Spurgeon has had the pleasure of riding motorcycles all over the country. While living in Southern California, Tennessee, and eastern Pennsylvania, he has explored miles of tarmac from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Originally a history teacher, he loves the stories that lie beneath the surface, waiting to be told. He likes crashing Austrian dirt bikes, 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.
