Professinal Stunt Rider Bill Dixon (Bill D) and his fiancée and tandem stunt riding partner Destiny are the reigning undefeated Tandem Stunt Team Champions. Bill and Destiny will also be staring in the upcoming sportbike stunt series Stunts 101. Bill has also taken 1st place in the 2008 Stuntwars Series, 2nd place in the 2008 XDL Sportbike Freestyle Championship Series and 1st place at the opening of the 2009 XDL Series in Lake Havasu, Arizona. Bill is also the unofficial World Record holder for the “Longest Stoppie” at 1200 feet.

Bill is striving to be the best stuntman in the world, and when he's not stunting, he enjoys racing R/C cars. Bill describes his personality as outgoing and funny, and people tell him that his best attribute is being an overall well-rounded rider. Just for fun we decided to ask Bill some of the same questions we asked his fiancée Destiny, which are normally reserved for our cover models, but we figured what the hell.

CC: What is your dream bike?
Bill D: I've already have it, the R1.

CC: What is your most memorable riding experience?
Bill D: The day I scraped a switchback wheelie because I have one each day and that was the latest one. It was sick!

Bill D: Roadhazards.

CC: Who is your favorite tattoo artist?
Bill D: Johnny Nobody. He hooks me up for free, and he's the best!

CC: Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself?
Bill D: In a group, because it's harder to be singled out by the police.

CC: Who are some of your closest riding buddies?
Bill D: Sean Parrish, Joe Dryden, Nick Apex and Drastic Dan just to name a few.

CC: Is there anything else you'd like to share with our readers?
Bill D: I love to ride, I love to show off, and most of all, I like to please the crowd. There is no better feeling in the world than screaming down the track on my Yamahas and hearing the fans go wild! Some people say they were afraid to approach me at events, but if you see me, come talk to me. It's what I do and I enjoy it!

CC: Thanks a lot for the interview Bill, and good luck this year and with your new sportbike stunt series Stunts 101.
