spring forward.

Last weekend was bad ass. It was spring forward (ie. LONG DAYS!!), I rode DH & I learned to ride moto!

I went out to Port Angeles with Muki (Richard Mukai). I hadn’t seen Muki for ages so it was great to catch up. Port Angeles was sweet. We almost bailed last minute because PA got a snow storm the night before but we decided to head out there anyway. Definitely a good choice. The Olympic Dirt Society hosted a Spring Shuttle Day so there were quite a few familiar faces. The turnout was way bigger than I thought it would be...clear indication that people are ready for bikes. Anyway, the trails were a bit snowy but I still had a blast shredding with the boys. The traction was pretty good and I got my drift on all day. It felt so good to get back on the bike!!

Monday I went out to Eastern Washington with Muki, his friend Chris and their ladies. haha. Chris let me borrow his mini moto. The mini was perfect to learn on as it was a 110 with a 160 kit on it. I felt quite at home on it. Getting used to the motor and shifting was difficult but the size was super similar to my DH bike and the thing was AMAZING in the corners. The biggest problem that I had was that I kept accidently pulling and pushing on the bars...not good for the throttle. I have a few nice bruises. haha. I need to buy one. I tried Muki’s 250 and it was pretty scary (especially considering my pull/push problem). I looked like an absolute retard on the thing. Muki was a good teacher...he led me around the track and made me do what I was supposed to do. I have a lot to learn but I am keen!!!

Anyway, It was a great weekend to say the least. I am buying a moto.
