Central Coast Classic Motorcycle Club Officers



Bill Killian


Bill Killian began riding motorcycles during the “golden era” of dirt bikes when he found a Yamaha GT-80 under the Christmas tree in 1972.  By his teen years, four-stroke singles became a way of life.  In high school he saved up his paper route money to buy a used ’73 Honda TL-125 trials bike, and his first “car” was a 1978 Yamaha XT 500 E, which he would rely on for primary transportation until college.  Even then he didn’t abandon riding a “thumper”.  For years the streets of San Luis Obispo reported the roar of his big-bore, wide-open single while he commuted to classes at Cal Poly on an ’83 Honda XL-600R.  Now settled down with a family and teaching career, Bill rides a classic continental bike, a 1979 BMW R65, both a juxtaposition and Teutonic reminder for fellow club members that not all classic European bikes have to be British.


Duane Davis

Social Secretary and Pick Up Carrying Motorcycle Specialist
Duane has been riding British bikes since 1956. He rode his BSA C11g single cylinder 250 cc to high school which was about a 25 mile round trip everyday rain or shine. He has ridden BSA and Triumph motorcycles exclusively and currently owns a 1967 TR6c, a 1968 BSA Shooting Star 441 and a 1970 Triumph 650 Tiger 120. Duane is a firm believer in keeping his bikes in original condition.
