Bob rode his first motorcycle, a Honda 300, in 1974 and has enjoyed the feeling of the open air and freedom ever since. He has been employed at TravelPort since1992 as a Server Engineer. Bob and his wife CJ have been married for 26 years and they have 2 daughters Michelle & Alexis.
Bob has always enjoyed riding but took a few years off to raise a family. For his 50th birthday his wife bought him a 99 Yamaha Roadstar and they ride as often as possible with a teenager at home.
Bob completed the BRC and learned that after all his years of riding he could still learn something new. This got him interested in getting his Georgia MSF RiderCoach Certification. He is looking forward to instructing new riders on how to ride safely.
