What inspired you to start riding motorcycles? I rode for a few years as a kid, and then never really rode again until about 14 years ago. I always wanted a Kawasaki Ninja, I first had a 650 but now have a Z1000. I love to go fast and doing that on a bike is just an amazing feeling.

Where is your favorite place to ride?  Wickenburg to Prescott, Arizona, has the best twisties!

Where is the single-most epic place you’ve ridden a motorcycle? Same. Wickenburg to Prescott, AZ.

If you could ride anywhere in the world, where would that be? Isle of Man—but not racing!!

What is the coolest motorcycle you’ve ever ridden? I like turtles and I love my Z1000.

Bob's Kawasaki Z1000 is his favorite bike to date! Until...

If you could ride any single motorcycle in the world, what would it be? BMW S1000RR! 

So dreamy!

What does motorcycling mean to you and your lifestyle? I love to ride. I tend to take a few three-day trips throughout the year and just ride somewhere. I miss living in AZ, as I used to ride there a lot more. There were a couple of riding groups that rode pretty much every Saturday.

Are you a lone wolf or a social butterfly? Hmm, both. There are times when I love to be around other people and then there are times that I love to be alone. That holds true for riding. I used to love group rides but many times I preferred to ride alone at my pace, and go where I want to go.

What about the Rever app do you like most? Twisty Road function!!

Tell us more about your work history?  I have been doing full time Ruby on Rails development since about 2009. I have worked for big corps, startups, and done a lot of contract gigs. I think it has given me the opportunity to learn different techniques and how to inject myself into existing development teams.

Why did you want to work at REVER? OMG, MOTORCYCLES! I already had the REVER app and I would get the normal marketing emails. Then I got one and almost deleted it, until I saw that it was from a recruiter!  That was a great day.

Tell us one fun fact about you? I am a big nerd and have spent years working on my family genealogy.  Fun fact, not sure, but it is a fact.
