At BreachBangClear.com, Sara Liberte tells the story of an amazing encounter including national champion shooter Taran Butler and actor Keanu Reeves.
It started with a motorcycle trip. The Quail Motorcycle Gathering is near Monterey, which was my destination. Before going I checked in with old instructor/friend Fred Ruiz to see if there were any shooting classes in the vicinity during the timeframe I was to be there. He put me in touch with another friend, Johnny Law, who wondered if I might be interested in spending the day with Taran Butler.
Why, yes. Yes I would.
Butler is a thirteen time Multi-Gun national champion, and the man behind Taran Tactical Innovations. Turns out he was going to be in the area, as was Keanu Reeves. The Quail Motorcycle Gathering is a unique show featuring a number of pristine classic and vintage motorcycles as well as new models, and there are always a number of “motorcycle dignitaries” present. Reeves is one of those; many people are unaware that approximately five years ago he started the Arch Motorcycle Company with talented motorcycle builder Gard Hollinger.
Arch Motorcycles had a few bikes on display and Reeves was on site, speaking with everyone from those interested in the motorcycle brand to those who just wanted to snap a selfie with John Wick (or Neo, or Tod Higgins, or Tom Ludlow, or …). Like most of you and about 7 million other people, I’d seen the video of Keanu just killin’ it on the range while training for the John Wick sequel. You know, this one.
