A few years ago, some things happened that changed my life forever:  I fell in love and married a girl who rode motorcycles, I left my career in aerospace and I got a job in the motorcycle industry. I've never been happier! My wife, Brayde and I make it a point to go on at least one ride a year and we've explored most of the Western United States, Canada, Northern Mexico, Baja and Europe in the last 4 years. 

 I ride a 2006 BMW R1200GS and Brayde rides a 2007 BMW F650GS. They're perfectly matched bikes for traveling together and this fall we’re going to finally take one of our dream rides: Seattle to Tierra del Fuego.
