Shannon’s first experience on two wheels started when he rode a friends Honda XR75 around local bushland. With his grandfather a motorcycle mechanic, motorcycles were in his blood. Hooked on riding and exploring, he couldn’t wait to get his licence and his first road registered bike, a Honda XR250. The purchase of a CBR900RR began his love of road bikes and also brought him and Nicole together. She rode pillion on the back of the CBR everywhere for many years. A series of road bikes followed that gave Shannon a love and appreciation of pretty much anything with two wheels and also a taste of his first Ducati. A passionate Ducatisti, Shannon can regularly be found out exploring many of the local trails on the big adventure bikes such as the Ducati DesertX and also his KTM 890R.
