Meet the Rider: Dave Lutes # 91
Dave #91 has ridden in all of the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge events and after learning we were heading to Alaska and had been there in 2006, thought it was a good excuse to go back. Some of the toughest things he had to face during the first event was a lack of sleep and not “really knowing what he was doing.” He felt like he was in a daze most of that year. Over the years he has learned how to deal with these things and likes to sleep next to heat ex-changers from outside refrigeration systems to keep warm on those cold rainy nights he has experienced in the past. Loving the rural roads and long distance riding has been good but says it really “messed up his desire to do poker runs. If you don’t do a couple hundred miles you haven’t ridden.” He loves to leave flyers on motorcycles he sees in parking lots and sharing his love for the HHMC.
