Started riding when I was 9. First bike was a Yamaha 60 - couldn't beleive I didn't have to peddle!. Started racing MX and flat track at 10 on a Steen (Hodaka 80 engine). Quit riding bikes when I was 21. At the time I was running expert class in Southeast on a RM125. Didn't get on a dirt bike (XR250) again until last year (20 years later!). Now I can't beleive I ever quit. Having more fun now just tooling around in the woods than I ever.

3rd season on a WR400 (my first dedicated dirt bike) I think that description above of 'controlled falling' more describes my so-called style.

Home made Mini Bike

First bike came in peices in a carboard box, it was a 1981 TT 250.... someone had seized the crank and I got the whole thing for $50. Dad and I rebuilt it from the ground up, painted the frame and everything. It was cherry.
Goes without saying, my WR is a TAD faster than that old bike.
