I’m 49-years-old and was born in England and schooled in Ireland. I bought my first motorcycle at age 15. I graduated from the University of Guelph and have been working in IT sales for 25 years.
As requested here’s some info about what I ride . . .
A 1969 Triumph Trident – one of the first triples made. I’ve ridden this bike for many years
A Husky TE449
A newly purchased 2008 BMW R1200GS
A 2003 Kawasaki ZZ-R1200, that I totalled just after booking this trip.
I also have a 1980 Yamaha RD350LC project bike in the garage (sorry no pic).
