Tom Pemberton

A self-proclaimed classicist, Tom likes Wile E. Coyote and vintage bikes: the former, because he loves actual coyotes did his graduate work on Canine Predation on Livestock, and the latter because vintage bikes have more flair (and anyone who says different can run into this tunnel he just painted on a very big rock). Having had been the Rider Education Coordinator for BMW Motorcycle Owners of America for 4 years, he rides a 2007 BMW F800ST out of habit and has been teaching riders for over 12 years. He enjoys seeing people make progress and improve their technique.

In his spare time, he restores vintage bikes and is currently working on a 1960 BMW R-26 Single and a 1977 Yamaha XS500D.
