Motorcycles have been a part of my life since I was seventeen years old. I learned to ride on a Honda and then bought a BSA 250 single. After a number of falls with the Beeser, I heard that there was a new bike out. I went and looked at a 250 Yamaha DT1 and bought it. I then spent hundreds of hours in the bush and on logging roads and power line access roads. I progressed to the point of racing in cross-country events around B.C. The down side of racing is that you are most likely to get hurt, and I did. I then bought a Trials bike just to keep in touch with riding and the wide open spaces that I love so much. I rode the back roads around Tofino with a backpackers' fishing rod for those times when I stopped beside a river or creek. My riding life changed forever in 1995 with my involvement with Trev Deeley Motorcycles and my first ride on a Harley Davidson. I have since had two different bikes and am looking forward to a new one this year which will involve some custom work and eagles. I believe that the motorcycle rider in me is a fulfillment of the horseback rider. A Harley Davidson is easier to keep and look after than a horse and I can still experience the wide country
that I love as a Westcoast Rider.
