Current favorite ride - 2016 KTM 690 enduro R
Brief riding history – Starting riding at the age of eight. I lived in the country so I would come home from school every day and head out on my trusty XR75, I ended up wearing out 2 motors before moving to the mad world of two strokes, motocross and enduro racing.
Since then I have never looked back, with lots of dirt riding as well as road bikes. I rode the factory Ducati Enduro across America as part of an around the world program Ducati were running. I travelled the world in 2017 on my KTM 690 to help raise funds and awareness for Water for Africa which I am an ambassador for.
Best ride/tour ever – It’s hard to go past crossing the Kalahari desert in Namibia solo, incredible landscapes and dunes that are beyond epic.
Honorable mention goes to the Victorian High country.
Favorite WA ride area - I love the old growth forests around Pemberton and Manjimup
Best bike ever built – Suzuki RG500 sheer madness but what a rush - I had one of the first ones in Australia as a 19 year old, still here to tell the stories
The bike you learnt to ride on – 1974 grey tank Honda XR75
