"Ovi left Romania in 2005 to work in the hospitality business here in the states. He loves motorcycles, adventure, travel, cooking, food, and wine.
Ovi started working for MotoQuest in 2012. He is a great mechanic, quick with a joke, hard working and we all wonder if he actually gets tired. His great attitude in infectious and if you have not had one of his mixed drinks, you are in for a treat when he is on your trip!"
