Snail was always more of an outsider. In his early years at a Catholic school he hardly had anyone to talk to or hang out with due to his silent nature. This changed after he met Rex Thunderstrom (Gale) and Micheal Jones (Kale). He felt they were the only ones who understood him. He is the least socially adept of the trio. However, he still ultimately felt a lack of purpose up until Gale started to obsess over motorcycles. Snail was never and still isn’t 100% convinced by the whole motorcycling thing, but ultimately it became his calling.
Afterwards in their teen years they would commonly cause mischief around Juneau (like riding bikes naked in road traffic and making watermelon bombs) but he was still was able to get a job alongside Gale as a pizza delivery man while Kale had to be a Gas station worker (which he still is bitter over). However, things slowly grew dull around Juneau.
This changed after they heard that one of their favorite Youtubers named "ChernarusBikeBoy" announced he would host a race in Chernaurus and the gang decided to go using the money they had saved up. When they arrived in Chernaurus they realized they didn’t have enough money to return. Kale decided the best option was to bet all of their remaining money on the race. However, the group ultimately would fail horribly in the race and lose all of their money. After this, Gale (who was the natural leader of the group) decided they should form a small-time gang which he dubbed "Gale Motorcycle Club", with Gale giving him and Kale the rank of VP, after a lot of nagging over the name. When the outbreak finally occurred, they all drove their bikes around frantically in order to avoid being killed. They eventually lost their bikes, through a number of factors. They now roam Chernarus, seeking fame, and fortune.
