Laugh Alaskans! You and your Bikes, Post here!

Just my Bike and I. A couple of inmates gave me some suggestions on photo hosting and I'm checking out the result. Good opportunity to have some way of readily identifying Alaska inmates as well.

Here i am riding around somewhere between Beaver Creek YT and Haines Junction YT a couple of years ago. I've since replaced the aluminum top box with a Givi, but just about everything else is the same. More stickers on the panniers though.

I have a bad feeling from the post so far that I'm going to be the only non-BMW owner in the state...

And that's a bad thing because....







P.S. you are no where near the only non-BMW owner in the state.

My bike and I last fall. Since then I've changed the windshield, added a buttpad, a GPS mount, a video camera mount, a headlight guard, a fuse block, I electrified the tank bag, and put on quite a few new stickers -





A little more recent, getting it ready for our SLC trip in May -

Just to prove we don't all ride Bikes Made Weird - here are a few photos that show otherwise (and fortunately, most do not include yers truly) -
The mighty Zook, in Alabama. I'm the one without the shorts -


The KLR on its favorite stretch of "highway" -


The Gold Wing, before I cured it of this nasty habit -


Alcan Annie - the Concours that can find its way from Tok to Dawson Creek without any guidance from me -

Here's my mule in Kodiak.

Action shot taken by CappyRidesAgain.

Here's my ugly mug, taken by Nordkapper during our Kodiak ADVfest weekend last September.

All you guys on the mainland can look for me in mid may on this big pig. I'm riding it home to Kodiak from Utah.
