Chad Eller – USAF

profileimage

My name is Chad Eller. I am a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army. I am currently stationed in Katterbach, Germany. I am married to the most wonderful woman in the word and have been blessed with a terrific daughter. I have served two tours in Iraq and two in Afghanistan. When I returned from my most recent trip to Afghanistan this spring, I replaced my 2001 Suzuki VZ800 Marauder with a brand new 2013 BMW K1300S. Learning to manage 100 extra horsepower has been a lot of fun! Being stationed in Germany I have a great opportunity for phenomenal riding. I get to the Alps several times a year, it is the most beautiful place I have ever seen and the riding is indescribable. Riding the mountain passes around Andermatt, Switzerland is my absolute favorite ride due to the awesome views, phenomenal road surfaces, and an endless variation of all types of curves from sweepers to hairpins. Switzerland is incredibly expensive, but it is worth it! I am hoping to take a trip to the famous Trasfagarasan road in Romania next summer, and qualify for my Full Throttle 1610 km in 24 hours along the way.
