Growing up, Gary’s dad was a car dealer and had someone trade in two Honda 50 mini bikes, one blue and one red. He remembers getting on them at 8 a.m. and not getting off until the street lights came on. Ever since, his passion for motorcycles has grown and six-years-ago he bought Calgary Harley-Davidson® because Harley’s are the oldest and most prestigious bikes in the world. His need for speed is evident from his two favourite bikes, the Trask Turbo Speed Glide and his Jim Nazi bar hopper with nitrous oxide. Some of Gary’s most memorable riding experiences were his trip from San Diego on Hwy 1 in California almost all the way to Portland and riding through the beautiful countryside of Italy. Gary loves riding his bikes and travelling Europe. He counts each day as a blessing and enjoys living life to the fullest as you never know when the good Lord will take it away.

Jake grew up bombing around on dirt bikes on the outskirts of Calgary, and had to be called off the dirt trails to drive his wife to the hospital for the birth of their son.
