Rob DiQuattro edit

This is some of my favorite footage from Rob ever. That means a lot considering I have been riding with him for about 10 years now. He is headed to Scotland soon and I cannot wait to see what he accomplishes there.

Jeff Klugiewicz, Rob Diquattro, T.J. Henderson, Nick Wilbat, Anthony Loconte, Ryan Wayne and myself headed out on an excursion to loop Lake Michigan and scope out the Upper Peninsula while camping out along the way. We stopped in a few cities, rode some bikes, took a ferry over to Mackinac Island and laughed our asses off the entire four day trip. It was something I think we all needed as summer was winding down; a relaxing trip with a group of rad dudes.

Huge thanks to Poler for helping us out on the trip and props to Anthony Loconte for living with a camera strapped to his hand the entire time.

Jeff Icepick Mackinac

So, about a month ago, I put together a trip for some of us midwest guys: Jeff K, T.J. Henderson, Rob Diquattro, Ryan Wayne, Nick Wilbat, Anthony Loconte and myself to head out on a four day adventure to camp around Lake Michigan. We didn’t go into the trip thinking it would be 100% riding and I don’t think any of us wanted or needed that anyway.

Poler helped us get outfitted with some camping gear, as pretty much none of us were experienced campers and most of us had little to no camping experience. As with any trip nothing goes exactly as planned and time constraints didn’t’ allow us to get in everything we wanted and we definitely didn’t get to ride as much street as we would have liked, but that didn’t keep anyone down. We all had a blast and laughed the entire trip, especially from all of Rob’s antics and newly acquired front brake skills on a bike nearly half the size of his own.

TULSA MAIN PIC

Last month I was fortunate enough to partake in a journey with several of my friends to Tulsa, Oklahoma. I had originally proposed the idea a month or more before the trip occurred and did not hear anything about it until a few days before. It was a surprise to me that it was actually occurring.

Scotty Wemmer, Bobby Simmons and Rob DiQuattro had all journeyed to Columbus to meet up with Scott Marceau and myself. From there the five of us had headed down to Louisville, Kentucky to stay the night at Jordan Stump’s house. In the morning Phil Bossmeyer and Tyler “Kid” Rembold had shown up after they had worked all night. The Word Crew (Jordan, Phil and Tyler) all work third shift and had little rest for the 10 hour adventure we had ahead of us. The 8 of us packed up the bags and bikes and then headed out west.

The photos taken documented the entire trip; Hotels to hospitals and everything in between.
