I've been holding out on you guys... 4 Years, 8 Months ago  
Well boys,

I'm still in Alaska, just barely hanging on as far as work goes, and about three weeks back I flew up to Anchorage and picked up my 2006 Roadliner with 1,300 miles on the tachometer. Hooked myself up with some Belkin heated gear from Alaska Leathers and headed for the mountains around 10pm. What a ride it was heading down the Seward Highway, and then the Sterling Highway to Kenai, AK. Got home around 1am with the sun blinding me for the last 30 miles or so.
The next day I got demoted and went from being manager to the weekend guy. Company decided taking a day off wasn't in their vocabulary, and they needed someone who was willing to work 7 days a week until they said otherwise. Nevermind that I had the approval of two different people to take the break. Long story short it's a family business, and a friend who was more qualified than myself showed up right after I was hired. A little buyer's remorse with a pinch of manipulation and next thing you know I'm the weekend guy. Wasn't sure what to do with the bike for a while, but I've decided to take advantage of the free time and enjoy the Alaskan summer while I can.
Have found some great roads on the Kenai Peninsula, and if you're ever up this way let me know. I'll be glad to share my quickly growing rolodex of local twisties! (Homer's great for starters!)

Here's a few shots of the new ride:
