Top definition
Code name used by US Air Force enlisted members to identify a particularly unpleasant fellow Aerospace Team member. Duke Rider characteristics include, but are not limited to, blatant and transparent self-promotion, loud, pretentious behavior employed to bring attention to one's self, over-zealous enforcement to obscure regulations, full-contact sucking up to higher ranking members.

The Dukes are known to design and award themselves awards/trophies/pen and pencil sets, each with their name prominently displayed.

The Dukes frequent the NCO Club, and hover around, pouring coffee for any higher ranking NCOs.

The Dukes spend more on their pristine uniforms than on their children's welfare.

The Dukes personify the USAF tradition of "All show- no go."

The Dukes have never heard a weapon fired in anger, but have an endless supply of war stories.
Dude, I just met the new First Sergeant.... he's full on Duke Rider.

You know, Sergeant Burton was an OK dude until he got promoted. Now, he's all Duke Rider and shit.

Man, you should have seen it. Two of the new guys in maintenance are trying to out-Duke Rider each other.

I've decided to get out and do the civilian thing. Yesterday morning, I looked at myself and, Dude, I'm telling you, I saw my Duke Rider training wheels in the mirror. I'm outta here!
