Hello from North America! Mark Collier here, looking forward to working with the Twin Pegs group to provide better, more comfortable motorcycle riding. Like many, I’m a lifelong motorcyclist. Rode them all, Honda, Harley, then I grew up, Ducati and now BMW. I’ve owned several, most recently, I ride both a GS and GSA. I have felt the unnecessary pain of single point foot pegs and expect that a twin peg system would provide better control, better balance, a more secure riding platform especially when riding while standing.
My background is aviation. Licensed FAA Commercial pilot with fixed and rotary-wing flight & instrument certifications. While serving in the US Coast Guard and Navy, I flew missions around the world and was a Maintenance Test Pilot in the SH-60 airframe, I’m also “type-rated” in the SK-64 SkyCrane.
I’ve performed motorcycle test and evaluation for aftermarket windshields for both R1200GS and GSA, making modifications to form and fit. I enjoy the possibility of making improvements, adjustments to OEM & aftermarket gear to make the best out of our motorcycling experience.
I am an Ambassador for BMW Riders of Oregon, and I’m glad to be part of this team!
