Tell us a little about yourself like how long you've been riding, what kind of bike you have and anything else you'd like to share!

I've been riding motorcycles since I was ten years old when my father bought a Honda 65, which he allowed me to learn on. I was hooked on motorcycles. When I turned twelve, he bought me a Honda 65 of my own. I rode this bike with all my friends who by now were getting the new Honda 70 Trail. Remember those? I bought my next bike, a Suzuki TS185, when I turned 16. It wasn't long before I had stripped the bike for racing and had a blast with my friends, who now were riding Hodakas, Yamahas, Kawasakis, etc. Dirt riding was my life. At 18, I bought a Suzuki GT380 (which I still own). Next was a Yamaha RD400. (1976), a Kawasaki KZ 550 LTD (1981, still own), and a Honda ST1300 (2003), my current bike. I served in the Air Force for 22 years, retiring in 1997. Currently employed with the Borough of West Chester Police Department since 1998.

What was your favorite all time ride or a ride you would like to take someday?

My favorite ride has to be as a kid when I rode my dirt bike to National Rolling Mills off Rt29 to ride their trails and hill climbs. I also thoroughly enjoyed racing on the tracks set up on Bonnie Blink Farm off Rt 100 in Exton.

How did you hear about our group?

Through co-workers who are members.


My first date was a motorcycle. We've been dating ever since!
