Fun Fact:  While Steve has been a lifelong motorcycle enthusiast, he broke his first bone in 2013 while riding off-road with his son.  Although he’d like to claim that he was injured while jumping over a small canyon, the accident happened when his bike was barely moving. The family vacation to the Grand Canyon was delayed until his cast was removed and he hobbled around the national parks while his family hiked the massive canyons.
