Meet the New Rider: John Wener (Paco)

Paco John # 851 became familiar with the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge while sipping a bloody Mary at a place called Pepper’s 401 sitting next to Dick Rutherford #781 who had just participated in the HHMC in 2014. When Dick learned Paco was from Fl. he shared that he had started the HHMC in Key West Fl. heading for Homer, AK but stopped in Seattle knowing his limitations and he had reached it. Paco was hooked. Needing to know more he started looking into what he had to do to ride. Because you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a HHMC rider in Florida, Paco ended up at lunch with Jeff Kohn #168, Chris Drake #190 and Robert Saunooke # 814 and learned he needed an American made oil cooled motorcycle so he will be riding his new 2015 Indian Chieftain. 

Loving long distance travel but never experiencing it from the back of a motorcycle Paco is looking forward to a new side of a sport he is very familiar with. He has told everyone he knows about the HHMC but says his friends are going to watch him this year and see how he does then maybe next time. Star-Brite products are Pacos sponsor. Any financial sponsorship will be directed to forward directly to Pine Ridge Area Chamber of Commerce. This way people feel more connected to the cause they are supporting.
