From the family of D.J. Bittinger:
D.J.’s celebration of life was on
Sunday, August 20th
at 49th State Brewing Company
“Before buying his first motorcycle he enjoyed sleek beautiful cars. He’d always wanted a motorcycle, and finally took the safety course and jumped right in. He loved riding with his younger brother and made many new friends to enjoy his new found love. He lived for sunny days when he could ride to work or just go for an evening cruise. D.J. touched many lives with his quick wit and magnetic personality, and his laugh was infectious.
I’m sure he would agree that raising awareness and safety for the motorcycle community would be money well spent when asked where a donation in his name could be sent.”
The family has asked that donations be made on his behalf to ABATE of Alaska to help increase motorcycle awareness and help improve motorcycle safety within our community.

ABATE stands for — Alaskan Bikers Advocating Training and Education.
ABATE works for you, the motorcycle enthusiast.
ABATE is a not-for-profit organization registered in the state of Alaska.
ABATE is a neutral organization that allows ALL riders to unite in brotherhood to safeguard our rights and still remain individuals with differing views.
ABATE of Alaska believes that all motorcyclists are brothers with a common interest….
Though most motorcycle organizations are formed as structured riding groups where friends and family gather to have fun and socialize, A.B.A.T.E. of Alaska Inc. was founded with the mission of educating Alaska about our motorcycle community and Training Alaska’s motorcycle community. We accomplish this by:
- Encourage motorcycle awareness by working with both state and local agencies as well as concerned individuals to establish motorcycle awareness campaigns each summer. Most importantly May is our Motorcycle Awareness Month campaign: asking all motorists to watch out for motorcycles and share our roads.
- Providing the ABATE Rider Education Program. Proudly offering motorcycle riding classes since 1991, we have trained over 16,000 people. This program trains riders of different skill levels to ride defensively and safely on Alaskan roads. Upon successful completion of one of our courses a completion card is issued that is accepted by DMV to waive further testing and receive your motorcycle endorsement. ABATE is also authorized by DMV to administer the state’s endorsement test for those riders who do not wish to take a safety course.
ABATE strongly believes in individual freedom and protecting our rights to ride by working within the legislative and regulatory process. Our goal is to keep motorcycling free from unjust and unwarranted laws and to promote those that benefit motorcyclists. ABATE believes that a safer rider is more beneficial than a “safer crash”…In other words “Education, not legislation”
Finally, like all motorcycle organizations, we do enjoy the camaraderie of friends and family. As such we support the runs of others and even have a few of our own to say thanks to our members and supporters. I extend my personal invitation to you to attend one of our events and just have a good time with some good people.
