The 2020 Cannonball will mark the fourth entry for our Flying G team, and we couldn’t be more excited. In 2014 and 2016, Dennis Leggett (with the support of the late Mike Storie) piloted our vintage Indians across the country. This year, Dennis’ son, Luke Garrett, will have the honor of crossing east to west aboard our 1926 Indian Big Chief.
During childhood, Luke had the privilege of growing up around motorcycles- both old and new, and that exposure ignited a passion for two wheels that has fueled his desire to collect vintage motorcycles from all over the globe. His entrepreneurial spirit has further fanned the flames: In 2002, he founded Cornerstone Construction, a company that served the construction needs of commercial and industrial clients along the Gulf Coast of the United States. From that kindling, Luke expanded his business interests into assets across a wide range of sectors, including energy, rail, logistics, and mining. His inextinguishable passion for motorcycles has accelerated alongside his businesses, and he continues to grow a collection of some of the most sought-after motorcycles in existence.
The 1926 Indian Big Chief that our team has built for this year’s race was purchased in 2014 from family friend (and fellow Cannonballer), Gerald Tims. We started the build back in November of 2017 and completed it in time for the 2018 Cannonball but unfortunate events prohibited us from competing. Our thoughts are now turned toward 2021 and crossing our great country aboard this majestic machine with our motorcycle family.
The Flying G team members are Debbie & Dennis Leggett, and Ginger & Luke Garrett and their daughters Ally, Lauren, & Whitney Garrett
