What I do for Fun:  Play with his Daughters… Anything the two Girls Wants To Do!

Jeff interest in motorcycle came from his teens after watching Easy Rider….. It was in his blood.  He started working when he was 15 to save up for his first bike….. A 1980 Honda CB750, it was pretty rough when he purchased it and he rode it until it died.  That bike gave him an opportunity to develop his mechanical and technical skills, along with a real sense of satisfaction from working on bikes.  After several sequences with College, and always being drawn back to Motorcycles…. He purchased his first Harley-Davidson and was hooked.  He decided that becoming a Motorcycle Tech was the right professional path to follow.  Jeff graduated from MMI in Phoenix where his focus was on V-Twin products and joined ABG in late 2009.  Jeff now rides a 2009 Harley Davidson Road King…. And he has made several modifucations to meet his desire.  You will often see Jeff out enjoying his Bike, Friends and the Riding Experience at Bike Nights.  Jeff enjoys motorcycles, however, they are second to his Family and his wonderful Daughters that are the center of his universe.
