Most Memorable Trip
My dad was in the Coast Guard, so I was raised up and down the East Coast but spent most of my life in the Philly suburbs. I rode quads and dirtbikes when I was younger then took the MSF when I was 17 and bought myself the quintessential starter bike: a Ninja 250. My mom was disappointed with the choice because she worked for the Harley plant in York, PA at the time. It was a great bike, and I beat the hell out of it, later graduating to a Ninja 500.
I got very into tinkering and fixing my bikes and always loved the style of vintage bikes and 2 stroke machines. I like to restore and customize late 60's-80's Japanese and small displacement Euro bikes, currently working on my 1968 Suzuki S32 and my race-built JC Penney Swinger 2 moped with a 70cc 45mm over-bored cylinder.
Now my daily rider is a Triumph Scrambler 900 with quite a bit of work on it, which I use to commute year-round. I love anything on two wheels and will have fun riding and racing until I'm not able to anymore.
