First Encounters and Lasting Memories

“When you think of classics, what comes to your mind?” asks Ross, a passionate biker from the Biker Talk team. For Iggy, it was the Suzuki GS-1000s. The very first time he laid eyes on this beauty, Iggy recalls being completely taken aback. The stories of West Cooley and Pops Yoshimura only added to the allure, painting a vivid picture of racing glory and unmatched craftsmanship.

Now, Iggy proudly houses two of these iconic Suzuki models in his garage. But, he’s quick to point out a belief that resonates with many: “You don’t necessarily need the biggest or fastest motorcycle to embark on an adventure.”

Bikes, A Family Affair

Iggy’s love for bikes isn’t a recent infatuation. With 40 years of riding under his belt, he credits his father for instilling this passion in him. Growing up, their home echoed with the purrs and roars of various bikes, thanks to his dad’s mechanical prowess. “It’s more than just machines; it’s memories, connections, and emotions,” Iggy shares with a nostalgic twinkle in his eye.
