After coming home from Iraq as a vehicle commander in 2009, I purchased my first motorcycle (CBR954RR) and was hooked from then on. For a few years I only road track, then road rain or shine everyday for 8 years, on multiple bikes. I’ve moved on to a 2017 Harley Street Glide.
I got into long distance riding to support suicide prevention. My brother took his own life and then i started D.R.C. Memorial Rides. Last year i completed a solo eight state 2,924 mile ride and was able to raise a few thousand dollars to donate to the National Suicide Prevention Society, and share my story and how I deal with depression. This year will be a 1,000 mile-r. Follow me and my rides if you like on Instagram @duds0311
