Hi all,

I will be flying into Anchorage for this week in August. I plan to rent a KLR for a day and wondered if anyone would want to go for a ride while I am in town. It would be nice to have someone that can show me around and take me on a good ride for the day. I don't have the rental set up yet so I am flexible on what day of the week if one works better than another. I know most people work Monday thru Friday, but thought I would throw it out there and see if I got a response.

Lets ride!

If you have the bike for a full day (24 hours) that is plenty of time to take a trip to one of several destinations. As akwatercraft implied, Seward is one of them, with a nice ride along Turnagain Arm and over Turnagain Pass on the way.

Some others would be to go north on the Parks Hwy (AK-3) to Talkeetna, with a ride over Hatcher Pass either on the way north or on the return leg. Ride to Glennallen on the Glenn Hwy (AK-1), past the Matanuska Glacier and with mountains on both sides of the road for many miles. Some shorter rides, such as down to Portage Valley and maybe on to Hope, or a ride out to Palmer on the old Glenn Hwy.

There are a few of the local inmates who show up on this forum as well as ADVRider who might be free to show you around.

Thanks. The bike companies website site says a day consist of picking it up in the morning and returning it in the evening. So I assume I will have the bike for 8-10 hours.

That's time enough to come to Homer and see the prettiest and best part of Alaska, of course some of the other inmates on this asylum may disagree with that statement. One they can't argue with is we have the best climate in AK by a long shot.

Have a good ride wherever you go.
