Brad

Brad's first roadtrip was up the side of a barn and over a fence on a Honda 70. After that he learned to turn, and has been enjoying riding ever since.

He's been variously obsessed with road bikes, dirt-bikes (still his main love), and vintage machines, and has restored or rescued a number of motorcycles ranging from a 1948 BSA Goldstar (stolen before it was completed) to a 1973 BMW R50/5 to a 1995 KX500, and more.

He is currently in search of his next off-roader.

The French company Shark is relatively new to the U.S. market, but they'll definitely draw attention to themselves with ...
