My love for two wheels started about 15 years ago. I lost a bet on a Yankee v. Orioles game and as a result needed to get on the back of a motorcycle for the first time. In the end, it's the best bet I've ever lost. I started riding my own bike (a 2007 Moto Guzzi Breva, named Merlot) shortly after that experience and the completion of the MSF course. I was introduced to track days almost immediately. I was sold on the fact that it was a safe, controlled environment to learn, practice, and develop riding skills. I was taking the Breva to the track until I became the owner of a BMW F800ST. Still to this day, my favorite track days are the ones I do on the BMW, despite the common site of me on a CBR 600RR.
I started on staff with TTD about 5 years ago. I'm a firm believer that you don't need to have a sport bike to come to track days. What I love most about TTD and being on staff is that our days caters to a variety of riders and bikes, and we can support them all. I love working with all of our riders, but I must admit, the non-sportbikers and the women are my favorites! While I do facilitate the learning of our riders to learn, practice, and develop skills, I am a life learner of riding ever since I lost that bet and happy to share what I know with any and many.
