I remember being a young kid seeing motorcycles on the highway always wondering when I'd be able to have my own. Those days were the start of something special in my later years when I would finally be able to achieve a dream. I've been riding since 2007 and have been in the industry right about 7 years now. The Indian Motorcycle brand and history has always intrigued me. From back in 1897 where the legendary "Indian" name stemmed, to when in 1903 Oscar Hedstrom took an Indian from New York to Springfield and back. Most of my background lies with the Metric V-Twin side but Indian is something that's no stranger to me. I look forward to seeing everyone at the shop and making each and everyone one of y'all lifetime Woods Indian customers.
I have been riding since I was about 6 years old when I started on my little TTR 50. Ever since then, I have not been able to stay off of two wheels. I grew up riding dirt bikes through the backwoods and deserts of Idaho. Some of my fondest memories are on my dirtbike, rippin' through the mountains. Motorcycles have always been something that has been a big focal point in my family. I honestly can't remember a time when we didn't have any motorcycles. As soon as I got my Driver's Licence, I didn't waste any time getting my motorcycle endorsement. The first time I saw an Indian Motorcycle, I was hooked. There was just something about the look and the ergonomics of the bike that drew me in. I knew I had to have one! Being able to take my Scout home for the first time is a feeling that I will never forget. Four years later, my Scout is still running strong. I have taken it to Sturgis and put about 15,000 miles of immeasurable joy on it, and I have no plans to get rid of it any time soon! Once I was able to experience the thrill of an Indian Motorcycle, I knew that I had to help spread the culture and the quality of the brand. I look forward to helping people find the parts they need. I am excited to be at Woods Indian Motorcycle and can't wait to see where we go in the years to come!
