I hope you are all doing well. I will start this blog off with telling you all that my shoulder is doing great. I have been back on the motorcycle for about two weeks and must say, I haven't lost any speed, reaction time, hand eye coordination ect. So that's a big relief. I am planning my first race back to be round four of the Endurocross series September 15th in Ontario, CA.
With that update out of the way, I will tell you about what has been going on recently with me. I am writing this blog from an airport in Madison, Wisconsin with another two hours until my flight. My gear sponsor Moose Racing flew me out here for the Parts Unlimited/Drag Specialties show. A very short, sweet and to the point type of trip where I left Saturday morning and flew back Sunday. Moose racing was represented by myself and Arenacross champ Tyler Bowers, while Thor brought out Mike Brown and Ryan Villopoto. It was a time to meet the district reps from around the United States and all the amazing people within the different companies that supply us motorcycle enthusiasts with the highest quality products available. All the different companies had there newest products on display. Moose racing's gear is absolutely amazing, I am so excited to get to wear the new stuff, it's so stylish and comfortable. Other than that, it was just a good time to hang out with all my racing buddies and catch up.
One thing that I really like about these events is the bonding you get to have with the other athletes. From hanging with Jason Britton talking about his stunt riding, to talking to RV2 about road bicycling and hanging with Brownie (Mike) is always a blast. Everyone is out of their, "work environment," and the hair is let down; everyone becomes real. These guys, along with most motorcycle guys for that matter, are the truest blue dudes you can meet. They are real guys with real life situations that just love riding motorcycles and are lucky enough to do it as a profession. Not that any of them are fake by any means in there work environment, but we were able to meet in a place where there were no distractions or pressures to win. Everyone was just relaxed and enjoying themselves.
Every trip is fun and memorable for me, but as excited as I usually am to go, I get equally excited to head home and be with my family. I always miss them like crazy. I hope to see you all at the Endurocross race coming up in Ontario, CA. Be sure to stop by the Monster Energy Kawasaki semi and say Hello. I would love to meet you if I haven't already. See you all soon.
