"My favorite part by far about riding is the community."

Location: San Diego, California.

Motorcycles I own: 2017 BMW R1200GSA and 2009 BMW G650 X-Country.

Places I ride most often: California Desert and the surrounding region.

Mosko Luggage I currently own: Backcountry 25L / 35L Pannier Kit, Backcountry 40L Duffle, Scout 30 Duffle, Reckless 80 v3, Reckless 10, Stinger 8, Nomad Tank Bag, Hood Tank Bag, and Pico Tank Bag. 

Mosko Apparel I currently own: Basilisk Jacket and Pants, Rak Jacket and Pants, and Woodsman Pants.

Motorcycle Groups/Clubs I participate in: Flying Monkey Adv Riders and San Diego Adv Riders.

Why I choose Mosko Moto over other brands: Out of the box thinking and always looking to push the envelope. Mosko has always tried to do what they thought would work for them instead of working within the same framework as everyone else.

What makes me want to be involved with the ADV Riding community: I enjoy meeting new people and discussing trips past, present, and future. It’s always fun to learn about new places to visit or maybe some new tips and tricks for my own future adventures. 

Bio: Being from Idaho, the outdoors is ingrained in me. When we weren’t screaming at each other playing cards, you could find my dad and I fishing, camping, or hunting. I was lucky enough to learn to ride dirt bikes and four-wheelers in the shadow of the Tetons. That’s where I developed a deep love and respect for the remoteness of the Rocky Mountain backcountry. In high school, I was introduced to a 1974 BMW R90/6 by my friend's dad. Since then, I knew that on two wheels was where I was meant to be. When I moved to San Diego I bought my first R1200GS. Nothing is more challenging and satisfying than getting that behemoth through the unpredictable terrain of the Southern California desert. For over a decade it’s weaved through lanes of traffic and been stuck in the sand more times than I can count. But my favorite part by far about riding is the community. You meet some wacky and wonderful people on the road; some of them turn into hilarious campfire stories and some become the very people that surround your campfire. There’s no community like the ADV community.
