He on his KTM, me on the Tdub... we took old mining roads to the top of Ester dome some 2,000 ft above the city of Fairbanks. We then came down the back side into an actively mined area and finished the ride home on the Parks Hwy. The air was crisp, beginning to feel like fall. Some of the trails were really difficult and I managed, while coming downhill, to high side off the TW and wound up laying downhill from it with my foot caught under it. Took a while to free myself but no broken bones, no bent bike parts. A good ride of about 35 miles.
