What or who inspires you:
My 13 year old son who has a severe genetic disorder.

Tell us a little about your son:
Kyle is thirteen years old and has a genetic disorder called spinal muscular atrophy. He’s 100% handicapped and tube fed and on a ventilator.

How does he inspires you:
Kyle is amazing. The strength that God has given him is amazing. I’ve seen him go through stuff and be near death and just have a smile on his face. Really puts your life into perspective when you see what some people go through just to be alive and they are happy. How can anyone complain. He’s just awesome!


What kind of work do you do:
Journeyman power lineman

How would you describe the motorcycle community in your area:
Very friendly. Ton of charity rides with a ton of bikes always involved.

The freedom. Very soothing just riding and enjoying nature.

Not many. A couple thousand. Work a lot and family.

Favorite road you’ve ridden:
A stretch of road called Avery drive. A couple mile long road tucked in along side a hill and runs along the Arkansas river. This time of the year you can see bald eagles nesting in the trees along side the river and sometimes flying around. It’s awesome.

Who would win a fight between a taco & a cheeseburger:
Betting the taco would get the best of the burger. The taco would be light and fast and the burger big and slow. Guess the taco would float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. Lol

Do you prefer riding by yourself or in a group?
Either. Love riding with friends but not afraid just to take off for a ride by myself.

How would you describe your riding style:
Just like to cruise and enjoy the surroundings.

Why do you ride:
Love the freedom of it and love working on my bike. It’s fun to read up on how to do stuff, do the work and see how it turns out.

Do you have any advice for others that are thinking about getting a bike and learning to ride:
Be very aware of your surroundings and take your time learning.

Any last words:
Love to ride and work on my bike. Together they make for an awesome hobby.
