How long have you been riding regularly?

5 years after a 20+ year sabbatical.

What motorcycle(s) do you ride?

Currently selling a 2011 Triumph Tiger 800XC as I am taking ownership of a R1200GS. My first bike was an 80s era Suzuki 550 Katana. Had a '09 Versys that can be seen in a few pics on the site, she was traded in on the XC

What types of rides do you like?

RTE's, to work, to Motorcycle Shops and stores, to just about anywhere.

What is your attitude toward riding gear and safety?

I like to protect myself from the worst. Survivability is key. My friend David explained it this way. ATGATT.... All The Gear, All The Time. When I was 11 I took a spill on my mini bike, no shirt, shorts, dirt road, 6 days later the road rash was infected. Not fun.... I learned my lesson.

Is there anything we should know about when riding with you?

I like being in the back of the group. If I am leading I usually make it up as a go, but I did finally get a GPS. Now I need to learn how to use Base Camp... and I thought Microsoft Office 2010 sucked! Base Camp is not so intuitive.


The further we ride the better.
