Here find a video from a week or two ago of a honda fatcat trip to the knik glacier with a pile of side by sides. I had a hole in the bottom of my tw airbox from a carelessly installed banshee shock(adjustment knob pierced it on a hard landing) so I took the honda which handles almost identically to the TW except has an automatic clutch. Gorgeous day and lots of fun. Lost a rear fender along the way which cost me about $40 to replace. This glacially carved valley is for the most prt very dry and sparsely vegetated, and thus alot of it feels like going to the desert without leaving the 907 area code. Gets very little snow as well so it rideable nearly all winter.

Love the knik. Have a place on lazy mountain, sure miss it up there. Going to come up in a couple of weeks for a check on things. Wish I had my quad and tw up there. Riding Jim creek and the gravel flats of the knik is great.

Very nice video, thanks as always for good entertainment.
Does pole mount for camera have a gimble/swivel to keep camera erect? Hard to tell from shadow of mount.

Yes, I wear goretex waders all the time when im riding. All the water here is painfully cold and its flat miserable to ride when youre wet and cold and muddy. On the end of my camera boom there are a whole bunch of swivels in series so you can point the camera in any direction or orientation without demounting it.

Its in the rain shadow of the chugach mountains. In other words, just 20 or 30 miles south gets freaking buckets of snow and rain all the time. By the time the weather systems work their way north across that area, theyve done spent all their moisture.
