Farm lands, tight eastern woods and mountains... had my first 250 MX in 6th grade, raced AMA district 6 hare scrambles, currently on bike 25, 26, and 27. **** doesn't heal as fast when you get older, and your mom is correct when she says.. "thats gonna give ya trouble when ya get older". All those jammed thumbs, and hand injuries, concussions, broken bones, stiches... and yes, my knuckles are swollen where I had previous injuries when I was young.. buchards arthritis, its not genetic, but like a calcium deposit on old joint injuries..
Two strokes where my way of venting off, nothing came close to the thrill and excitement.. I would literally be shaking after I got my bike from the high..
I've moved over to ADV biking now, combined with HD's and bar hopping... Oh.... speaking of two strokes... my first street bike when I was 16, was a 75 Kawi H1 triple.... happy I survived, there where times leaving parties, I could not even kick it over, having to be push started instead... LOL
Cira 1989 and still air cooled, 5th gear on the pipe, farm country... Notice the Hi-point "Mad Max boots" LOL
