Type of Bike: 2019 Harley-Davidson Road Glide FLTRX

I started riding as a kid, but it got lost in the shuffle of college, work, kids, and life. After moving to Panama City, FL I started riding again and was instantly hooked! Although I started out the second time on a BMW GS, I always wanted a Harley. In 2019 I got it and have not looked back. For me it is not about what you ride… it is where the ride takes you. There is nothing better than heading out for a day, weekend or however long you carve out. The bike is the means to get out, leave the phone, challenges, and everything behind and just enjoy the ride. I have heard a lot of people talk about doing the IBA or LDR rides but many times they have not completed one yet for a variety of reasons. After riding out Hurricane Michael in Panama City in October of 2018 I realized life can change overnight. That is when I decided there was no time like the present to start realizing some of those dreams. There are amazing sights, people, and places out there around every corner. The LDR/IBA rides are only part of it for me. I do love the challenge of being “on the clock” and reaching the various milestones but also have some other rides planned this year to include a Bourbon Tour and The Blue Ridge Parkway.

Favorite Ride: Panacea, FL – Panama City, FL. You simply cannot beat a ride along the Gulf with a cold beer and oysters for lunch in Apalachicola, FL.

Future Rides:

2022 Full Throttle

King Of The Road

Kentucky Bourbon Run

Blue Ridge Parkway

2023 Born To Be Wild
