Mike Le Pard “Mike or totalmotorcycle” – Contact Me here or Here

I am honoured to help support motorcyclists and motorcycling worldwide through Total Motorcycle for the past 10 years. But I cannot have done it alone and I give credit to all my staff, members and millions of visitors who have made Total Motorcycle extremely successful.

I cannot think of a better use of my time than to help others and Total Motorcycle ticks that box perfectly. Thank you for making Total Motorcycle your virtual motorcycle destination!

I’m a former bus driver (now office worker) that has been riding for 5 years now. If you ride on two wheels and go out in traffic every day, you’re one of us.

I’m happy to help out as a Moderator here at TMW, because it is one of the very few sites on the vast world of internet sites that welcomes all bikes and all types of riding. We’re all part of the 2 wheeling community.

I currently divide my riding time between commuting back and forth to work everyday, day trips on my days off, and teaching people how to ride. (I recently got certified to be a motorcycle instructor).

My 650 V-Star has taken me long distance touring, grocery shopping and just joy riding around town. I’m saving for an upgrade……

Riding a motorcycle feeds my sense of adventure (and I like the camaraderie of the motorcycle community).

Favourite colour changes almost daily. Usually it’s whatever I took out of my closet that day. I am partial to blue, green, purple, black, red and pink.
Favourite food could be spaghetti and meatballs with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
Favourite music Play the blues and I’ll be dancing.
Favourite hobbies (aside from my motorcycle) photography, baking, my garden and TMW.
Turn offs – rude people and bad drivers, control freaks and needy men
Turn ons – kindness and sincerity, strong hands and gentle heart

I’m a former Canadian Army Sergeant, now working as a Millwright, that has been riding and wrenching on bikes for over 27 years now. I truly believe that if it has two wheels and an engine, it doesn’t matter where it was built. That’s why I’m proud to help out as a Moderator here at TMW, because it is one of the very few sites on the vast interweb that matches my feelings and beliefs about motorcycles and the people who ride them. We’re all brothers and sisters here!

I currently divide my riding time between an ’07 Harley-Davidson Road Glide and an ’05 Ural Tourist sidecar rig. The Harley is for long distance touring from April to November and the Ural is mostly for off road adventures with my dog Hector as well as for getting beer, groceries, hauling camping equipment and anything else that I can cram in there any day, every day, 365 days a year.

Past bikes: ’06 Harley FXDI Super Glide, ’04 Harley FLHT Electra Glide Standard, ’79 Dnepr MT10-36, ’99 Kawasaki Drifter 1500, ’01 Triumph Tiger 955i, ’95 Triumph Thunderbird, ’86 Sportster XLH1100, ’71 BSA A65 Thunderbolt, ’81 Honda CX500 Custom, ’80 Honda CB650 and a couple of old British project bikes that never saw the road.

Fave colour: Blue. No, wait… Flat Black
Fave food: Ribs and Wings
Turn ons: Traffic free roads, cheap beer, fast women, weekends
Turn offs: Poseurs, Wal-Mart, Cell phone yapping Yuppies
If I Were A Tree, I’d Be: Way too smart to answer dumb questions like this
