We first met Brian Kachinsky a fews years back at Woodward West. We liked his vibe and style, and he liked our gear so it was pretty easy to get along. Brian calls downtown Chicago home, but his second home is wherever his suitcase happens to lay at any given moment. He has been in the BMX game for a while and is still riding as hard as ever. Known for his unique and aggressive approach to street riding, Brian has traveled all around the world and ridden in some of the most obscure, and often forbidden, locations on the planet. Brian has been a long-time friend of Hex, but once the backpack comes off, it’s game on. We hope you enjoy Brian's exclusive words and pictures below as he tells about his involvement with Bikes Over Baghdad in support of our troops overseas.
