Pic taken the day after this K GT was new in July '07 on the break-in ride to Valdez. During this trip I had nice chat with another rider, local guy, at the chevron in Glennallen on the way down. Could that have been Alcan Rider? He was telling some incredible tales...

Hmmm You at UAF? If so, then I'm probably the guilty party.

There, edited for accuracy.

Alcan Rider, yep used to work at UAF but left after 33 years to fulltime work/play with the bikes. Finishing up a Norton, next up is a 68 Guzzi
and then a CBX after that. But reading all the tales herein (but AKBeemer, I thought it was all true!) I see the need to have a dirt bike again. Now which one would the inmates herein recommend?

Certainly not a KLR or DR. You are far too intelligent to do something as foolish as that. Aren't you?

Well of course I highly recommend a DR! I have been very happy with mine. We're going to hit 11,000 miles this evening when I ride to Wasilla and this is only the beginning of my third summer riding. Whoohoo!!!

Hey, what was your job up there?

I lived in Nerland Hall around '83-'84 and helped take a few Intramural Championships. FUN!

Dear Mr. Duc,

Since one of the areas I oversee at UAF is campus housing, I did a little digging in our records. Looks like you may owe us a considerable little sum for an incident you were involved in. I don't want to embarrass you and violate your confidentiality, but you know the incident I'm talking about... the one involving the freshman girl, vomit and the goat.

DUC, I wondered if admitting you were here was a mistake KNOWING AKBeemer's present occupation. I of course am willing to let bygones be bygones, and as I worked in the computer center, (in Bunnell back then), I really can't know anything, at least not that I'll admit to. And furthermore, since I know your father, its just as well I don't know anything more...

RD - nope, Norton wasn't out of the barn last fall, although it had been out and about last June. Should be running again soon. Its got a red tank at the moment.

You'll probably need to narrow it down a little more, like - was the freshman girl blond, brunette, or red head; was the goat a billy or nanny; did this take place on the roof of the dorms or in the parking lot at midnight? From the stories AKDuc has told, it could have been any of quite a few incidents in his otherwise wasted youth.

Hey - you gotta admit they're pretty good lies. I've even started to believe some of them myself.
