I am a regular dude that eats and breathes dirtbikes.
Growing up on a small horse ranch my parents wouldn’t allow me to have a dirt bike. I could only dream I was jumping everything when we went on long drives….on a dirtbike.
When I moved out of the house I worked a second job to pay for my first dirt bike…
The first bike I bought was a brand new 2005 CRF250x. I rode the wheels off that bike and would spit shine that baby after every ride.
Within a couple of years, I quickly felt like I wanted more power and sold the 2005 and bought 2007 KTM 250SXF.
At the time all my riding buddies mocked me for buying the euro junk…..
I rode Motocross as much as I could but where I live there isn’t very many tracks, which means I spend MOST of my time on singletrack.
While I loved the more power and the WAY better handling. The KTM felt like a mountain bike.
However, like most people learn when they buy an MX bike, they aren’t all that fun on slow technical singletrack. In fact, the worst arm pump I have ever experienced was on that 2007 KTM 250SXF.
That Journey let me to a 2008 KTM 250 XCW…..My very first 2 stroke….again my buddies mocked me until the rode it. Hah.
Fast forward to now….I am currently building my own YouTube channel called Backcountry Life
