Ed Bugash

 

  

Ed has been riding motorcycles on-and-off for an approximate total of 17 years. A lifetime Washington, DC native, Ed's riding career began in the spring of 1962 with the purchase of a new Honda Super 90 (S-90). He remembers the total price, including tax, tags, title and insurance being just under $400!

As an 18 year old, Ed rolled off of the Honda dealership's lot on his new bike with only three laps around the parking lot under his belt. Luckily, he made it home in one piece and enjoyed a great summer of riding. Unfortunately, however, he was t-boned at an intersection that autumn. He survived the collision with minor bruises, but his cycle's frame was bent into the shape of a capital "V"! This put his riding career on hiatus until May of 1998. After rotating through a series of bikes, Ed eventually settled upon his current ride - a 2004 Honda Goldwing GL 1800A.

Ed's extracurricular interests include bicycling, fishing and being outdoors. Recently retired from his position of National Fleet Manager for Rolyn Companies (a disaster restoration company), he looks forward to learning to sail and puttering around his basement shop. Ed has been married to his wife Dianne for 46 years; they have one daughter (Laura) and one son (Eric). The Bugash family is close-knit and enjoys spending social time with the members of PARR.

Ed has been a PARR member since 2002. He has held the offices of President, Vice President, and Sergeant at Arms and has led many day rides. He has also spearheaded social engagements such as PARR's annual autumn picnic.
