Welcome John, You will find no other place on the planet with so much useful information regarding motorcycles. And just to prove it look for the thread " Do deer alerts really work?" As an example of the infinite wisdom that resides in this place.

Welcome to the forum! I have a question, how much do they charge for the skid that replaces the front wheel on your bike up there?;)

Thanks for the warm welcome, to answer a few questions. We do actually have a riding season, I get my bike outearly Mayright after I put the snowmachine away for the summerand put it back up around late Sept early Oct when it is time to get the snowmachine tuned up for the winter. I have averaged between 2,000-3,000 miles a summer in the 3 years I have owned the wing.

Tonys96, No I am not affiliated with the refinery, but I do work on the pipeline that supplies the refinery.

GLester, I have notheard ofHarker Heights since IPCS'ed from Fort Hood back in 90.. that place brings back some memories lol and I think that the price of parts for the wing are way more expensive and is harder to work on than for the snowmachine..

Exavid, I saw in away previous post of yours that you moved out to WA from AK, at least I think it was you. Where from in AK were you? Ohh and yes I had to grab onto "my better half" the other night while taking a walk so the mosquitoes would not carry me away :D... :shock:sorry for rambling on and doing such a long post everyone...

I went to Kotzebue in 1962 stayed there until 1973 with a break for army service 64-66 (spent that in Ft. Rich and Wainright), moved to Ketchikan in 73, Juneau in 82, left to help with the old folks here in Tacoma in 98. With the FAA most of that time, and drove a few airplanes on the side.

Did you know a gentleman by the name of Dick Hunze in Ketchikan around that time frame? I think he had started in the FAA by that time, but I know he lived and worked in Ketchikan in the 60's then moved to Talkeetna in the early70's if I remember correctly.He worked in Talkeetna for the FAA as a controller.

I was at OTZ when he was in ECH. Think Imet him in FAI at a love in.

Don't get excited folks, a love in was a term for one of those group gropes, love thy fellows, team building kind of PC crap that got started in the Government and Corporations in the 70s.
