I live in Minnesota and I ride year round. I started riding in 2008 after taking a MSF BRC, and quickly fell in love with motorcyles. In 2009, I sold my car after only putting about 1000 miles on it that year. I used the money from the car sale to purchase a Ural, so I could ride in Minnesota winters.

I started out on a 2002 GZ250, and now I have five bikes. After spending two afternoons, one on a XR400, and one on a XR200 I decided I needed a WR250R. In 2010, I tried my hand at flat track on a TTR-125. A fun little bike. In 2011, I tried a couple ice racing bikes. The WR250R will get studded up.

Longest Ride: 665 miles - Indianapolis to Minneapolis on my SV650.
