About Garrett Kennedy

I'm an Irishman, living in Paraguay in South America. I have a 2011 Ducati Multistrada Pikes Peak model, and a Suzuki Boulevard ... I have two sons, one living in Ireland and the other in England. I like all sorts of sports .... especially golf, cycling, boxing, aviation and motor sports. I am also a Radio Ham - ZP5BVK. When I'm not working (rare enough) I like to tour on my motorbike - the Ducati... I'm planning to take a few spins starting in Jan 2014 and I started an associated blog .... GarrettKennedy.com to tell my story.
