Raiko Williams

Nickname:  

None

Where I live:  

Concord, CA

Birthday:  

February 21

Curve Unit Status:  

Prospect

Bikes I own:  

2020 BMW S1000RR and 2011 CBR600RR (Track only)

What got me into riding:  

Always been interested in riding - ever since I was a kid.

Why I ride:  

Freedom, fresh air, avoiding traffic, adrenaline, the feeling -- it’s the closest you can get to flying on the ground.

Why I ride with Curve Unit:  

I used to be uncomfortable riding with groups in the Bay Area. I didn't trust how riders would behave. CU does a great job keeping everything organized and controlled. Everyone has been so friendly since the very beginning, and have been able to make me, an extreme introvert, feel comfortable.

Favorite place to ride:  

Tracks: Thunderhill East, Circuit of the Americas, The Ridge (haven't ridden it yet, but it's definitely going to be a favorite) and Street: Anything around Alice's, Mines Rd, Skaggs

Other interests outside of riding:  

Anime, Airplanes, most things mechanical, online games.

Fun fact about me:  

I've been an aircraft mechanic for almost 12 years, and have been to multiple countries. I hope to ride a bike in every country that I visit.

One of my useless talents is:  

Subconscious Mind Reading. I know what you're thinking, but I don't consciously know what you're thinking. It works best on Ash.

My walkup song:  

This is impossible to pick as I change what I listen to all the time. I guess for now, it is “Welcome Home” by Coheed and Cambria
