Martin, Susan, & Rocky Neff
Hi. We’re the Neff Family; Martin, Susan, and our canine companion Rocky.
I was born in 1967, and my wife was born in 1964. We met and married 09/10/11. I’ve worked in the automotive industry for over 30 years, and Susan is an Executive Assistant. One of my passions is music. I’ve started playing guitar at 7 and bass at 15. I’ve played in bands most of my life and currently play guitar in a 1960s style Surf band called The Men From S.U.R.F.
In 2011 I suffered what should have been a fatal heart attack. Recovery was slow. My doctor suggested a low impact exercise regiment. I had an old Schwinn Cruiser 7 collecting dust in the garage, so I cleaned it up and got back on the road. After my cruiser was stolen, I replaced it with a Drifter and later added a 411-2. Susan had a Jaguar, and we bought her a Voyageur 2. Once I started riding regularly and began to commute to and from work, we added a Spirit Trailer to our collection so that we could shop and run errands.
In 2015 we found Rocky (actually, he found us). He and I just clicked. From the first day we brought him home, he’s been riding with me in the trailer all over town.
