Rolling Physics Problem is a motorcycle blog written by Greg Shamieh. Greg believes that masterful motorcycling is an outgrowth of understanding the complex physics of two wheeled vehicles. Greg tried to get the Maryland MVA to fit ‘Rolling Physics Problem’ on a motorcycle vanity tag once, and they still haven’t stopped laughing.
Greg is a lifetime motorcyclist that enjoys writing almost as much as he enjoys being in the saddle. His work has appeared in Motorcyclist Magazine, the Mid-Atlantic’s Motorcycle Times, and on the web in One Wheel Drive. Greg also writes about technology topics in Ouroboros.
Greg lives in Frederick County, Maryland, in a tiny rural town with lots of dairy cows, and with many dirt roads complete with stream crossings. He has been married for 29 years to his wife Doris, a fine artist who paints in watercolor and oils and designs needlework. He has three children – a son, Devin, 27, a daughter, Wallis, 22, and a son Finn, 19. Greg and his family love to travel and camp in America’s National Parks. Greg is also a skilled poet, an enthusiastic but relatively less skilled musician, and an obsessive BMW motorcycle enthusiast who rides, repairs and restores modern and vintage machines.
