His hobby is tinkering with old motorcycles, and he has an encyclopaedic knowledge of British bikes right from the 30s manufacturers, to the 60s throaty metallic beasts.

Patterson is well known in the motorcycle world, he has participated in Bonneville USA. His trusted steed is the Viscount motorcycle, and he has beaten many world records in a 1000cc MPS-CG class. His average time was 124.86, thus comfortably beating the 123.26-record set by Harley Davidson. His latest feat was going at a top speed of 132.508 mph during his first run. On his return trip, he clocked a time of 131.284mph!
