Kurt Forget GS Giants Treasurer

My name is: Kurt Forgét

They also call me: Paco (my Baja name)

I am the: Treasurer

My role with the Giants is to maintain the financial responsibilities of this non-profit organization and all related tasks, including reimbursement of expenses, so if you want a check quickly be nice to me - also, my favorite adult beverage is Tequila, for those who want to get reimbursed very quickly...

Fun fact about me: I purchased my first motorcycle at 19 (a 1985 Honda VFR700 sport bike - great first choice, not) against my parents wishes, who made it very clear that if I bought it I would be sleeping on it in the yard. After paying the seller to ride it to my house for me because I didn’t know how to ride, I parked it in front of the garage and gave the owner a ride home, dreading my return the entire time. When I arrived home, my parents quickly said “well if you really wanted it we think you made the right decision” - my only thought was “what did you do with my parents?”

I love...: The amazing people that I met and the friendships that are created while traveling on motorcycles. My life is infinitely more rich and I am grateful for every new experience.

Fun fact about me: Bought my first motorcycle at age 16 without my parents knowledge and I parked the bike on a friend's house for a full year. When they found it, they took it away and sold it, and I did the reasonable and responsible thing to do... bought another one!

I love...: Being in the back country, riding in unfamiliar places and call home any place with an amazing view.

Scott Shultz GS Giants Store Manager

My name is Scott Shultz, I am the Store Director. My job is to fulfill members orders for the great items we have in the GS Giants store. I am also responsible for keeping the shelves here at the store full of all those items.

My riding career got started at an early age of 3 ½ years old. Born and raised in the beautiful state of Wyoming gave me unlimited off road riding as youngster. I was never able to ride pavement until I was licensed at age 14. My obsession with motorcycles continues today, owning and riding nearly every brand of motorcycle I could get my hands on. On my Birthday a few years ago I bought myself my first BMW a R1200 GSA. My life literally changed that day, I joined a brotherhood of bikers called the GS Giants! The Giants have brought me great memories and wonderful friends (my second Family ). The GS Giants welcome riders of all backgrounds regardless of Age , Ability or what they ride. What a fantastic club!
