Richard Florence

Richard is a free-lance design engineer who has worked on everything from hi-tech ski boots to advanced medical gear. He has one of the coolest cafe-racer styled Commandos in the club, featuring a big 4LS drum brake from a Yamaha TD2 racer (see below). Richard has been known to ride it great distances in all weather from his home in Steamboat Springs to club events such as Cotopaxi, but the clip-ons kept getting lower and lower. A couple years ago he bought a modern bike and tends to choose that for longer rides now. Inspired by Dave Webster, he built his own Cobra replica a few years ago, but now that's for sale. Richard seems to be in danger of becoming sensible in his later years! Richard is seen below at the June BBQ.
