Like most my age, I started out riding a lawn mower engine mini bike and been infatuated with motorcycles ever since. In the early 90’s my first real dirt bike was a classic Honda Elsinore. There was a small field next to my house that it got abused on until my skill and size outgrew it. My passion never went away, school all day, ride until dark. Since I was doing well in school, my parents upgraded me in 1996 to a brand new CR80 Big wheel. This bike only increased my skill and love for the sport. In 1998 at a legit motocross track I found out quick that: big jumps + speed + assumed skill =’s a big crash. Decided motocross was not for me. I couldn’t walk away from riding so began exploring forest service roads and BDR routes on a KLR650. Started a family with my high school sweetheart and wanted to share the experience of dirt bikes with my kids. Swapped my KLR for a Husqvarna TE300 and snagged some KLX140’s for my kids. We now spend our time together riding the best mix of fun and skill on Single Track trails! So much better than forest service roads and in my opinion safer than motocross tracks.
Fun Fact: I LOVE doing Belly Flops!
