#48 Michael Cables

Rogue River, OR

1948 Harley-Davidson FL

My name is Michael Cables, I was born in Pueblo, Colorado on September 9, 1952. I am an identical twin.

I grew up in Colorado. At the age of 13 my family moved to Tucson, Arizona where I lived for 25 years. I lived a short time in California before moving to Rogue River, Or. where I have been for the last 18 years.

After completing High School, I worked in the Open Pit Copper Mines south of Tucson.  In 1973 I joined the Pipefitters Apprenticeship Program. Upon completing the Apprenticeship program, I was elected Vice President and served on the Executive Board. I went on to become an instructor for the Apprenticeship program. I am now a Retired Steamfitter.

I have been working for the same company for 35 years as an Executive in the process piping industry. My job has taken me all over the world, and through it all Motorcycling has been my passion.

Motorcycling is in my blood. I watched my father build motorcycles in our kitchen as a boy and have had a genuine love for them ever since. I started riding motorcycles when I was 14 and never looked back. My wife of 30 years and I go on countless motorcycle adventures and hope to continue for another 30 years!

I look forward to the Cross Country Chase, win or lose this will be the challenge of a lifetime and I couldn’t be more excited.Michael Cables Cross country Chase Video
