Trigger Gumm, born in Orange County California on June 15, 1968, was totally fascinated with any and all motorcycles. He rode his first Honda 50 in the second grade every day in the hills of San Clemente, California. In Ramona, California, through age 12 he was always building dirt jumps and competing with the neighborhood kids to see who could go higher and farther. He eventually turned pro and raced super cross for two years. He liked jumping so much he embarked on a quest for bigger, farther, and faster jumps.
During this time he was featured in 20+ action sport motorcycle videos. He seems to be attracted to the risk, excitement, and wild times that moto-x offers: “What I like about it is, when you make a mistake, you make a serious-ass mistake. It ain’t just like a little fender bender. It’s pretty much blood, bones crackin’ through your skin, definitely surgeries–a lot of pain and suffering. That’s what I like about it.” It should be no surprise that each of Trigger’s many serious injuries is a badge of honor that he wears proudly.
When avoiding the public eye, Trigger can usually be found riding his Honda by himself out in the hills, or with good friends on the weekends sometimes. In off-bike time, Trigger enjoys skateboarding, surfing, boating, hanging out with his wife and playing with animals, of which he owns many. When he’s not breaking bottles over his head while raising hell with the Metal Mulisha, he, ironically, enjoys relaxing as much as possible.
