    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...:dic

    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 -

    Ewww, a purty bike! :thumb

    Now to take it out and get it all muddy. :lol3

    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 -

    Nope change of plans, it's on a truck headed for SLC, I didn't want to rush the trip so I cut out a lot of miles and added some in the western half.
