 #TMBTM – THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK! …

CEO GHB – the passion I Hold for Bikes period spans over 30yrs and change, easy. But my love for Dirt bikes is another page in itself. I rode tracks & trails but Street Riding is just a whole other sport period. I don’t promote kids running from police or doing anything to harm himself or herself or anyone else for that matter…. even to the helmet thing. I agree riders should wear them, but in this subculture it’s never been a factor EVER. In 31yrs, I have never seen it or seen it being taught. Riding without a helmet was & is the culture. Just like in skate boarding & somewhat of BMX freestyle, when it took flight they wore helmets; but when it became a new swag, lots of extremists never wore them as much. Look at how street skaters went from a rebel sport where the skaters would tear up the Malls, grinding on all kinds of office spaces, running from the cops & security; then it becomes a league sport, and trust everyone don’t wear helmets. It’s really not about the helmet thing; it’s about being extreme, AN EXTREMIST, which I am… I love all extreme sports. I’m not into football, baseball, basketball, etc.; I’m into X-games & MX period. Born in Harlem and grew up in a suburban area which was 15 min from Harlem. So I have the versatility to do both cultures. I understand the professional side but I live and eat for the Urban riders. Mentored by AL CAPONE during my youth, the swag that was around during that time to what IS now is Insane… MYSELF & TEFF (one of the founders of GHB) along side my cousin, Odi, Buster, James, Mike, Weez & Tye Miles (my PROTEGEE, there are plenty others) STARTED GHB in 1999. My true goal, as well as my partners, is to paint the pic clear to Corporate America & Naysayers and to market this thing, OUR SPORT, like it’s a tru brand…. No different than the METAL MULISHA, A TRU DIRTBIKE CREW, WHO WERE THE OUT CAST BUT A CREW OF BELIEVERS TURNED INTO A PHENOM… THIS IS MY MISSION AS WELL!!… Hats off to all the Dirt bike Crews out there who make noise, Much Respect… to other Harlemites, as myself, like Harlem Legendz, who are branding as well… to Raise It Up (out of Baltimore) that has literally changed the game of a sport that’s “not a sport”, added Swag, as well as promote “Stop Gun Violence”…

The man behind the mask, to me, isn’t about me out there grand standing, NEVER… it’s about taking the best street riders I have ever met & painting the picture to The Who’s Who w/ out Exploiting them & Stealing their gifts…. I’m a rider, a historian & a businessman wrapped all up in one before YouTube, social media, anything. I love those who turn throttles. I distance myself from anything negative natured. If you love the bikes like I do & I can give input, then we brothers. As far as GOHARDBOYZ, it was created to represent brothers from all walks in life, NEVER a gang, if you can do Wheelies or not! We are a family of strangers, which my goal was & still is in the workings to be a FAMILY… #GHBFAMILY… Therefore, no need for my presence. I want to be under the radar, Hat low, In the Cut… Let these kids & Dope riders get the shine. It is My Pleasure TRULY…. RIP Cleve & Ray – 2 kids who meant the world to others & myself… Swirls & Tez – Street riders who lost their lives as well, who wanted the Fame…. That’s what I’m here for!!

  1. I always look up to you n you know that I am very proud of you n miss riding with you n every time I’m outside I see bikes going wild n I get hype don’t care who see me feels like I can breath n feel free AND AGAIN THANK YOU

  2. I met this brother a few years ago and within that I’ve learned this. He is by far one of the most driven people I know. Nothing will get in the way of the magnitude of dedication he has to this movement and brand. I appreciate how he has, with open arms, let me collaborate with the visual aspect of GHB. No ego at all with this guy. Nothing but true admiration for the brother! Continued success Shea.

    Shea is a great dude! Since day one I met him he welcomed me with open arms. When I rolled through Harlem to come film some skateboarding he showed me around, him and the GHB were super supportive! I totally back the GHB, might have to add a collective tattoo piece on my arm. Keep it hype, keep it fun, put the passion in the air and let it loose!

    It’s Bigger Than Bikes, is more than a slogan and I am proof that bonds between strangers are built over motorcycles, shared passions and respect. As an older woman who lives in San Diego, it’s doubtful we would have ever met if my son, Evan, hadn’t died in a motorcycle crash last year. Evan was a fan and follower of GHB on instagram. I was going through his phone the night he died and although I had never heard of you before, I knew at glance why he followed GHB. Evan was an adrenalin junkie: crazy, fearless and completely devoted to wheelies, riding, racing, family and friends. I started following you to keep the bond going.

    Your message was clear from the beginning and you followed up your words with action. I read your posts very carefully and you are an inspiration. You give back everyday with passion, loyalty, honesty and commitment to your family, friends and community.
    I respect and admire your activism and your dedication. You are a mentor, teacher, shrewd businessman and a wonderful example for us all.

    Your sympathy and support during my grief and posting Evan’s picture on your website has touched me more than you can ever know. Thank you.

    You are a class act Mr. Evans.

  7. I am so very proud of you. Everything you put your hands to is going to prosper. I’d like to share this one piece I’d advice. Always, always remember that – Adversity is not a detour. It is part of the path. You will encounter obstacles, and you will make mistakes but that’s just apart of your journey to get to the top.
