Conrad began riding dirt bikes at the age of 5. Once he became old enough to handle tools, he had to start working on his bikes to keep them running. This started his passion for mechanics. He worked for 8 years at a local small engine shop where he became their master technician and shop manager. Also in those years he began racing desert and enduro off-road motorcycle circuits. He also worked for 2 years as a service writer for a high-end car shop. He is currently an avid off-road enthusiast on anything from motorcycles to rock crawlers.
