Shannon Sutherland (Street Articles Author)

I am an Arkansas resident recently out of University with my degree in I.T. With a technical background, a degree in IT, and my own computer/networking business, I am well versed in computers and the technology behind it.

However, although I do enjoy – as well as spend the majority of my time with – computers there is one hobby that I truly enjoy that gives me a break from computers and that is motorcycles. I have grown up around motorcycles: riding them, driving them, and all around enjoying everything about them. While I do respect all types of motorcycle I am particular to the area of sport bikes. Having owned and driven many different bikes I can safely say I have a true appreciation for these powerful street machines.

I hope to further express my passion through this site by providing my knowledge of what I love along with the any knowledge I can gain from anyone willing to lend me some. I am always available for questions or discussion so feel free to get in touch with me anytime!

Thanks and Enjoy! -Shannon
