My Story


Ever since I was really young, I have enjoyed motorcycles. I like motorcycles because they are fast, powerful, and fun to ride with my family.  When I was 5 years old, I would always go to an ATV shop with hundreds of ATVs.  I guess I could say that I was interested in ATVs at the time, but then a couple months later I went to my Aunt’s house and they had a whole bunch of dirt bikes.  That is when I first learned about dirt bikes.


When I was seven years old, we moved to Florida and I purchased my first dirt bike.  It was a KTM Pro Senior 50.  Along with the dirt bike, I had to purchase safety gear.  I purchased pants, helmet, jersey, gloves and special boots.  We used to ride it along the Florida Turnpike by Okeeheelee Park. 


When I was eight years old we started to go to a place called Greater Yamaha.  It was an awesome place that had dirt bikes, ATVs and boats.  I loved looking at the new dirt bikes and eventually purchased a Yamaha TTR-90.  I thought it was the best bike in the world!  My Dad, my little brother and I started going dirt biking together on the weekends.  We would usually go to Moroso Motorsports which had an awesome supercross track and a little motocross track.


Then when I was ten years old I purchased a Yamaha TTR-125.  It was the fastest bike I had so far.  The problem was that when the new motocross season started I could not race because I did not have the right kind of bike.  To race I needed a two-stroke bike.  So for my birthday I got a two-stroke Yamaha YZ-85.  This dirt bike is by far the fastest that I have had.  It can go at least 65 MPH!  Now that I had the right bike, I was ready to race.


There are two different types of races, Hare Scrambles and Motocross.  A Hare Scramble is when you run to your bike, start it, and then race through the forest on a seven-mile trail.  Motocross is a race that contains up to 40 riders that race on a dirt track.  There are tracks and forest land all over the state of Florida.  The main reason that I like motocross is because I can ride my dirt bike at all day events with my family and friends.   This is why I like motocross.
