Alan “Doc” Cotton is the owner and tuner at 812 Suspension Design out of Round Rock, Texas. I noticed 812 stickers on bikes being posted around the world. This clued me in that there was something going on with 812 that I needed to know more about. Doc’s story is deeper, and more meaningful, that I could have ever imagined. Dirt bikes saved his life, literally.
