Rod began riding motorcycles well before he learned to drive. In fact, when he was just 11 years old. His uncle began importing the Deltek brand of minibike into Australia and Rod joined his cousins in the Deltek Minibike Racing Team competing at Silver Lake and Lonsdale near Adelaide.
During his time in Sydney, he voluntarily 'retired' from motorcycles for a few years, returning to the saddle when he'd learned some self-preservation skills and exhausted his scant disposable income racing cars.
No longer intimidated by the brutish Harley-Davidsons and other big cruisers like Indian and Victory, he is happily cruising the highways filing motorcycle travel stories and the occasional review for popular media and websites.
