Q&A: Honrio Cham

Q: State your name, geographical location and occupation?
 - 
Honrio Cham – Toronto, Ontario, Canada – Self Employed

Who’s your favorite Canadian?
 
Need to give this one some thought.

Do you remember the first time you saw a bike? What was so attractive about them?
I’ve always been attracted to the aesthetics of things that are mechanical since I can remember. As for motorcycles, I’m a late starter, got hooked about 6-7 years ago, dove in head first and have never looked back. Something about the charm of vintage Harleys has taken over my life, it’s my therapy. 

What bikes do you own? 
1974 Harley Ironhead XLCH
1953 Harley Panhead FL
1948 Harley Flathead WL - work in progress at Jason Parker's

Where do you think you’d be right now/what would you be doing if it weren’t for motorcycles?
 
I’d have a lot more time to think about all other things in life. Right now I have only time for one hobby and passion and it’s bikes. 

Why are motorcycles always “in the shop”?
 
Can’t live without them. 

Do you think that bikes will always be a part of your life? Does riding a motorcycle have a shelf life?
 
Yes, they will be and no there is no shelf life. 

Who shouldn’t own a motorcycle?
 
It would be great if everyone could experience the feeling of riding a motorcycle, but it should come with responsibility and respect. So if you don’t have that, you shouldn’t be on a bike. 

Give a little background to your photo(s) for the Soul Seekers show…
Just 2 shots of my buddy Jason Parker’s latest Knucklehead in mid makeover, shot quickly during a casual visit to his shop. Such an awesome bike, in my head lately.
