Originally from Detroit Michigan, Gary Dixon now calls Clearwater Florida his home. Gary lived the biggest part of his life in the city of Detroit, which is often called "The Motor City." He was born in the heart of the baby boom era in the late nineteen fifties. Surrounded by motor vehicles his whole life gave him no choice but to become a master mechanic, and also the knowledge to write this book. He has been riding motorcycles, and performing work on them the biggest part of his life. He hopes young riders will read this book, and absorb as much information as possible so his knowledge can be passed on.
