Yeah I dont know what you are talkin about... I really like riding there... if that means anything... anyway were you up there yesterday? I was thinking about going up but I figure the snow would still be too low.

I also want to know the snow conditions up there. Three day weekend is coming up and would like to spend it up there rather than at the zoo that is china hat on long weekends.

In response to the original question, which seemed to be what if MSH became a National Park? "Traditional use', such as snowmobiling on the side of MSH, has always been an important factor in forest management for the Forest Service. The Park Service might adopt a different policy towards this. Park status would end elk hunting there. The park boundary would probably be near Road 25. So Dark Divide would not be in the Park. Still, I would say, ride it while you can. I am sure the anti's would like to see DD included in the next wilderness bill.

We are waiting for a few weeks of sun to melt some stuff off so we can get a good start on it. Last year there were over 40 trees down on 2, 18, 80, this year has the potential to be worse. Need help for sure.

The valley trail is open with no logs. That bridge west of Blue Lake CG is still out though. Can't wait till DD thaws out, but I'll take what I can get for now.

      Hi, all. DRZ-400S rider from Kodiak, AK here. I'll have a week to burn next week and just purchased ferry tickets to/from Homer so I can do a solo trip on the mainland. I know it's a little late in the season, but does anyone have any suggestions for places I can go? 
      Some places I've looked at:  East End Road (Homer), Crown Point Mine Trail (Kenai Peninsula), Hatcher Pass, McCarthy/Kennicott Mine, Chicken, Denali Hwy, etc.
      I know it's a little late in the season, so some of these areas may not work (McCarthy/Kennicott comes to mind).  It will be my first time riding a motorcycle on mainland Alaska since 1999-2000.  Any suggestions/advice are greatly appreciated!

      Anyone know of any good shops that offer vapor blasting or water blasting or vapor honing. It's all the same thing just different names.
      Looking to have some aluminum street bike frames done so need a place that can handle larger pieces. 
      Some where close to Seattle east side Tacoma that you might recommend. 
      I found the motoshed in queen Anne but they can't do larger items.
