HOW DID YOU GET INTO MOTORCYCLING?
When I was 16, my brothers got a motorcycle to ride around the family farm. Somehow they let me ride it and I've been riding ever since.
WHAT IS YOUR OBJECTIVE, YOUR GOAL?
To stay safe, learn from it, and have fun.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE/ENJOY IN MOTORCYCLING?
I experienced two injuries (one moto, the non-moto related) that kept me away from motorcycling for 10 months. It was a very challenging time. My first ride out on the road, I felt like I'd come home. Even though my recovery was not complete, I was whole again.
WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND MOTORCYCLING?
It introduces you to the best people, experiences, and adventures, and teaches you so much about yourself. It's the perfect tool for personal growth, and a lot of fun at the same time.
DO YOU HAVE A ROLE MODEL/MENTOR THAT ENCOURAGED YOU?
No one encouraged me to join. But someone I hold in high regard as a mentor is Mary McGee!
