Moo thoroughly enjoys tyre repairs and can often be found on bended knees in the workshop. A child at heart, he regularly races toy cars on his custom made race track on his property.

In his younger days, Moo raced road bikes and billycarts and also did Enduro racing. With a large collection of wheeled vehicles from pushbikes to remote controlled cars to motorcycles, there is not much that Moo can’t fix when it comes to servicing and repairs.
