David Phillips ‘Dream Job’ Resumé

Winston Salem, NC | davelp007@gmail.com

Summary: Seeking full-time or part-time position in motor sports.  Anything which will get me back into the industry, support my habit and help pay the bills!  Please review my experience below.

Experience:

Honda CT Trail 90 1977 – 1982
– This is what I learned to ride on when I was 11 or 12.
– Had to get on it from the kitchen porch, b/c my feet wouldn’t touch the ground.
– Great first bike, would climb a tree in the extra low gear.
 
Honda MB5  1983 – 1985
– Got this bike when I turned 16.  It had a 50cc two stroke engine.  
– Was quick but not much more than a moped.
 
Honda XL200  1984 – 1986
– First experience with an enduro (street – trail) bike.  Rode this bike all through high school.
– Explored every trail within a two hour radius.
– Sold bike when I went to college.  
 
Honda XL 250  1991 – 1992
– Bought this bike used from an ad in the paper.
– Problems from day one.  Engine blew on the way to Uwharrie National Park.  Sold.
 
Yamaha XT 350  1991 – 1995
– First real bike after college.
– Lots of power, a little to much for me.
– Crashed it and started thinking about things with four wheels
 
Honda 250 Odyssey  1992- 1995
– This four wheeler was insane!  Chopped and modified.
– 250cc, two stroke, was a bat out of hell.
– Cranked it one time, it revved up, took off across the yard (without me in it) and smashed into a tree!
 
Honda 350 Odyssey  1992 – 1995
– Even more insane than the Odyssey 250.
– 350cc, two stroke, independent suspension.
– Had full safety harness and roll cage.
– Centrifugal clutch, no gears, just hit the gas and hold on!
– This quad would climb any hill, cross any creek and sling mud 100 ft.
– This was the most fun land machine I have ever owned!
 
Kawasaki 750 SS Jet Ski  1992 – 1996
– First venture into water sports.
– Crazy fast on the water.  
– You could soar 20 – 30 feet off a wave. The landing was smooth like jumping into a feather bed.
 
Sea Doo Challenger  1996 – 2000
– This boat was like the Odyssey on water.  Twin 750cc engines.
– Incredibly fast. Would literally go 65 mph on the water and turn on a dime.
– Tried it one time, almost knocked a friend and myself out and broke a few ribs in the process.
 
Yamaha 750 Super Jet  2002 – present
– Stand Up Jet Ski, two cylinder 750cc.  
– Very fast and maneuverable.
– A weeks worth of gym time in 10 minutes. 
– Still trying to learn how to submerge it.
 
Honda Ruckus  2004 – 2006
– Neat little bike.  Bought it to ride around downtown.
– Didn’t ride it much, so I sold it.
 
Honda CT Trail 90  2002 – present
– 1975 Collectors Bike, ride it once or twice a year.
– Helps me remember the good ol’ days!
 

Education:

School of hard knocks.  Major: Scar tissue.

Really feeling the pain now that I am getting older.

Interests:

Motor sports, but things with a full safety harness and roll cage.  I see a Polaris Razor in my future 🙂
