    What the hell is STOKE? Klieter is looking for it in Mexico and some other dude is trying to find in Alaska this summer. Please help so I know if I am about to step in it, I can avoid it.

    Thanks for helping a brother out.

    I think it is something like being a "Hep Cat", "Groovy" or "Totally Tubular".

    I distinctly remember being booted out of my sixth grade class for some heinous, forgotten offense just as we were starting to talk about gerunds. I never fully recovered, but I did eventually find out that a gerund is a verb used as a noun.

    For this operator it's my lame attempt to poke fun at the "Bro's". Ya know the flat bill hat fellas that call each other bro, jacked truck that never sees dirt and the whole rolling coal goon crowd. Lot's of basic bro's down here - I just don't get it so like most stuff beyond my comprehension I joke about it.
    My humor game is as weak as my riding :muutt



    But for me stoke is moto fun that brings a smile to my face or any feeling of excitement - it's that simple.

    Great screen name @Drunk_Uncle perhaps this summer ya can point me in the direction of the finest craft suds AK has to offer?

    Thank you Coleman. If you make it to Fairbanks I will share a brew, but the nickname has nothing to do me drinking. It was bestowed upon me In Tikrit in 03.

    I only get stoked when I mix KHuddy and Griz together... A pretty potent mix that I do not recommend for the first time Stoker!!! This new shit isn't the same as the stoke you're Fathers were stoking....

    I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to do it. Something about going blind.

    I recall from a long time ago that my aunt disapproves strongly.
