Daniel, the subject of countless documentaries, was born in Des Moines, Iowa. Talent abound, Daniel is capable of hurling playing cards at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. He once read “Moby Dick”, “War and Peace” and “Curious George Goes to the Zoo” in one day and still had time to restore a 1939 Chris-Craft Barrelback that evening. Daniel knows the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. He has performed several covert, top-secret operations for the FBI. Daniel sleeps once a month. While on vacation in Poland, he successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of gravity do not apply to him. Also, he has an affinity for motorcycles. He is a vintage Harley parts aficionado. Daniel grew up skateboarding and BMX biking and general hooligan-ing around various small towns around the Midwest. When not at work, you can find Daniel hanging out with his brilliant daughter, Jordyn, and (way too hot for him) wife, Amy.
Jacquie may love her CBR500r (Fenrir) more than any other possession in the world. With a passion for riding and everything it entails, she’s excited to learn everything she can while here at Simply Ride. In addition to motorcycles and mechanics, she is also very much into indie video games, D&D, martial arts, touring, and long theological discussions (she can easily talk your ear off about anything). When she’s not giving Olie(Ben) a hard time you’ll probably see her nose deep into researching elements of the motorcycle industry…while simultaneously shopping for toys for Fenrir.
Trevor has been riding motorcycles since 18. He is currently riding a yz450f super-moto on the streets and an R6 racing with the CRA in Brainerd. He started track days in 2016 with ZARS and picked up racing with the CRA in 2018. He spends his free time working on my bikes (4 at the moment) xr50,kx250f,yz450f, and an R6. Trevor loves to enrich his knowledge of motorcycles by being hands-on. His dream is to someday become a pro racer. For now, he is content with being an enthusiast, spending the majority of his paychecks on race tires and track time.
Nate bought his very first motorcycle from Simply Ride in 2015, a 2004 Kawasaki ZX6R! After being welcomed into the motorcycle community by everyone here at the shop, he knew he wanted to work at SSB. He’s been working at Simply on and off for the last 4 seasons, switching between parts and sales. He’s had an absolute blast! Nate has changed a lot as a rider over the last 5 years. He now owns a BMW F800GS, Ducati Monster 796, and a Yamaha YZ250. He’s slowly morphing into an off-road rider and he’s loving the new challenges (log hops, wheelies, jumps, and drifts). He has a passion for the new riders because it reminds him of himself 5 years ago. He strives every day to give each guest the same experience he got when he started!
Steve dreams of motorcycles new and old, red or black, fast or slow. When he isn’t dreaming of motorcycles he thinks about food. Hot or cold, savory or sweet, and definitely not fast.
