Dave McKenna has always had a passion for motorcycles, riding Moto X from the age of 5 and his love for riding has seen him become Australia's #1 Street Bike Stunt Rider.
Dave wowed the crowd in Alice Springs after 300 Black Dog Riders rode through the Todd Mall in 2013, but it hit home to all present just how meaningful it was for Dave to join Black Dog Ride in Alice Springs when Dave spoke about his father's suicide. It was the first time Dave had spoken about about it in public.
"I am extremely honoured to be given the opportunity to represent Black Dog Ride. Having lost my father to suicide and going through cancer myself I know all too well the difficulties of dealing with dark times."
"I believe to truly appreciate life it takes dark times to see the light and if it wasn't for my life experiences I would not have taken as many chances, appreciated the little things or even followed my dreams."
"I hope that by sharing my story it will help raise the much needed awareness the topic deserves as well as encourage others to seek help."
"Black Dog Ride is without a doubt a life saving and changing organisation. I am so grateful to be able to help carry on all the great work of it's supporters."
"I look forward to meeting and riding with you all soon!"
We all look forward to catching up with you on a Black Dog Ride, Dave! Welcome to the Team.
