I first featured the art work of David Camp back in January 06 on my bike week site with a great piece of work called “American Still“. David’s work is amazing. I have seen the original picture that this piece of art below was drawn by.
Brian Green, the individual who modeled for this work, is a TSgt with the USAFR 419 Fighter Wing at Hill AFB in Utah. In this scene, he sits upon his 04 Road King custom in front of an F-16 fighter aircraft that he supports. The title for this piece, “Choose Your Ride”, reflects the idea that Brian would never turn down the chance to fly in the F-16 but he prefers riding his bike through the mountains of the southwest and furthest reaches beyond more than anything else.
He’s a dedicated airman who has served his country well. At his first assignment, he was involved in the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Dahran, Saudia Arabia. He was awarded the commendation for valor medal when he saved the life of another severely wounded airman. As a result of the bombing, Brian himself was wounded and refused medical treatment.
Later, he served in Bahrain, Saudia Arabia, Prince Sultan Air Base and Kuwait Al-Jabbar in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2001.
Some rides he’s embarked on include, Salt Lake City, Utah to Las Vegas, San Francisco, Texas and twice to Sturgis. His dedication to his country as well as to his hog is exemplary.
