Kelvin Davis

Hometown: Columbia, SC
Current ride: Can-Am Spyder RT

You might recognize Kelvin Davis’s smile—after all, it was voted the “Best Smile on Instagram.” He's also a model, blogger, body-positive activist and author of the book “Notoriously Dapper: How to be a Modern Gentleman with Manners, Style, and Body Confidence.” These days, you can find Kelvin riding his Can-Am Spyder RT all over Columbia in his home state of South Carolina.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I do! I have a dog named Pablo and he’s a Shih Tzu!

Where's your favorite place to ride?

I love riding to my grandmother’s house, where it’s nothing but country back roads filled with some of nature’s best scenery for the entire 50-minute long ride. It’s one of the most peaceful rides for me as well.

What about your dream destination?

I would have to say Asheville, North Carolina, or Laguna Beach, California!

Tell us a fun fact about you

I used to be the pop-lock dance champion of Charlotte, North Carolina. I was a battle dancer for the majority of my life. I used to go by the moniker Nugget, but when I became a battle champion, I switched it up to Smoothie.

What’s your favorite food?

Sushi and edamame!

What’s your favorite genre of music?

Hip hop and funk!

Tell us your philosophy of life

It’s a philosophy that says to love yourself, stay positive, and always be kind.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not out there riding?

Recently, I’ve become a plant dad! I love learning about the different plants and how to care for them. It truly brings me joy when I’m not out there on the open road.

What’s your Can-Am must-have accessory?

I would have to say it’s one of the LinQ storage bags. You can pretty much pack an entire picnic in there, travel to the destination of your choice and unpack it once you arrive. You can enjoy the open road, eat with nature, ride back home with a full stomach and get excited about the next adventure.
