Treasurer and Trustee

I’ve loved motorbikes since I was an early teenager growing up in northern Ohio. I scrimped and saved until I could buy a Fox mini-bike at age 14. My heart was broken when it was stolen by a local kid who wanted it badly enough to take it from my garage. I bought a basket case 125cc Ducati in 1967 and managed to get it put together and running. I soon graduated to a 250 Scrambler that I loved. I took a break from motorcycling for several decades as a result of having three sons and never enough money to buy a bike.

I bought a K75 in 2002 and quickly found the Greater Cincinnati BMW Club (GCBMWC) and made many good friends there. I have and continue to learn a great deal about riding, bike maintenance and how to enjoy life from them as well as many others I have had the good fortune to meet. I soon graduated to an R1200C and then to a R1150RT. I became interested in older BMW’s and purchased an R90/6 with a Dnepr sidecar. It has been great fun to ride and work on. I am a member of the GCBMWC, the RA (where I am Treasurer), the MOA, Airheads Beemer Club and the AMA in addition to the Vintage Club.

I have been a CPA since 1973. Believe it or not, I actually enjoy the work I do. Not as much as motorcycling but pretty much never-the-less.
