Got his first street bike when he was 16 years old. Over the years he has owned a number of different styles of bikes, cruisers, street, and sport bikes. One of Nader’s favorite trips on a bike was riding around Australia for four months. He bought a motorcycle in Sydney for $1000, and put on it about 12000 km travelling up and down the east coast, then he sold it two days before his flight back home for $800. Nader says: “The best way ever to see a place is on two wheels, and not in a box.”
Nader has also raced motorcycles for few years in the early 90s, in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, and Portland. Throughout the years he have seen many people get hurt because they did not receive proper training and did not have enough respect for the sport, this made him want to get involved and make a difference.
For Stampede Driving School Students, Nader recommends: “Educate yourself, take motorcycle courses, safely practice, and get involved as knowledge is key”.
