Meet Stu H. from California.
He's been racing for 44 years and in the last little while he's be doing it with Fibromyalgia. He recently picked up a motorcycle helmet from us and over the course of some emails we discovered that to us, he truly is the embodiment of what this sport is built on; a deep love of motorcycling. We asked Stu if we could share some of his story on our blog. He obliged.
He noted his career highlights were racing A.H.R.M.A. in 2006, 2007, 2008 and getting to race at Daytona. His best formula 500 finish was on a Dave Evans built CB 550 Honda in 1975.
After four and a half decades of riding, ripping and racing, he's not about to let a doctor tell him he's too old or too sick to do anything. "Racing and riding keep you young", he says.
Damn right Stu. I want to be you when I grow up.
