeed.
    And it is much worse when we ride off the highway!


    Har-har-har.

    Mud, bogs, slop, and whatever else you want to call it is everywhere because of the wetlands.
    They freeze in the winter and there are so many snowmachine trails to ride that are impassible in the summer on two wheels.
    Even really big two wheels!

    Bummer.
    This working for a living really cramps my riding time.
    Oh, well, it is sunny so I'm going riding... somewhere!

    That mud is so debse and adhesive it causes the chain to bind stretch and derail from the sprockets. It gets stuck between the chain and sprocket. All those things happened on this ride. Stone cold gorgeous ride that makes me proud to be a wasilla-billy.
