How long have you been riding for and what got you into riding?
Since I was 8. and my father
I think riding is in my blood. My grandfather raced for bsa and triumph way back when and both of my parents had bikes (though never admitted it to me as a child). I always loved dirt biking as a kid before I moved to England but got into road riding about 9/10 years ago.
6 + years and my dad and god father
What kind of impact had riding had for you? Has riding helped you to overcome a hardship in your life, if yes how?
the closer you are to death the more you feel alive. Riding has always been a way for me to clear my mind and focus on something enjoyable.
It’s just something I love to do. I get to commute by riding an engine attached to two wheels and some other thingymabobs. It’s terrifying and awesome.
Riding is truly a cleansing and peaceful activity.
Do you prefer to ride solo or groups and why?
lone wolf or a pair is best to ride. 3 is also the max. more control and communication is do-able
I’m not a fan of riding in large groups, kind of feels like being stuck in moving traffic, but nothing beats a ride with my homies.
Either . I just love riding
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.)
2015 dyna street bob. I have done all types of riding. my favourite ending up being harley dynas tuned for sport riding as its the best of both worlds.
I ride a 2013 Harley Davidson Dyna Fatbob. I specifically bought a Dyna because I saw people wheelie and drift them and thought it was the raddest thing I’d ever seen. I rode dirt as a kid and road for the last 10.
Harley sporty cuz it’s awesome haha I do street and dirt . Dirtbiking is what I’ve done since I was little .
What's been your favorite or most memorable riding experience?
would be my first ride on a Harley. spent my life on sport bikes and it changed me forever. I have switched to the darkside
The experience of learning to throw a big heavy bike around has been and continues to be incredibly rewarding.
Riding to Joshua Tree it’s been my dream since I was little. Bucket list check
Future riding goals/ plans?
would love to ride to California for a custom leather vest. 2nd to build my parter a custom bike.
Scrape the brake light off the fender (and ride away) would be my goal. Only plan so far would be Route 66 West to East ending in my childhood hometown of Newport, RI.
Big trips . I wanna ride our to White Sands in New Mexico.
What else would like to ask to your fellow riders?
to try a bike on the opposite side of the spectrum you currently ride.
