Bob Gill

Public Relations

I am presently living in Kelligrews where the sun does shine more. I started riding motorcycle in 1972 on my brothers Honda 125cc. The training ground consisted of my Dad's potato field. I worked up to my present ride of a 2013 Suzuki C90 BOSS - Blacked Out Special Suzuki. I have ridden around Eastern Canada and the Eastern Shores of the USA but the best was the Grand Canyon, a rental, but a great trip. I have helped out with the Club's main fund raiser,our Christmas time Harley giveaway,for many years either selling tickets offshore or distributing to others. I have helped with the final talleys at the end which sounds easier than it looks. My intention is to help others in the biking communitee meet a great bunch of people and help those under privilaged sick children through our Newfound Foundation. I joined NFR on 2006 and have not looked back. We are always looking for members that enjoy riding, raising donations for charities and just having fun.
