The GEICO Hot Bike Tour is coming up on us fast. That said, we'll be running bios on all the invited builders leading up to the big event. Last year, Scott Kietzmann won a title with his custom Victory. Here's what the defending champ had to say to our little pop quiz.

  1. Why'd you agree to be a builder for the Tour? Well ...... we won last year and need to defend our title! Gotta let the world know that you can build a proper "Hot Bike" out of a Victory as well :)

  2. Describe your Tour bike in one word. BOOST

  3. How would you describe your building style? I am a "Car Guy" that builds bikes. My style is very automotive inspired....... we build muscle cars with two wheels.

  4. What do you like most about the Tour? The riding, the bikes, the builders, the carnival atmosphere at each venue ........ shall I continue?

  5. How did you get started building motorcycles? I had a vision for my Victory in 2005 and could not find any shops to take this platform seriously. See a need, fill a need.

  6. The tour runs through barbecue country. With the South being the birthplace of barbecue, which do you prefer: ribs, brisket, or pulled pork? ALL OF IT Y'ALL!
