1991 sportster 1200
First memory connected with Motorcycles.
I remember my dads garage from my childhood, he had a diverse collection of bikes and as a young teenager I remember dressing up and posing on his 1995 Kawasaki Ninja that he used to race at the Sacramento drag races.
The first experience on Two Wheels.
My first experience on two wheels probably happened before I can remember it well, but since riding my own I think my favorite first experience was riding on the freeway. I was following my dad on his elefant 650 and I’d never gone that fast on a motorcycle under my own control. I remember watching the white line fly by and thinking wow it’s just like riding a bicycle with a fast motor! This is great!
More about your Bike.
My 1991 sportster came from a friend in LA I bought it for my bday in 2013, it has 6″ over on the front end and short shocks in the rear. It has a nice stance and is trying to look like a chopper although it’s not at all!
My FXRP is pretty stock.
A Moto trip alone or with others?
Both have such great benefits, I prefer riding with one other person, ideally.
With others? Ideal Moto companion or crew.
One solid riding buddy someone who is competent and careful.
Best Adventure on Two Wheels.
12 days self guided on a motorcycle through Guatemala.
A Place or a Road you recommend to enjoy Motorcycles.
A Moto event you can’t miss.
I can miss any moto event, I’m not that bothered by them. The most fun I had at an event recently was at the One Moto Show in Portland, they had 50cc electric mini bike races.
When you don’t Ride what do you do?
I ride horses, at a competitive 3day eventing barn .
A think about You I absolutely have to know.
I am terrified of frogs.
What will be your next Destination?
I am in the planning stages of my next trip now, I am looking at the tropics, and Himalayas, I want to ride everywhere so picking one destination is so hard!
A Motorcycle is…
…a machine, it doesn’t care if you treat it nice or treat it mean. As long as it’s maintained, it wants to keep running and working.
