(THE RACE OF GENTLEMEN “TROG”)
What I love about American History
At Black Bear Brand, our purpose is fueled by making and doing. Drawing from the past, we explore and attack our goals. The desire and determination to compete in The Race of Gentlemen fits like a glove as part of Black Bear Brand and our approach as a Union of Makers.
The Race of Gentlemen is a celebration of our American history in the best way. I am drawn to TROG by everything it invokes: my love for America, Harley Davidson, speed, machines, racing, building, charging, team work, reflecting on history, and doing things that have a meaning. I decided I had to participate in this event. I didn’t know how I would do it, I didn’t have the right bike, I didn’t have anything I needed. I’ve been in this situation before when I wanted something, I felt that I needed to do it, and that was all it took. My determination took over at that point, and sometimes determination is all that is needed.
