No, but back when I still had my bike I use to go on Thursday night dinner rides with him and about a dozen or so other bikers. We would meet up at his shop after work and pick a place to ride to for dinner. This was before Strokers bar was built. We had many a good times.
I've heard several people say he's a dick, but I honestly don't know why. I got to know him well enough to know that aint true. It's cool to see how far he's come along, since back in the day.
