About me: Other than some dabbling as a kid and riding on the tank of my old man’s CB175, I started late in life at college. I rode my first bike, a 1985 Honda Shadow 500, from Phoenix to Rochester, NY in 1999! I commute daily, but for the good stuff, I’m a weekend warrior: nothing special. Maybe just a little crazier than most. My interests lie primarily in “something new.” Preferably difficult. I ride for a challenge, throttle therapy, and transportation. I also truly enjoy coaching, teaching, and mentoring others, imparting my hard-earned knowledge to like-minded people. I had a blast as an MSF RiderCoach 13 years ago and will return to teaching when time and employment allows.
Future goals: Bigger bikes at traditionally smaller bike events, coupled with great people, outrageous fun, and self-discovery. I’m naturally competitive and therefore hungry for training and experience. I have nothing to prove to the rest of the world, but I have plenty to prove to myself, and the surest way to catch my interest is to say, “No, it can’t be done.”
