Micah Huntzinger | @jackelfox | Denver, Colorado
As a busy entrepreneur with a hand in multiple businesses, Micah’s true passion lies in exotic European motorcycles and photography. A rider for 14 years, the intersection of a personal attraction for bikes and interest in the still image reflect on the content he is driven to put out. Having already attended the One Show in Portland, Oregon earlier this year, Micah is eager to hit the road to the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show to capture all the creativity and excitement in Austin. Astride his Ducati XDiavel and equipped with his X.WST2 Carbon Zero, he’s ready for this moto-adventure. Follow his ride and our other #nexx2austin riders’ journeys on our Instagram page!
Colin Cornberg | @number8wiremoto | Philipsburg, Montana
An immigrant from New Zealand, Colin is Number 8 Wire Motorcycles, a passionate rider and custom builder. A bicycle mechanic and semi-pro level racer in a past life, a passion for anything with two wheels and can go fast ultimately led to the pursuit of his own custom motorcycle shop. In addition to building bikes, Colin has a intense fascination with riding them, having done numerous asphalt touring and off-road trips across the United States, as well as a recent three week journey in the Indian Himalayas. Colin is bringing his latest creation, a supercharged Harley Davidson Street 750, to the Handbuilt Show this year. Follow along when he will be wearing a matching NEXX X.G100R Grand Win to shakedown and road test his supercharged bike along the route.
Alex Baldridge | @twowheelsparttime | Nashville, Tennessee
After taking a new rider course on a whim, Alex now looks back at it as the second best decision he’s ever made (the first was marrying his best friend Katie). While he find his day job in cancer research massively fulfilling, in his spare time he’s feverishly talking about motorcycles, thinking about motorcycles, riding motorcycles, or all 3 at once. Thriving off of coffee, bikes, and constant travel, he frequently combines them on regular tours both overseas and throughout the United States. He stoically believes there always moto-adventures to be had, and new friends to be made. Follow his ride down to Austin in an X.R2 Carbon, with a full ride report to follow on www.bike-urious.com
Katie Lovelace Baldridge | @katielb213 | Nashville, Tennessee
When Katie isn’t on her beloved bike, she’s helping others better themselves as a nutritionist and personal trainer. As soon as she started riding 7 years ago, she fell in love with the exhilaration and empowerment that motorcycling brings. Bikes have provided an inlet into a diverse, entertaining, and loving group of women that she would never have met otherwise. Katie spends warm weekends winding through Tennessee backroads with her husband Alex, or with her all-female riders group, the Litas. Her favorite two-wheeled adventures include destination moto-camping and an epic trip exploring the twisty Scotland countryside. Follow her experience in Austin, where she’ll be in her X.G100R Motodrome.
