Background

I started riding Motorcycles about 2 years ago. After learning how much trouble I could get in and how unsafe it was I started track last year with RideSmart Motorcycle School. Last December RideSmart.info gave me the opportunity to instruct with them. They are Texas's largest Motorcycles school that teaches street riders to hit the track in hopes they become our next races. Now that's me. I now teach novice and intermediate students basics of riding around at the track. I have learned so much in a short time. I plan just received my CMRA (Central Motorcycle Racing Association) racing licence and plan to Race my first Race was in Nov of 2012 at Texas World Speedway. I had a mechanical but was running in front of some top 15 finishers before my bike died. The learning curve in the pits is also coming along strong. My second race ever I place 24th out of 43 riders on a dying battery...Next season I will place better!

I really enjoy this sport, and have tons to learn.. I hope I can pick up some good support here, and learn ways I can afford this sport...Allan Campbell told me...as you get faster, this gets more expensive. I hope to take the my skill and improve, as well as hit as many races in TX and maybe even out of state...



I hope I can find a good balance instructing and learning to ultimately get faster. I still ride a pretty much stock bike and have room to improve my equipment... As of now I am running about seconds behind some of the No
