I just came in from doing the loop.It rained and rained and then it rained some more.

I enjoyed it though.

But good lord at the squids in Fairbanks.When I got off the Richardson on to Airportway,I went str8 to the motel 8.Before I could even get my helment off there was 2 guys behind me on ZX 12's with extended chrome swingarms wanting me and Kim to go ride with them and 40 of there buds.

I said no thanks,I've got better things to do.Then there was the squidlyest of squids riding around in the rain with not even a pair of sun glasses on.How they did that,I'll never know.

It was all good though.

There was one guy with an old CBR and two guys sharing a house that have HD's. One guy was in town visiting. He was riding a 1974 Norton Comando.

I lived in a sailboat in the small boat harbor and kept my Yamaha at the harbor masters office.
