BIKER?????

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I was so astonished to see a motorcycle in Tok Alaska this morning, I almost went int he ditch! I pulled into the nearest approach (parked all a-kilter in a snowbank) while digging out my camera and opening the car door... the biker waved and went on his way (laughing no doubt!) while I struggled with the lens cap... he was a long way off before I got the shot off... cropped heavily so you could see him.

I doubt there'll be a next time, I think this was a once-in-a-lifetime spotting! But I'd risk the ditch again!

Sometimes you just have to shake your head. Great catch, and try to stay on the road next time!

Me either!

But we do have a resident who rides his bicycle 365 days a year, no matter HOW COLD... he is a very hardy soul.

I suppose you hear the roar any time of year Eileen? We are usually 'deprived of hearing bikers, and rain on the roof, for 7-8 months of the year.

I agree, this guy is freakin' nuts! "EXTREME" biker! (maybe there should be a TV reality show.... NOT!)

This is nuts, but around here in Harley-Davidson land, you will see bikes any old time...the people are so desperate to be on them whenever they can.

Wow! That's Crazy.
Reminded me of a friend in Montana, worked on the Railroad also, but different Dept than I did, but he would ride a Motorcycle from Whitehall to Butte, 25 miles over a mountain pass. I would see him often, but I couldn't hardly believe it when I saw him a couple times on that pass when temp was well below Zero, Don't remember now just how cold tho.
He did own a Pickup. You wouldn't catch me doing that! I waited til warmer Spring to ride a bike.

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
