His father is a motorcycle enthusiast; he passed on his passion to his son. Boas grew up surrounded by motorcycles and bought his first one when he was only fourteen: a 1973 Honda Dax.
“I’ve always loved motorcycles or anything with an engine. I have been riding bikes since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. My first motorcycle was an original 1973 Honda Dax; I worked on it with my father.
That’s when I learned the basics of motorcycle mechanics. Later on I bought my first real motorcycle, a BMW f800GS.”
