As a youth I grew up in
the far western suburbs of Chicago on the edge of the border
where the farmlands meet with urban lands. I went to college
my first two years in a small city of Socorro, New Mexico
and finished my college at the University of Illinois. What
a change in lifestyle! The school in New Mexico was small
and when you walked past others on your way to class you
said “Hi” to everyone. But at the University
of Illinois there were thousands and thousands more people
and some there seemed surprised at a friendly “Good
Morning” greeting made from a passing student.
I installed manufacturing equipment for over 20 years at factories
throughout the world and have been lucky to work in every state
of our fabulous country. As a result of my travels I have had
the great fortune of working with people from all races and
diverse backgrounds. The truth is there is something I liked
about every place I worked. Every living person has some amazing
aspects when you get to talk to them!! Everybody has a different
story and a different angle from my own perspective.
I have always loved riding 2-wheel vehicles and exploring
the outdoors. When having personal conversations with my
customers, 99% of the time, this subject would come up. One
of my favorite customers from the Bronx in New York offered
me some advice. He said “Tom, you are in the wrong
line of work. You are, more than anyone I have ever met,
one that lives to ride and rides to live. You have the most
single track mind I have ever met. You are a ‘cyclepath’ biker.”
Well, to make a long story short, I want to have a positive
effect on the world and I had a brainstorm. I am an expert
trials rider of both motorcycles and bicycles. (This means
I am good at riding vehicles through extremely tough terrain,
at slow speeds, and not falling down. I never needed the
fast speed factor to have fun.) So here is my idea.
I have the most amazing, unique motorized trail bikes in
the world. They are specifically designed to go slow, are
quiet, are lightweight, and beginner friendly, yet capable
of also providing extreme fun for expert bicyclists and motorcyclists.
These bikes are the perfect vehicle for sightseeing and exploring
wonderful and vast Moab terrain in a completely new and unique
way that offers the best of mountain biking, motorcycling,
rock crawling, and hiking combined.
I would love to take you on a personal tour on my bikes while
you are here in Moab. There is no place in the world that
has this much natural beauty. Lets go have some fun and I
will show you another fascinating perspective of Moab different
from any other activity you have ever done.
I would like to especially thank the Moab community for being
so kind and helpful in getting my dreams off the ground.
