Hustle

How did you get into motorcycles?
My dad bought me a KX80 when I was 9 or 10. I’ve been on two wheels ever since.

KX80 for dirt. Then I stole dad’s Yamaha 650 Maxim in high school. Then I legit bought a 93 GSXR 1100 new off the floor when I got a “real job”.

What do you currently ride?
Kinda customized 2005 FXDXI

Oh lord. Owned? KTM 990 SMR. Dreamed about? The next one. I literally obsess over bikes all day, everyday.

What attracted you to motorcycles?
You ever been stressed AF? Then you ride and it’s gone? That. And seeing clubs in the 1980’s hauling ass around my town in a tight pack. The sound, smell, feel. They’re visceral and dangerous and free and glorious and complex and simple and perfect.

What do you like about riding motorcycles?
Speed. Power. Control. Chaos. Peace.

How have motorcycles changed your life?
Like that old surfer saying: “Motorcycles ruined my life. Motorcycles saved my life.” They’ve literally done both.

What has changed your life for the better?
Sobriety

What has changed your life for the worse?
Lol, sobriety.
