On Sunday evening, we went to visit friends at their home on Chena Ridge. Near sunset, the sun was shining on the north side of the Alaska Range and was just visible through the trees. Both of these photos were taken by Bridget from the deck of their natural log home with her iPhone.
This is the Tanana River which runs on the south side of Fairbanks and flows west past Nenana and into Yukon River at the village of Tanana. The picture was taken about 2½ hours later than the first one.
Today, being the first Monday of the month, was the BMW airhead meetup at the Silver Gulch microbrewery. I think that there were around 17 people there including a couple of new people. The Honda trike belonged to a Dave from Tennessee who was passing through town and joined us. He has been on the road for a month and is getting ready to head south later this week after riding to the Arctic Circle on Wednesday (weather permitting). He introduced me to a new acronym. ROMEO. Retired Old Men Eating Out. It didn't apply to the airhead meeting as some aren't retired, and four of them were women.
I was originally planning on riding the Beemer out there but then I remembered that it still had 5W30 oil in it from last winter. So I took the Ural. I'm really liking the way it rides now compared to before. It just sounds so nice and pulls great. I'm not sure if it's just that I'm more used to it or it really is running better.
