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!
School of hard knocks. Major: Scar tissue.
Really feeling the pain now that I am getting older.
