Dave Kristal

Dave recommends taking a rider course regardless of your experience, “…when you think you know it all, you still learn something. Even after riding for 13 years and serving as a Road Captain for Merrimack Valley Chapter HOG, I take a course every now and then. I learn something new every time. It makes me a better rider.”
Dave joined the MMA even though he’s “not big into politics, and I don't feel I have the time or patience. But, I respect what the MMA stands for and does for rider rights. Everyone deserves the right of Freedom of Choice. I don't care how you vote, or what you are voting on, we should all have the right to chose.”

Safety & Education Director
Bill Cheetham

Bill started riding in 1980 on a 1972 Honda 750. He rode until 1991, on the 750 and a 1976 Honda Gold Wing. Raising a family kept him off saddle until August of 2004, when he went out for dinner one night and came home owning a 2001 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic. Bill took an MSF class at the urging of some friends, and was so impressed with the course that he became a Rider Coach the following spring. Bill considers himself lucky that he gets to share his passion for riding with those eager to learn, including his family. His favorite riding partners are his daughter and his fiancée, who are both MSF course graduates who ride their own.

A background in law enforcement, security and motorcycling gives Bill a unique perspective into motorcyclist’s rights and responsibilities. In addition, his 20+ years as a member of the Masons has instilled a sense of service and community involvement. These are what brought Bill to the MMA, and he is very much looking forward to serving as District 2 Representative.

Member Services Director
Kevin Raiche
Kevin rode in the 80s and took time off to race cars, returning in 2004. 2 Years later, Kevin joined the Cruiser Club of Boston and became President in 2008.

Over these years, Kevin noticed that there are people who are prejudiced against motorcyclists. When the CCB had a problem with an exhaust EPA stamp in a local community, the MMA stepped up to help them, and they won!

It was then that Kevin realized just how important the MMA is to all motorcycle riders, Whether you ride a sport bike,a cruiser or any other motorcycle the MMA will fight for your rights!

John Pecora
District 1 Manager
John Pecora

John began riding in the '60s, during a time when motorcyclists were free to ride without helmets. For many years, he only dreamed of riding while he served in the military, married and raised his children and established his business. During those years, the passion for riding remained strong, and in 1993, he purchased a used '88 Soft Tail. This time he never looked back! In 2000, he joined the MMA to get involved with protecting biker's rights and all rider freedoms. John has previously served at Middlesex County Rep. Get involved or don't complain!

Ron Baldwin
District 1 Representative
Ron Baldwin

Ron began riding in the spring of 2007 after taking a Motorcycle Rider Safety Course. Beginning with a Yamaha 250 Virago to get back and forth to the train station, his passion for riding grew, and he upgraded to a Yamaha 1100 Silverado, and eventually a 2009 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic.

 
Joining the Cruiser Club Boston in 2008, Ron learned about the MMA and what they were doing to protect Motorcyclist Rights and joined that same year.
 
A firm believer of Rider Safety & Education, Ron became lead road captain with the CCBB in 2011, and has been a staunch supporter of the MMA. Realizing that riders' rights are becoming more constrictive; what we can do to our rides, where we can ride, and how we can ride, Ron decided to take on a bigger role with the MMA as District I Representative.

Ron says, "Join the MMA and help us, help you, to keep your freedom to ride as you want!"

Vasco-2015

District 2 Manager
Vasco Nunez

Vasco started riding in the late 1950's on a Sears Cushman motor scooter that he converted into a "Dirt Scooter" on his Uncle's farm in Maryland. Finding an old WWII BMW on that farm, he turned it into a "wanna-be" chopper. off road became exciting and Vasco started tearing up the woods of New England until numerous bumps and bruises caused him to give up off-road for a 1968 Harley Sportster 900CH.

 
Moving to Cape Cod, Vasco gave up motorcycling for a short period until a friend gave him a 1947 Harley 750cc dirt racer with a suicide shifter. With many parts, pieces, and oil flying, he met the love of his wife with whom he's been married for over 40 years! 2 girls, and 2 grandkids (one of whom wants his bike) later, it's a family passion for the Nunez clan!
 
In 2004, Vasco purchased a Honda Goldwing and became active with the Goldwing Road Riders Association, riding over 13,000 miles every year. A few years later, Vasco downsized to a Suzuki Boulevard "Bagger" and at the same time began riding with a group on the Cape for Sunday rides, all of whom were MMA members.
 
Invited to a MMA meeting, Vasco liked what he heard and after many years finally took a MSF rider course which he credits for breaking way too many bad habits and teaching him new ideas. The MMA meeting was the first time he'd heard "Safety" used with the term Motorcycle, and protection of his rights. Since 2008, Vasco has been an active member, participating in many "Storm the State House" and Toy Run" rides as well as writing letter so his legislators. He's now committed to his role as District II Representative, and says, "the MMA is Massachusetts only outlet to freedom for the Motorcyclist! Please join us, your vote counts, your voice is heard, and your presence at the State House is noticed!"

Rachel Ingham Bio

District 3 Manager
Rachel Ingham

 

Rachel started riding at the age of 12, spending every weekend with her cousin on their Yamaha Enduro 125's. Being a rebel, she registered it on the road at age 16 and rode it every day to school (catholic school) -- the nuns loved her!

Starting a family at the young age of 18, Rachel was married and hung up her riding boots until the age of 45. Claiming she was sick of watching all her friends go off and ride, she sold her Jet Ski and turned it into a Harley Custom 1200 Sportster Low, and never looked back.

2 years after her husband got sick of watching her take off without him to go ride with her friends, he too began riding. Rachel upgraded to a 2000 Dyna Super Sport 5 years ago and now they ride together.

Rachel said, "I attend many events as well as have volunteered for past 3 years at the Boston wounded vets run. Riding is my passion and I look forward to being more involved with the MMA!!"

Rocco Libertine
District 4 Manager
Rocco Libertine

Rocco Libertine started riding in the late 1970's, on a 350 two-banger, and experienced that feeling we all know so well, of being un-caged. Like most of us, he jumped on that bike, kicked it to life, and started to ride - self-taught. Experiences since have shown him the value of rider training. After a long break from riding, (career and kids), the road called to him once again, and after a brief fling with an '01 Victory, his current love is his 2010 Road King. Rocco became a member of the MMA in order to help promote our mission, increase rider visibility, and ride with folks who care about our biking community.

Nick Dunse
Bristol County Rep.

I started riding in the 70’s. I bought my first HD after returning from overseas US ARMY, 1978. Soon there after I got involved in biker rights and joined the MMA the same year after being stopped several times for my exhaust and helmet -- which at the time were both legal. Being a dedicated and very strong union member I knew there was strength in numbers and we must protect our rights to ride a modified motorcycle. The best thing a rider can do is join the MMA no matter what type of bike you ride. Join the MMA and make sure we support those who support us.

Michael and his wife normally put on about 17,000 miles per year covering a lot of the East Coast and Canada. Ten years ago, a friend talked them into going to DC for a Rolling Thunder event on Memorial Day Weekend. Michael was so moved by the event and the organization that he had to be part of it. Michael and 3 friends formed the Vermont 1 Chapter. After about 5 years and many events and benefit rides, the Membership had grown. Michael says, "my wife and I had decided to take a break and enjoy being spectators again. I have been a member of the MMA for a number of years.

I have gone to the Fall Round Up for several years and have had a good time every year. I joined the MMA to support motorcycle safety and freedom for all riders. I want my family & friends to be safe while riding.

Ray Pike III
Norfolk County Rep.
Ray Pike III

 

Ray first began motorcycling in the late 80s with his first bike, a 500cc Yamaha. He currently rides a '93 FLT Ultra Classic. About ten years later he joined the MMA because "it seemed like the right thing to do if (we) don't want to lose the rights (we) still have" in the State. As the Norfolk County Rep he works to promote safe and responsible legislation, retain current freedoms, and regain a few lost. "The MMA is not a *me* thing, it's a *we* thing...don't ever catch yourself asking another motorcyclists 'what are you guys doing about (motorcyclist rights)?" Even a simple action -- like calling the Statehouse instead of thinking the next guy will take care of that -- is greater than a pile of inactions and excuses!" Its a fact: more members = more voices (and votes) at the State House. Ride Safe and God Bless.

Taking the Motorcycle Riders Course, she purchased a Yamaha Virago 250 before upgrading to a Harley-Davidson 1200 Sportster Custom. Wanting something larger, she enjoys riding with family and friends every chance she has including benefit rides for Veterans, Special Olympics, delivering gifts to children around the holidays and Cruise for Cancer, as well as organizing several fundraisers for different causes.
 
Sandra says, "I became aware of the MMA about 15 years ago and slowly have learned more about them. I like what we stand for and support the MMA whenever I can. I'd like to educate more people in the good that they do for the biker community because I feel that not enough people know about the organization and what they have to offer us as bikers."
