Anthony has always been incredibly passionate about riding motorcycles since 1974 When his Dad would put him on the front of the tank and ride all over the place. My dad whilst in the Airforce supplemented our family’s income by fixing and building bikes for the greater Homestead Airforce base area when stationed in Florida. I got my first YZ80 Dirt Bike when I was 8, Honda CR80, CR125, CR250, CR450. Later Anthony and his dad rebuilt a Honda 650 CB when he was only 16, and that was his first road bike. He rode all over the greater Ft. Worth and Dallas area on that bike. He later graduating to bigger bikes and now rides a 2001 Dyna Super Glide he proudly calls Miss Frankenstein. Riding opens Anthony’s breath and makes him feel alive. Riding is his outlet and coping mechanism in a world gone mad so to speak.
Anthony currently lives in Utah with his Wife Tiffany an Elementary School Teacher, and his 7 kids ranging from ages a year old to 21 years old.
