BladeDoc® began as the street name for Dr. David Karuri Maina in 2008. Coined fondly by his fellow bikers due to the fact that he rode a Honda CBR900RR 1998 Fireblade “TRINITY” and that he was a medical doctor by profession. Subsequently, he qualified with a Masters Degree in General Surgery and the dream came alive; he now uses a ‘Blade’ for Work and Play, now riding a 2008 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade “GABRIEL”.
The BladeDoc® tag continued to grow and a major milestone was the commencement of superbike racing in Kenya, then known as The Superbike Trophy (TST) in 2013 and the formation of The Superbike Association(TSA) the following year. In this club, BladeDoc was the founding Vice-Chair and the Team Leader of BladeDoc Racing Team (BDRT); one of the seven teams in the Superbike Championship (SBC) which is a closed on-road racing event organized by TSA. It is at this point his prowess and team spirit and growing fan base necessitated the official registration of the BladeDoc® trademark.
