How long have you been riding for and what got you into riding?

almost 30 years... I've always loved beautiful, fast machines... one of my dreams when I was a kid was to become a professional motorcycle racer..

What kind of impact had riding had for you? Has riding helped you to overcome a hardship in your life, if yes how?

significant impact.. still to this day... earlier when I first started riding I've always thought my Dad was smiling watching over me every time I'm on my motorcycle.... today, it's riding is more than a hobby, it's been a significant part of my life.... it's my release, my outlet... it's an obsession much greater than I can explain.. and I've been fortunate to be able touch a lot of people in a positive way through this culture...

Do you prefer to ride solo or groups and why?

both equally

What kind of bike do you have and why? What kind of riding do you do or have you done? (Dirt, off road/enduro, road trips etc.)

Harley Davidson. I've been a sportbike rider for the most part and I still am at heart. I've done street and track... But with age come calmness.. I ride HDs now because I've learnt to enjoy just being able to cruise, enjoy the wind and feel the pavement

What's been your favorite or most memorable riding experience?

the people I meet and ride with. the same people I've become very close with.. the comradery

Future riding goals/ plans?

Sturgis. Mexico. And across Philippines.
