Rod is from Worthington, Minnesota. He was introduced to Autobahn when he met several Autobahners at a gas station in Blue Earth, MN. All were returning from the Hiawatha Rally held at Money Creek. Rod joined the club in September. He started riding motorcycles in 1964 on a Bridgestone 90. In the mid 90’s he purchased his first BMW, an R75. He purchased an 1150GS in 2006 and from then on was convinced BMW was “thee” bike. He currently rides a 1200GS Triple Black.
Rod’s granddaughter ,11 at the time, gave him the “mohawk” for a Christmas present. He put it on his helmet and “it has been with me on all of my trips since then”.
