Spurgeon has had the pleasure riding motorcycles all over the country. While living in Southern California, Tennessee, and eastern Pennsylvania, he has ridden and explored countless miles of tarmac between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Originally a history teacher, he loves the stories that lie beneath the surface, waiting to be told. He likes crashing Austrian dirtbikes, wrenching on vintage Japanese wiring nightmares, and pulling Iron Butt rides on his well worn Triumph Bonneville. When not riding, Spurgeon can be found chatting with local barkeeps, flirting with women who are out of his league, and arguing the case for record players over iPods.
