Brian was on the first Bikes Over Baghdad tour in 2009 and after that amazing first trip he had no hesitations about going on the second tour. Brian put in lots of time talking with the troops, and put a lot into his riding during the demos with lots of street moves mixed into the shows wherever possible. During downtime he could be found riding bunkers and finding various spots on the different bases—BK definitely made the most of his time in Kuwait and Iraq, and will be doing it all over again on B.O.B.
