The Man behind the Lens: Kent Meisemannn


528058_266702906762794_1392247619_nSteve & I are extremely heartbroken to announce that our beloved friend & “brother” Kent Meisemann passed away Saturday Dec. 14 2013.  It’s very hard to express our sorrow in loosing such an amazing friend. Kent was an inspiration in so many ways in our lives. He is and always will be a part of our family.


Kent had a strong passion for anything on two wheels from the time that he was a young boy. If you ever attended any kind of bike event in the St. Louis area, chances are you saw Kent with his camera. He loved to take photos. Even more, he loved to see your face light up when he gave you a copy of a photo that he had taken of you.279873_260731833937517_5388022_o


Kent’s second home was Doc’s Harley-Davidson. He enjoyed every moment with the “coffee club” & the friends & memories that he made there.266409_237766406236459_278393_o

Kent was a very unique man in so many ways. If you had the opportunity of knowing Kent as we did, then you know exactly what I mean. He would let you know exactly what he was thinking and how he felt.  And headstrong was his middle name. He had qualities you don’t find a lot of places, which made him unique & genuine & a truly beautiful soul.291796_296455617031805_1261598314_n

To our dear friend & our brother Kent Meisemann, enjoy riding those highways in the sky. Farewell my friend from the Kleinhans family and the Throttle America Crew.279995_260731890604178_2182195_o154592_178783772132324_7969045_n
