Greg became a qualified tradesman in panel-beating at the age of 19, working in the industry for 19 years. This gave him the welding and sheetmetal skills to build the back of the North Queensland Trail Bike Adventures Mitsubishi Canter 4×4 support vehicle, with great help from his Father-in-Law, Kent and brother-in-Law Shane, the project was completed in a matter of weeks, he now knows the truck from the ground up. After serving his dues as a panel beater, and wanting to get into the great outdoors, he was drawn to the ocean and started a successful fishing business called Torres Seafoods. The business operated for 10 years and Torres Seafoods was the largest harvester of coral trout from the Torres Straits, when the government bought out the entire fishery in 2008. Greg is still a very keen fisherman and loves to target the awesome Barramundi. Greg gained several levels of marine engineering qualifications through owning his own trout vessels, along with his Skippers and Navigation tickets. Greg has always liked adventure and excitement and in his early 30’s he gained his unrestricted private pilots license and owned and flew his own Piper Cherokee for 7 years flying all around the Gulf and Mornington Island on many a fishing adventure. Greg has been riding bikes since the age of 11 and in his late teens, raced Enduro with the Manly Warringah Motorcycle Club on his favourite Suzuki PE 175. Greg continues to ride actively today, with all his mates, and is an active committee member and rider of the Cairns Dual Motor Sports Riders Association.
Monique started her career in the Tourism Industry over 30 years ago, when her parents operated a world famous Boutique Dive Resort in the Cayman Islands. Here, she was exposed to the different aspects of dealing with the public and this involvement with Tourism sparked her interest at an early age, and helped her to decide her future. Opportunities were presented to her to continue in the Tourism Industry, which involved travelling to various sites to promote Tourism. Monique then branched out and became a legal secretary for a few years, with a highly respected legal firm in the Cayman Islands. From there she opened her own upmarket menswear and surf wear clothing retail business in Smithfield, North Queensland, which was very successful. She sold this business after 9 years and opened another store, being a silver jewelry store in the Cayman Islands, which she operated for 10 years. Along with owning her own stores, she also worked in Real Estate for a number of years in the Cayman Islands. Monique’s passion for Tourism, travelling and adventure was always foremost in her mind. With her husband Greg, who is highly experienced in motorcycling, Monique saw the opportunity to open their own business in Trail Bike Touring, specialising in tours to Cape York and the local surrounding areas of Cairns/Tablelands and Far North Queensland.
Greg and Monique recognized the potential for a full service, world class Trail Bike Tour Company, in the fast growing industry of motorcycle enthusiasts seeking adventure and individual events to mark off their “bucket list”.
