Buddy Suttle

"I'VE RIDDEN MOTORCYCLES MY WHOLE LIFE, IT IS MY LIFE."

states Buddy Suttle, rider and co-founder of UNKNOWN Industries. Buddy began riding Harleys at age twenty and rides them because as a kid, many of the people he looked up to rode them. Buddy Suttle and Nick Leonetti knew of each other through racing and riding dirt bikes but they had never formally met, until one day they saw each other with some friends out riding their Harley's. Buddy followed them to a practice spot and the friendship took off from there. In 2009, Buddy began putting his videos on YouTube under the title "Harley Wheelies." To date, the "Harley Wheelies" video series views are over 2.5 million, and in August of 2013, UNKNOWN released their first movie on DVD, "13th Level."br/>
"We always wanted to do something bigger than what we were doing on our own with riding and with our videos. We haven't changed what we are doing, we've just had the opportunity to get our Harley's involved with a lot more."
