What kind of bike do you ride or want to get?

For Sport riding, I like my Ducati ST4s or Aprilla Tuono . For longer distance sport touring my Yamaha FJR is my favorite. I have been known to take my Dual Purpose DR650 on TSB outings.

How long have you been riding?

I built my first minibike in 1969 and bought my first motorcycle, a Honda CB 360, in 1974. My wife Debbie and I have been riding ever since.

How did you hear about Tucson Sport Bikes?

My son Tim, who also rides but lives in CA sent me a link to TSB before we moved to Tucson in Aug 2009.

Do you have a favorite place to ride?

Because I love the twisties, my favorite places to ride are near mountains. When I lived in Wichita, KS, the Ozark mountains in Arkansas were the closest and I'd get out there a few times a year. At least once a year I tour the Rocky Mountains which were about 8 hours away. In 2008, a buddy and I rode 3100 miles out to CO, NM and the Grand Canyon in AZ before heading to Mexico and back home to Wichita through TX and OK. I used to live in NC and enjoyed riding the Blue Ridge Mountains. Locally, Mt. Lemmon is a favorite.

Real First Name?

Introduction

I actually joined TSB before moving to Tucson in Aug 2009. My wife Debbie and I wanted to hook up with riders in the area. I love riding the twisties and thought this group could show me the best routes.
